Tata Motors bags contract to provide 10,000 electric cars to EESL

Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) on Friday said that it will procure 10,000 electric vehicles from Tata Motors after the latter emerged as the lowest bidder in a competitive bidding process.

Tata Motors, Mahindra Mahindra (M M) and Japanese carmaker Nissan had all bid for the EESL contract to provide 10,000 electric vehicles over the next 12 months.

Tata Motors quoted the lowest price of Rs 10.16 lakh, exclusive of GST, in the bidding process. The vehicle will be provided to EESL for Rs 11.2 lakh, which will be inclusive of GST and a comprehensive 5-year warranty. At this price, the car will cost 25% less than the current retail price of a similar e-car with a 3-year warranty.

Welcoming the EESL initiative, Guenter Butschek, CEO MD, Tata Motors said: “Tata Motors is extremely proud to partner with the Government of India in its journey to facilitate faster adoption of electric vehicles and to build a sustainable India. Tata Motors has been collaboratively working to develop electric powertrain technology for its selected products. EESL tender provided us the opportunity to participate in boosting e-mobility in the country, at the same time accelerate our efforts to offer full range of electric vehicles to the Indian consumers.”

According to a Business Standard report, the first phase will see the delivery of 500 electric cars over a three-month period. The second phase will see 9,500 electric cars delivered in nine months.

The report said that the company selected to provide the cars to EESL will not have to spend on launches, advertisements or other promotional activities, thereby enabling bidders to bid lower than they would have done otherwise.

EESL is a joint venture between government entities National Thermal Power Corporation (NTPC), Power Grid, Power Finance Corporation, and Rural Electrification Corporation. It had floated the tender on August 15.

EESL aims to lease these electric cars to the various government departments. The first of the departments to get these cars would be the power ministry and the power public sector units in the National Capital Region (NCR).

The company, which comes under the Ministry of Power, further said along with procurement of 10,000 EVs through bidding, it would also identify a service provider agency.

“This agency, also appointed through competitive bidding, will carry out end-to-end fleet management of the procured vehicles for the concerned government customer,” the statement added.

Apart from continuing to aggregate demand, EESL will also be responsible such as coordination between appointed agencies, monitoring and supervision, reporting, complaint redressal and payments, it said.

Citing a Niti Aayog report, EESL said making India’s passenger mobility shared, electric, and connected can cut the country’s energy demand by 64 per cent and carbon emissions by 37 per cent in 2030.

“This would result in a reduction of 156 Mtoe (million tonne oil equivalent) in diesel and petrol consumption for that year at USD 52/bbl of crude, this would imply a net savings of roughly Rs 3.9 lakh crore in 2030,” the company said.

The government is pushing for manufacturing of electric vehicles to reduce dependence on oil imports and control vehicular pollution. Union Road Transport Minister Nitin Gadkari said early this month the government will ‘bulldoze’ the auto industry if it did not switch to cleaner vehicles.



Upcoming Tata Cars in India 2017 -Launch Date, Price, Images, tata cars.#Tata #cars


At least 8 New Tata Cars Coming to India By 2018

Tata Motors has witnessed a decline in sales in recent years due to quality niggles and the taxi market image. The Nano never really took off as expected and the Safari Storme failed to emulate its predecessor s success. The Aria MPV also flopped and Indica Vista and Manza have been witnessing dwindling sales. Tata has managed to recover slightly with the Tiago but there s still room for improvement. The manufacturer is now working on a slew of new launches including the Tiago-based compact sedan, a compact SUV and a lot more. Read on for details regarding all that upcoming Tata cars in India 2017, 2018.

Upcoming Tata Cars in India 2017

1. Tata Tiago Sport

Tata will not launch the Bolt Sport. Instead, it will launch a souped-up variant of the Tiago hatchback. Powering the Tata Tiago Sport will be a turbocharged 1.2-litre three cylinder engine. Max. power could be around 120 PS. We expect a price of Rs. 6-7 Lakhs. Tata Tiago Sport launch should happen by mid 2017.

2. Tata Tiago Aktiv

Tata also plans to launch the Tiago Aktiv. The Aktiv has been internally codenamed as the Tata Kite 4 and is a cross variant of the Tiago. It sports an accessory package that comprises of plastic body cladding, roof rails, sportier bumpers and some decals. The Aktiv could also get some more features. The Tiago Aktiv accessories are currently sold separately at the dealer level. However, Tata might start rolling out factory produced Tiago Aktiv variants since demand is good. Since the Aktiv will sport only cosmetic enhancements over the Tiago, it will remain mechanically unchanged.

3. Tata Nexon

Another new Tata that will be launched in 2017 is the Nexon compact SUV. With the Nexon s design, Tata has adopted a very different approach. The Nexon s biggest USP is its SUV-Coupe styling, which is nothing like anything we have seen in this segment so far. Even the cabin will be just as stylish. It will have features like a touchscreen audio system. Its styling will help set the Nexon apart from the current crop of compact SUVs. The Nexon will rival the Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, Mahindra NuvoSport, etc. And it highly likely that people will opt for the Nexon based purely on its striking design. There have been conflicting reports regarding the Tata Nexon launch date with some reporting an early 2017 launch and other claiming it will come us only in the second half of 2017.

Specifications are purely speculative

4. Tata Bolt Sport

Once the most interesting of all the Upcoming Tata Cars in India, the Bolt Sport might not make it to production. It features new bumpers, alloys and many sporty bits. This car has a 1.2 L Turbo Petrol engine. Tata Motors was supposed to be planning to attract the enthusiasts with the Bolt Sport. However, the Bolt has not been a very successful product. So, Tata chose not to launch the Bolt Sport.

Tata Cars at Auto Expo 2018

Tata X451 (Maruti Baleno rival)

Tata cars

At the 2018 Auto Expo, Tata is likely to showcase the X451, a premium hatchback that will rival the likes of Maruti Baleno. The X451 will be underpinned by the Advance Modular Platform and is likely to get 1.2-litre Petrol and Diesel motors. It s said that the new hatchback s design will have inputs coming from Jaguar Land Rover (JLR)! Not much is currently known about this car, but safely expect it to get a modern design and a spacious cabin. Looking at the recent Tata products, it should be fairly safe to predict high fit-and-finish levels. This should be one of the most important Tata cars at Auto Expo 2018.

Tata Q501 (Tata-Land Rover SUV)

Tata cars

Another important upcoming Tata car that could debut at the Auto Expo 2018 is the Q501 (Tata Land Rover SUV). While the launch of the Tata Land Rover SUV is likely to happen only in the second-half of next year, it will definitely become the most premium Tata product ever. Expect it to come with a 2.0-litre Fiat-sourced Multijet Diesel engine and 4 4. Prices could start at Rs 22 lakh and the new model will go on to rival the likes of Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour.

Tata Q502

Tata cars

Tata Motors is also likely to showcase the Q502 at the 2018 Auto Expo. The Q502 is basically a smaller, five-seater version of the Q501. The Q502 will be positioned slightly above the Hexa and will rival the likes of Hyundai Tucson. It will look a lot like the Q501, but will have smaller dimensions. Akin to the Q502, it will be underpinned by the Land Rover Discovery platform. We re hoping the Q502 gets the excellent Land Rover Terrain Response system. The Q502, much like the Q501, will become one of the major attractions at Tata stalls in the 2018 Delhi motor show.

New Tata sedan (Maruti Ciaz rival)

Tata cars

Expected to launch only by 2019, the next motor show in Delhi could see the debut of an all-new Tata sedan that will ultimately go on to rival the Maruti Ciaz. In all probability, Tata Motors will showcase a pre-production version of its upcoming sedan at the Auto Expo 2018. Akin to the upcoming premium hatchback, even this sedan will be based on Tata s Advance Modular Platform. Many styling elements could be shared with the Nexon compact SUV. The new model is expected to debut with all-new 1.5-litre Diesel and 1.2-litre Turbo petrol engines.

Tata Tigor Electric

Tata cars

Tata Motors has bagged an order to supply as many as 10,000 units of the Tigor Electric Vehicle to the Government of India. The price of the Tigor EV is Rs 10.16 lakh (excluding GST). Of course, there will be a different price once the car s market launch takes place. The Tigor shares its 85 kW motor with the Tiago EV. This electric motor outputs a peak torque of 200 Nm and has a range of approx 100 kmph. The car has a top speed of 135 kmph and can go from 0 to 100 kmph in less than 11 seconds.

Tata Tiago Electric

Tata cars

Another interesting model among the Tata cars at Auto Expo 2018 will be the Tiago electric. Basically an all-electric version of the Tiago hatchback, the upcoming Tata car could actually go on sale by 2019. Expect this EV to cost roughly Rs 7 lakh (ex-showroom) when it goes on sale in near future.

Tata TaMo Racemo

Tata cars

Tata Tamo C Cube

Tata cars

Tata might even showcase the C-Cube at the Auto Expo 2018. The Tamo C-Cube made its debut at the 2017 Future Decoded event in Mumbai. From the looks of it, this vehicle shares its underpinnings with the Tiago. It looks really modern and gets many Microsoft-enabled functionalities. It s not sure if this model will ever make it to the market, but in case it does, don t expect the launch to happen before 2020.

World’s Cheapest New Car, Tata Nano, Gets Diesel Option

2012 Tata Nano

Diesel may be taking a while to catch on in the U.S, but in India the diesel market has exploded in recent years.

It’s no surprise that automakers have been making the most of this, and the latest to do so is Tata, whose Nano–the world’s cheapest new car–is soon to get its own diesel option.

According to CarDekho (via Autoblog ), the car will make its official debut at the 2014 Indian Auto Expo and could hit Indian roads as soon as February.

For Tata, it can’t be too soon.

Sales of the Nano, despite its incredibly low pricing, have been disappointing. It’s thought that the bargain-basement nature of the car–necessitated by pricing that begins at just $2,400 for the cheapest model–is actually off-putting to aspirational Indian buyers, who prefer to spend a little more and not drive around in a car seen merely as a stepping-stone from a scooter.

While pricing of the diesel has not yet been announced, the real benefit for Indian buyers will be in fuel costs.

At current exchange rates, one gallon of gasoline costs as much as $4.72 in India. But diesel costs just $3.62 per gallon, making diesel cars significantly cheaper to fuel.

Throw in expected economy of up to 94 mpg on local test cycles–a standard gasoline Nano gets 59 mpg–and the difference becomes even greater.

However, the Nano’s diesel won’t be quite as sophisticated as the units we’re getting used to in the U.S.

For one, it has half the cylinders we’ve come to expect of typical diesels. Actually, that’s not strictly true–Volkswagen’s XL1 also features a twin-cylinder diesel. and the Nano shares its capacity too at 800cc. The Nano even has a tiny turbocharger to help it to a predicted 45 horsepower, seven more than the gasoline variant.

Performance will be leisurely, though the importance of high speeds on India’s roads–crowded, dangerous and frequently populated by everything from pedestrians to sacred animals–is questionable.

And we’re not so sure about its emissions, either. While the Nano will certainly do well with regards to reducing fuel use, we suspect there’s a limit to just how clean its little engine can be when powering such basic, inexpensive transport. High-tech emissions-reducing equipment costs a whole lot of money.

It’s instrumental of the push towards more fuel-efficient engines though, and illustrative of what can be achieved when really paring back weight and downsizing power units.

Not that downsizing is the only plan–Tata is also said to be planning Nano hatchback and sedan variants, powered by Fiat-sourced units with up to 100 horsepower.

Those may finally be the cars to appeal to more image-led Indian buyers–though the Nano diesel will undoubtedly remain the economy champion in the range.

Tata Motors Limited is India’s largest automobile company, with consolidated revenues of Rs 2, 32,834 crores (USD 38.9 billion) in 2013-14. It is the leader in commercial vehicles in each segment, and among the top in passenger vehicles with winning products in the compact, midsize car and utility vehicle segments. It is also the world’s fifth largest truck manufacturer and fourth largest bus manufacturer.

Formerly known as Telco (TATA Engineering and Locomotive Company), the company was established in 1935 as a locomotive manufacturing unit and later expanded its operations to commercial vehicle sector in 1954 after forming a joint venture with Daimler-Benz AG of Germany. Currently headed by the chairman, Mr. Cyrus Mistry, Tata Motors claimed its success in the building commercial vehicles. Despite the success of its commercial vehicles, Mr Ratan Tata the then Chairman realised his company had to diversify and he began to look at other products. Based on consumer demand, he decided that building a small car would be the most practical new venture. So in 1998 it launched Tata Indica, India’s first fully indigenous passenger car. Though the Indica did not do so well, the V2 version of the car won accolades for its design and the kind of engine used.

The Indica was an instant hit and soon the company was exporting its car to Europe, especially the UK and Italy. In 2004 the company acquired Tata Daewoo Commercial Vehicle, and in late 2005 it acquired 21% of Aragonese Hispano Carrocera giving it controlling rights of the company. The company’s manufacturing base in India is spread across Jamshedpur (Jharkhand), Pune (Maharashtra), Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh), Pantnagar (Uttarakhand) and Dharwad (Karnataka). Tata Motors set up an alliance with Fiat in 2005 only to be cancelled in the next few years. The alliance brought about an industrial joint venture with Fiat Group Automobiles at Ranjangaon (Maharashtra) to produce both Fiat and Tata cars’ powertrains. Tata’s dream project, the Nano had some difficulties taking off as it had to be shifted from Singur in West Bengal to Sanand in Gujarat.

Beside India, in 2006, Tata Motors formed a joint venture with the Brazil-based Marcopolo, a global leader in body-building for buses and coaches to manufacture fully-built buses and coaches for India and select international markets. In 2006, Tata Motors entered into joint venture with Thonburi Automotive Assembly Plant Company of Thailand to manufacture and market the company’s pick-up vehicles in Thailand. The new plant of Tata Motors (Thailand) has begun production of the Xenon pick-up truck. The Xenon pick-up truck was launched in 2008. The company’s commercial and passenger vehicles are already being marketed in several countries in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, South East Asia, South Asia and South America. It also conducts its operations in Kenya, Bangladesh, Ukraine, Russia, Senegal and South Africa. The company today has R
