State-owned CESL on Tuesday said it will procure 300 electric vehicles from Tata Motors. The procurement is a part of the Scaling up Demand-Side Energy Efficiency Sector Project financed by the Asian Development Bank’s line of credit to CESL, according to a statement.
“Convergence Energy Services Limited (CESL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) placed a Letter of Award in favour of Tata Motors for the procurement of 300 electric cars with 3 years of warranty.
“This will consist of 300 four-wheeler electric cars (whose length is less than 4 meters) and range equal to or more than 250 KMs,” a CESL statement said.
CESL will work with Tata Motors to deploy these vehicles to the government entities looking to change over to electric vehicles, it added.
“Electric vehicles are the future. I am so pleased that more and more Government entities in India are switching over to electric transport.
