Tata Motors has been on the forefront in terms of electric mobility and has the maximum number of battery powered vehicles on offer in the country. In a separate development, the company said that improvement of charging infrastructure will provide nuanced solutions for decreasing range anxiety among buyers. He added that the ability to charge cars fast, mainly on the highways will also help the cause.
The company added that in the last one year, around 3,000 chargers have been put up across the country which was not the case four to five years back. And not only Tata Power is putting up these public chargers, there are many regional players and start-ups also which are coming into this space. So in the next two to three years, the situation will be very different, Chandra had said.
The company is reimagining its entire product portfolio and operations to achieve net zero greenhouse gas by 2045. Chandra stated that the transition from traditional fuels to EV ecosystem is ‘inevitable’, and that the world for the automobile company after achieving its net zero target would be ‘fully electric’.
