The Tigor EVs are being manufactured for the Government’s order of electric vehicles from the Energy Efficiency Services Ltd, an entity under the Ministry of Power

The company has not divulged specifications of the Tigor EV yet.

The vehicles are part of the tender floated by the Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) for 10,000 EVs. N Chandrasekaran, chairman, Tata Sons & Tata Motors flagged off the first lot from its Sanand facility in Gujarat. Later, Mahindra was given the option of matching Tata's bid for a portion of the 500 orders under the first phase. This means the Indian manufacturer has to deliver only 250 vehicles till the LoA for rest 100 units is not issued, which is expected to be received in the near future.

Watch accompanying video of CNBC-TV18's Ronojoy Banerjee to know more about a milestone in India's push for electric vehicles as well as Tata Motors' EV plans.

The Tigor EV is equipped with electric drive systems developed and supplied by electric powertrain specialist, Electra EV. With Tigor EV, we have begun our journey in boosting e-mobility and offering a full range of electric vehicles to the Indian customers. "I congratulate the entire Tata Motors team for this commendable achievement and wish them the very best as they go forward on this journey", said N Chandrasekaran.

According to Guenter Butschek, CEO & MD, Tata Motors, "It is indeed a momentous occasion for us as we have shown an exemplary teamwork spirit to overcome all challenges in delivering this project".

Tata Motors is committed to the Government's vision for electric vehicles by 2030 and will work in a collaborative manner to facilitate faster adoption of electric vehicles and to build a sustainable future for India. I also recognize the invaluable contribution made by Electra EV as part of this team.

Ratan N Tata, Chairman Emeritus, Tata Group, Guenter Butschek, CEO and MD, Tata Motors and members of the Tata Motors Executive Committee were present at the plant for the rollout.
