Reducing carbon footprint

This deal has been a win-win situation for Tata Motors and Cognizant. While Cognizant believes in best environmental practises, Tata Motors envision green mobility solutions for the future.
Tata Motors, a USD 5 billion organization, is committed to the Government’s vision of e-mobility in India. ‘We at Tata Motors, are extremely committed to the Government’s vision of e-mobility in India.We will continue to strengthen our portfolio of EV offerings across our passenger and commercial vehicles, to meet future requirements’ says Mr. Shailesh Chandra, President –Electric Mobility Business and Corporate Strategy, Tata Motors.
Unlike other vehicles that run on fossil fuel, EVs operate when charged at EV charging stations and the first charging station was installed in Mumbai. As part of the EV orders, two fast charging stations at Hyderabad will be installed. It is the first time that Tata Motors would be setting up charging stations outside Mumbai.
Tata Motors, that promote a pollution free environment, are yet to release the due date for delivering these EVs.
