Girish Wagh, President, CV Business Unit, Tata Motors says intra-city last-mile transport is expected to emerge as the next opportunity for EVs

Speaking to the media post the launch of the company's new Ultra Sleek T.Series trucks, Girish Wagh, President, Commercial Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors said, "With advancements in battery technology and falling battery prices, electrification will become economically viable in increased use cases within commercial passenger, as well as cargo applications. Catalysed by continued policy support, the adoption of EV buses in metros and large cities for public transportation is already gaining traction. In cargo application, the intra-city last-mile transport is expected to emerge as the next opportunity for EVs, as these use cases require moderate driving range within a defined geography. Tata Motors is engaging with progressive customers to develop an end-to-end EV solution, including charging infrastructure, for the last mile application."
