Recently, Tata Motors delivered 65 units of Tata Nexon EV to the Motor Vehicle Department (MVD) of the Kerala Government. The step has been taken under the ‘Safe Kerala’ program.
Incorporating electric vehicles will reduce emissions as well as cut fuel costs spent on conventional ICE cars. One of the officials said a fleet of 65 electric cars would strengthen the ‘Safe Kerala’ program and will also regulate traffic pollution in the state.
According to a source, Kerala MVD leased Nexon EVs for a period of eight years from Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL) through the Agency for New and Renewable Energy Research and Technology (ANERT).
Shailesh Chandra, President – Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors, said “We are indeed proud that the Nexon EV is their preferred choice for the ‘Safe Kerala’ special project on road safety.“
He also said that Tata Nexon EV has emerged as one of the best selling electric cars in the country. We hope the electric SUV will continue to lead the segment in the future as well.
