Mumbai / From being a ‘global inspiration’ to working towards ‘connecting aspirations’— Tata Motors joins the global #WorldEVDay movement to be inaugurated on September 9 as a founding partner to celebrate the shift to sustainable road transport and a zero-emissions future.

The #WorldEVDay will be celebrated every year to encourage current and prospective drivers of electric vehicles, local transport authorities and fleet operators to recognize the vital role they play in enabling a truly sustainable transport ecosystem.

Key elements of an EV ecosystem include charging solution, supplier base for EV components, vehicle financing, and mobility service providers. Tata Motors is one of the foremost players in India to have supported the development of EV ecosystem in India.

The initiative has been launched in conjunction with the Swedish-Swiss firm ABB and sustainability media company Green.TV. Commenting on the partnership, Shailesh Chandra, President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors said: “We at Tata Motors are proud to be one of the frontrunners in driving EVs adoption here. We are not only offering aspirational and accessible electric vehicles, but are also creating a holistic e-Mobility ecosystem that addresses barriers to EV adoption.”

Commenting on the partnership Ade Thomas, Founder of Green.TV said: “#WorldEVDay is a global movement that will really turn the dial on sustainable mobility and we are delighted to be partnering with Tata Motors who has been at the forefront of this evolution in India.”

Tata Motors recently launched “Tata uniEVerse” that closely leverages the strengths and expertise of other Tata Group companies to create a holistic and a viable environment to drive the adoption of electric vehicles in India. Recently, the company also launched the Tata Nexon EV – an aspirational SUV for personal car buyers looking for a thrilling, connected drive experience with zero emissions and attractive pricing.

With a focus on engineering and tech-enabled automotive solutions catering to the future of mobility, Tata Motors is India’s market leader in commercial vehicles and amongst the top four in the passenger vehicles market. Tata Motors, a $44 billion organization, is a leading global automobile manufacturer of cars, utility vehicles, pick-ups, trucks and buses.

Part of the $110 billion Tata group, Tata Motors is India’s largest and the only OEM offering extensive range of integrated, smart and e-mobility solutions. It has operations in India, the UK, South Korea, Thailand, South Africa, and Indonesia through a strong global network of 134 subsidiaries, associate companies and joint ventures, including Jaguar Land Rover in the UK and Tata Daewoo in South Korea.
