The Tata Nano EV is a four-seater and has a predicted range of up to 160 km and an acceleration of 0-60 kmph, in less than 10 seconds. It is powered by super polymer lithium-ion batteries. As per Tata Motors, “The Tata Nano EV offers the practicality of a real car, compromising nothing in the pursuit of providing environment-friendly personal transportation for the modern consumer.”

Meanwhile, Electra EV, the Ratan Tata-founded firm that offers EV powertrain solutions to Tata Motors and various other automakers, envisages doubling its turnover every financial year on the back of strong order books. The firm had clocked ₹115 crore in the financial year ended March 2020. The company had seen a 10-fold jump in demand. Until last August, Electra was making 100-150 EV kits a month; this has now been ramped up to 1,000 units.
