This will ensure outstandingly low cost of ownership in addition to safety and passenger comfort making it a comprehensive and attractive proposition for fleet owners and operators.

The electric vehicle can also be normally charged from any 15A plug point, which is convenient and easily available. It comes with zero tail-pipe emission, single-speed automatic transmission, dual airbags, ABS with EBD as standard across variants. The premium black theme interior with standard automatic climate control and Electric Blue accents across its interior and exterior will give it a differentiated presence from other Tata cars.
Announcing the launch of the XPRES brand, Mr. Shailesh Chandra, President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors, said:
We are delighted to launch the XPRES brand which will introduce smarter, future-ready mobility solutions to cater for the special needs of all fleet customers – government, corporates, and mobility services. Electric Vehicles deliver a very low cost of ownership, with minimal maintenance, at the same time offer a very comfortable and pleasant drive. This makes them an ideal choice for intra-city mobility services.
