Homegrown auto major Tata Motors is banking on the order to supply electric cars to the government to accelerate its programme to offer full range of electric vehicles in the Indian market, according to company's CEO and MD Guenter Butschek.
Last month state-run Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) had announced that Tata Motors had bagged orders to supply 10,000 EVs in two phases but later stated that Mahindra and Mahindra has matched the rival's lowest bid price.
EESL said all 10,000 e-cars would be procured in two phases with 500 to be procured in phase-I and 9,500 vehicles to be ordered post phase-I deliveries.
"It will help us accelerate our efforts to offer full range of electric vehicles to the Indian consumers," Butschek told
