A decade ago, Tata Motor showcased the Tata Nano EV concept at the 2010 Geneva Motorshow. While the I.C engine powered Nano has been discontinued almost two years ago, could Tata bring the Nano nomenclature back in its product line up in the EV form? We don’t know. But another decades-old Tata SUV has been revied, but this time, in an EV form.
At the Auto Expo 2020, Tata’s pavilion showcased the Sierra concept. Tata Motors confirmed its plans to bring back the ‘Sierra’ name tag after two dedaces. The new Sierra is still in the concept stage and Tata Motors is yet to reveal the specs of its electric powertrain.
"In India, EV penetration in our portfolio has now doubled to 2 per cent this year and we expect penetration to increase exponentially in the coming years. Tata Motors will lead this change in the Indian market. By 2025, Tata Motors will have 10 new BEV vehicles and as a Group, we will invest proactively to set up charging infrastructure across the country.” said N Chandrasekaran.
