Tata Motors launches Ace EV with 154km range in Nepal
Tata Motors expands its range of offerings in Nepal with the Ace EV; first lot of the zero-emission small CV has been delivered to customers in Kathmandu.
Tata Motors has launched the Ace EV, the zero-emission version of its popular small commercial vehicle, in Nepal, through its sole authorised distributor, Sipradi Trading. The first Tata Ace EV fleet has been delivered to customers in Kathmandu. This marks the debut of the Ace EV in the global market.
After conducting stringent real-world tests, Tata Motors had unveiled the Tata Ace EV in May 2022. At launch, the Tata Ace EV had received pre-bookings for 39,000 units and the company had signed MoUs with leading e-commerce companies and logistics service providers in the Indian market.
The Ace EV, the first product featuring Tata Motors’ Evogen powertrain, is powered by a 27kW (36hp) motor which develops 130 Nm of peak torque. The zero-emission small commercial vehicle has a certified range of 154 kilometres, an advanced battery cooling system and regenerative braking system to boost the driving range. Designed for intra-city applications and targeted at e-commerce logistics and last-mile mobility operators, the Tata Ace EV has a cargo volume of 208 cubic feet and gradeability of 22%, allowing easy ascent in fully loaded conditions. The Ace EV’s container is customised to suit the requirements of customers in Nepal.
Anurag Mehrotra, Head – International Business, Tata Motors Commercial Vehicle Business, said: “Electrification of passenger and cargo transport is an irreversible trend. At Tata Motors, our commitment to accelerate the adoption of cleaner and greener transport solutions is gaining greater strength. The introduction of the Ace EV marks a major milestone in our journey to deliver zero-emission cargo mobility in Nepal. Nepal flourishes with clean electricity through its hydroelectric projects, and the launch of the new Ace EV will further complement the country’s stride towards clean energy.”
