As a part of Government's initial move towards electric mobility, the order for Tigor EV sedans have been made by the Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL), an entity under the Ministry of Power. The company has not divulged specifications of the Tigor EV yet.
Earlier this year, Tata Motors beat Mahindra to bag the tender to deliver 10,000 electric vehicles (EVs) floated by EESL by submitting the lowest bid of Rs 11.2 lakh per vehicle. However, Mahindra, which matched the prices of Tata, also got selected to supply 150 EVs in the first phase.

The electric drive systems for this order have been developed and supplied by Electra EV - a company established to develop and supply electric drive systems for the automotive sector, the company said in a statement. "I congratulate the entire Tata Motors team for this commendable achievement and wish them the best as they go forward on this journey". This means the Indian manufacturer has to deliver only 250 vehicles till the LoA for rest 100 units is not issued, which is expected to be received in the near future.
Tata Motors is committed to the Government's vision for electric vehicles by 2030 and will work in a collaborative manner to facilitate faster adoption of electric vehicles and to build a sustainable future for India. "This tender (EESL) has effectively paved way for connecting our aspirations in the e-mobility space with the vision of the government", he added.
