Default Tata Motors working on new EV platform, long-range battery

Tata Motors is setting up a separate electric mobility business headed by Shailesh Chandra, which will oversee the development of a dedicated electric vehicle (EV) platform. The new architecture will underpin Tata's future electric cars. The company is also working on electric and hybrid commercial vehicles (CV).

Tata Motors is planning to develop a long-range battery. The proposed 320-volt battery pack is expected to provide faster acceleration and a maximum range of over 300 km on a single charge. It will also have fast charging capability. The current Tigor EV and a possible Tiago-based EV could use the new battery in the future. The company's latest Alfa and Omega platforms have also been designed with electric powertrains in mind.

Full electric or hybrid options are likely to be offered on light commercial vehicles (LCV) like the Iris, Magic, Ace and Super Ace. The company is also focusing on fuel cell, pure-electric, diesel hybrid, CNG hybrid and diesel-parallel hybrid buses.

Its a welcome thing. But the above is a lot of things to be working on and getting distracted ? I hope they are doing more already than just focusing on in future.

Actually it makes sense, as for any Hybrid, you have to mate electric with fossil fuel. Think of it as similar to separate development of Engine and Gear Box. As long as they are compatible and can be matched, separate development helps.

In this case if Tatas develop electric battery and motor capability, and at the same time have viable fossil fuel (petrol, diesel, CNG etc) engine range, then they can mix and match the two to get what ever the client (or the environment) wants.
