Home-grown automaker Tata Motors on Friday signed an MoU with BluSmart Mobility to supply 3,500 XPRES T EVs to expand its all-electric fleet across Delhi NCR.
Available in two trim options, the electric car is equipped with a high energy density battery of 21.5 kWh and 16.5 kWh giving it range options of 213km and 165km (ARAI certified range under test conditions), respectively.
The vehicle can be charged from zero to 80% in 90 minutes and 110 minutes for 16.5 kWh and 21.5 kWh, respectively, through fast charging, or it may be charged conventionally from any 15 A plug point.
Ramesh Dorairajan, Head – Electric Vehicles (Commercial), Tata Motors, said, “With the XPRES- T EV, Tata Motors has developed an electric sedan exclusively for the fleet customers. We are delighted to partner with BluSmart Mobility and we are thankful to them for their continued efforts in growing the electric fleet in Delhi-NCR.”
With over 70% market share (YTD FY22), the automaker has crossed the 1,000 unit volumes of the EV in September 2021.
Anmol Singh Jaggi, Founder & CEO, BluSmart Mobility, said, “With our recent Series A funding of $ 25 million, we at BluSmart Mobility are well capitalised and expanding steadily into the Delhi NCR market. This partnership with Tata Motors reinforces our belief in our electric journey and gears us well to achieve bigger scales at a much faster pace.”
The all-electric ride-hailing service claims to have more than 250,000 app downloads and has done 700,000 rides to date, covering over 22 million clean kilometres.
