Every day, India makes progress toward its low-carbon emission and better-environment targets by shifting to a more sustainable method of transportation. Tata Motors has established a partnership with Lithium Urban Technologies in support of these future-preserving initiatives. Tata plans to deploy 5,000 Tata Electric XPRES-T EVs around the country, with employee commuting as a priority. The Expres-T will be supplied in stages, with the final 5,000 units due in 2023.
