Tata Motors and Uber Partner to Introduce 25,000 Electric Vehicles in India

In a major push towards sustainable mobility, Tata Motors has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with ride-sharing app Uber on February 20, to introduce 25,000 XPRES-T Tata Motor Electric Vehicles (EVs) into their premium category service. The partnership will aid Uber in electrifying its services across seven cities in India, including Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad, Bengaluru, and Ahmedabad.

The XPRES-T electric sedan comes with two range options of 315 km and 277 km, and a high energy density battery of 26 kWh and 25.5 kWh, which can be charged from 0-80 percent in 59 minutes and 110 minutes, respectively, using fast charging or can also be normally charged from any 15 A plug point, which is easily available and convenient.

Tata Motors will begin delivering the cars to Uber fleet partners in a phased manner starting in February. This partnership represents the largest EV collaboration yet between an automaker and a ridesharing platform in India.

Shailesh Chandra, MD, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility, said, “Offering customers our environmentally friendly EV ride experiences via Uber’s Premium Category service will accelerate the adoption of green and clean personal ride-sharing.”

The ride-hailing industry is rapidly adopting the electrification of its fleet, and this collaboration between Tata Motors and Uber marks a major step towards the transition to zero emissions.

In July 2021, Tata Motors launched the ‘XPRES’ brand exclusively for fleet customers, and the XPRES-T EV is the first vehicle under this brand. In fact, Tata Motors also signed an agreement with BluSmart Electric Mobility in 2022 to deliver 10,000 XPRES-T electric vehicles to the company.

Recently, Ola’s founder and CEO, Bhavish Aggarwal, stated that the firm plans to launch an EV fleet with around 10,000 cars. Electric vehicle cab service company, BluSmart, which raised around $25 million in a combination of equity and debt funding in May 2022, is also expanding its fleet services.

This partnership between Tata Motors and Uber will undoubtedly contribute towards building a sustainable future and promoting green and clean mobility in India.
