Tata Motors’ latest addition of Tigor EV comes with an ARAI-certified range of 213 kms, offers an enhanced driving range, low cost of ownership, connectivity, comfort of a sedan and zero emissions.

Prakriti E-mobility claims that the EVERA app will allow users to book cabs that are all-electric. As a result, their journey will give off no emissions and will help reduce the carbon footprint one journey at a time. Some of the key features of the EVERA app includes -

- Zero Surge Charge: No amount of traffic or demand will bring about a change in the cost of the journey. As a result, customers can book cabs without worrying about absurd prices.

- Zero Cancellations: Our driver can’t cancel the trip and only our customers have the ability to cancel their trip.

- Zero Emissions: As our fleet is all-electric, there will be no emissions in their lifespan. As a result, cities will eventually be able to breathe easy without worrying about toxic fumes from exhaust pipes.
