Two months after it introduced the Xpres brand, which exclusively targets fleet customers, Tata Motors today officially launched the Xpres-T EV. Targeted at mobility services, corporate and government fleet customers, the Xpres-T EV will come with an optimal battery size and captive fast charging solution, both of which are designed to offer a very low cost of ownership.
The Xpres-T EV, which is essentially the Tata Tigor electric sedan, houses a high energy density battery of 21.5 kWh and 16.5 kWh with two range options – 213km and 165km (ARAI-certified range under test conditions). Available in two trim options, the Xpres-T EV comes with single-speed automatic transmission, dual airbags, ABS with EBD as standard across variants.
The electric sedan can be charged from 0- 80% in 90 minutes and 110 minutes (for 16.5 kWh and 21.5 kWh respectively), using fast charging or can also be normally charged from any 15 A plug point. The premium black theme interior with standard automatic climate control and electric blue accents across its interior and exterior give it a differentiated presence from other Tata cars.
Developed solely for commercial fleet customers, the Xpres T EV’s pricing, net of the FAME subsidy, starts at Rs 954,000 and will be applicable on vehicles used for public transport or those registered for commercial purposes as per guidelines issued by DHI. The Xpres T EV sticker price could fall even further if demand incentives / subsidies extended by various state governments are applicable.
