Tata Motors has turned to its Indica platform for the development of its electric car. According to industry sources, the company is currently working on five prototypes of electric vehicles.
“These will use lithium ion batteries for high energy and power density,”
The electric car would have an approximate range of 200 kilometres.
At Tata Motors’ annual general meeting this week chairman Ratan Tata told shareholders about an electric car partnership project with Norway, with the car to launch in Norway within the next 12 months, according to Swedish weekly Ny Teknik, and India afterward. Calcutta Telegraph said Tata will use its Indica platform for the development of its electric car, not the no-frills, $2,500 Nano, which is scheduled to start rolling off production lines in September. Tata is currently working on five prototypes of electric vehicles, the Telegraph said, with lithium-ion batteries and an approximate range of 200 kilometers. Indica is a full-size highway-ready car, but Tata hasn’t said whether the Indica-based EV will also be full-sized or an NEV (neighborhood electric vehicle), or given price signals.
And for you ( I found this video realy romantic) It’s a comercial for a conventional car, not electric, though.
