Tata Motors has signed a supply agreement with Evera, the EV-only ride hailing platform in the Delhi-NCR region, for delivery of 2,000 XPres-T electric vehicles. These EVs will be an addition to the already existing fleet of Tata Motors’ EVs currently in use with the aggregator.

Shailesh Chandra, Managing Director, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility, said, “With the Xpres-T EV sedan we have created a new benchmark in the fleet market, and it is heartening to see renowned fleet aggregators joining the green mobility wave with us.

We are also looking to expand to other cities to fast-track the EV adoption in the country by creating an end-to-end ecosystem. This collaborative approach with Tata Motors shall further our vision and allow consumers to access a network of safe-mobility solutions across the country.”
