Tata Motors will supply its Tigor all-electric compact sedan to Cognizant, a leading professional services, for use in the IT firms’ Hyderabad campus. The Indian carmaker has tied up with leading mobility solutions company Volercars, who will take care of ground operations and fleet management for the IT brand. The first batch of 10 Tata Tigor EVs was delivered yesterday to officials at an event held at Cognizant’s Hyderabad campus.
Tata Motors will collaborate with other Tata Group companies to provide a consolidated solution with respect to vehicles, charging infrastructure, maintenance services and financial assistance for procurement and functioning of the Tigor EVs as part of the carmaker’s One Tata solution for EVs. The plan will also see Tata Power install two fast charging stations at the Hyderabad campus of Cognizant, while Tata Motors Finance will provide the financial assistance needed to procure the vehicles.
Tata Power was the first company to install public EV charging stations in Mumbai and will also set-up an EV charging station in Hyderabad. This will mark its first such unit outside of Mumbai.
Commenting on the deployment of Tigor EVs, Shailesh Chandra, president – Electric Mobility Business and Corporate Strategy, Tata Motors said, “We are excited to be associating with Cognizant to provide them with a comprehensive solution towards the goal of a sustainable future, with our ‘One Tata’ approach, involving our other group companies. We will continue to strengthen our portfolio of EV offerings across our passenger and commercial vehicles, to meet future requirements.”
Ramkumar Ramamoorthy, executive director, India, Cognizant, said, “At Cognizant, reducing our carbon footprint through efficient use of energy and protecting vital, irreplaceable resources are at the heart of our environmental stewardship initiatives. We are proud to lead by example and be one of the first companies in India to embrace the potential of electric vehicles as an innovative meeting ground of energy and mobility.”
Praveer Sinha, CEO and managing director, Tata Power said, “With the deployment of the fast charging EV stations in Hyderabad, we are happy to make the city more conducive towards a pollution free environment. This is in line with our endeavor to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles across the country by providing the much-needed mobility infrastructure to support EV growth.”
