Tata Motors has announced a partnership with Lithium Urban Technologies, an EV-based urban transportation service provider which will deploy 5000 Xpres T electric sedans, across the country, for employee transportation.

The company said it would commence deliveries in phases and complete the deployment by 2023.  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. Targeted at mobility services, corporate and government fleet customers, the Xpres-T EV offers an optimal battery size, captive fast charging solution, which will ensure outstandingly low cost of ownership in addition to safety and passenger comfort.”

In July 2021, Tata Motors launched the ‘XPRES’ brand, exclusively for fleet customers and XPRES-T’ EV is the first vehicle under this brand. The electric sedan comes with 2 range options – 213 km and 165km (ARAI certified range under test conditions). It packs a high energy density battery of 21.5 kWh and 16.5 kWh and can be charged from 0- 80 percent  in 90 mins and 110 mins, 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 will give it a differentiated presence from other Tata cars.  

Sanjay Krishnan, Founder & CEO of Lithium Urban Technologies said, “Our relationship with Tata Motors dates back to 2019 when we placed the first order for 500 vehicles. We are delighted that Tata Motors has brought to market a portfolio of vehicles that cater to the entire application spectrum of corporate and business travel needs".
