BlueSmart announced the most extensive EV Fleet of XPRES-T cars from Tata Motors would join its fleet, making it the largest EV order in the country. The latter bags an order of 10,000 EVs and solidifies its dominance in the EV market. BluSmart will accommodate these vehicles with the 3,500 XPRES-T EV order signed in October 2021. However, Tata Motors is yet to share a timeframe for the delivery.
TATA XPRES-T: The Tata XPRES-T is a compact electric sedan with two battery options: a 16.5kWh range of 165km (ARAI) and a 21.5kWh range of up to 213km (ARAI). The XPRES-T EV can charge from 0 to 80 percent in 90 minutes or 110 minutes, based on the battery size.
BluSmart provides all-electric taxi rides in and around Delhi. The whole idea behind adding EVs to the fleet is to help reduce the carbon footprint of commuters in the country. BluSmart plans to invest its Series A funding to expand rapidly across Delhi and other metropolitans.
The BluSmart co-founder, Anmol Jaggi, said, “With our USD 50 million in Series A fund raise, we are supercharged to rapidly expand across Delhi NCR and the metro cities. We are thankful to Tata Motors for charging up our journey to scale up at a fast pace.”
Shailesh Chandra, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Managing Director, commented on the agreement, saying, “Tata Motors is taking active steps towards the rapid electrification of mobility, and it is heartening to see renowned fleet aggregators joining the green mobility wave with us”.
