“Our XPRES-T EV fleet offers optimal battery size along with a captive fast charging solution and has already set benchmarks in its category. Tata Motors is constantly working to educate and improve the adoption of electric mobility in India and we hope more people will join us on this journey as we mobilize the nation”, Shailesh Chandra, MD of Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles and Tata Passenger Electric mobility.

With the increasing fleet size, we are leading India on the path to reliable, sustainable and zero-emission mobility while also creating more inclusive and economic opportunities for driver partners,” said Anmol Singh Jaggi, co-founder of BluSmart Electric Mobility.
