India’s largest automaker, Tata, is working to offer an “electric solution” for most of its car models as well. With the all-electric Tata 45X, one of the group’s first electric cars has now been presented, the market launch of which is targeted for 2021.

At the Geneva Motor Show, Tata will unveil four models, one of which will be the all-electric version of the upcoming Tata 45X Large Hatchback. Speaking about the electric vehicle, Shailesh Chandra, President – Electric Mobility Business & Corporate Strategy, Tata Motors, indicated that the model will be “closer to an exciting electric vehicle with the right (driving) range, very exciting for private consumers, and one that will inspire demand in the marketplace.”. The timeline for the introduction of the mass-produced electric car model in India could be much shorter than the previously assumed three to four years, and could arrive as soon as two years, according to Chandra.

While Chandra didn’t delve into the technical aspects of the car, he did address the EV’s range. He assumes that a range of 140 km is sufficient for 80 percent of private buyers. Some potential e-car drivers believe that a range of 200 km will be sufficient. Tata’s new electric cars can cover a range of up to 250 km on a single charge. “After discussions with customers and facilities, it was concluded that the optimal range is between 220 km and 250 km,” says Chandra. He also explains that from a technical point of view, a range of 300-400 km can be achieved without relying on a special platform. But then the price increases so much that it no longer makes sense.

Shailesh Chandra sees the use of e-vehicles more in fleets than in the private sector in the next few years. Nevertheless, one does not want to lose sight of this area. Launching in India in August 2019, the conventionally powered Tata 45X marks Tata Motor’s entry into the premium hatchback segment.
