Tata Motors will soon commence its Rs. 160 crore electric car project in Norway and other Scandinavian markets. The project involves assembling the car in Norway from semi-knocked down kits imported from India. The company is confident that the project will turn profitable within four years of start of production. However, there is no plan to introduce the electric variant in India. However if volumes are decent, the Vista electric could see the light in our country too.
The Indica Vista EV is powered by lithium-ion batteries which helps it to be faster and peppier than its petrol and diesel variants available in India. The car will have a top speed of 151kmph thanks to a maximum power of 74bhp at 4000 rpm and 190Nm of torque. The Indica Vista Electric Vehicle has been designed and developed by Tata Motors’ UK subsidiary, Tata Motors European Technical Centre.
