I do not believe deliveries will start unless the chargers are installed. They have mentioned in the email they sent that installation of the charger is a pre-requisite for the delivery.

By any chance, could you get the pic of the charger that was installed and the dimensions?

I got informed that my vehicle has been allotted and delivery is by 17th March. Hopefully, the lease provider does everything by then. I am yet to hear anything about charger though. Since the onboard charger is 3KW, what is the necessity of a home charger, why not stick it to a regular 16A or 32A plug.

I got a call from the dealer today that the cars will be delivered by the end of this month here in Vizag.



Regarding installation of home charger, TATA Power guy did the inspection and called back saying that the cost would be Rs. 5,500/- but didn't revert when I asked him to give an official quote with the BoM.

Very good explanation about problems with charging day in and day out on a portable charger.

XZ+, the mid one. Wasn't interested in paying 1L more for leather seats and sunroof.

The Tesla's catching fire is very less compared to the ICE engine fires even as a percentage wise. Just like we are apprehensive of new technology the media reports mostly of Tesla fires and ignores the ICE fires until they are lot many like in the case of BMW.

Just checked the page for car fires in team bhp and already 2 cases were reported in March month, along with a death in one case. How many such fire cases our members not recorded?

Tata should have taken care of fire aspects in this EV just like they do with their ICE cars.

In other countries what I have seen the fire department requests the company to give a demo to fire fighters on how to handle EV fires. It's the fire department which should be asking these videos, or should be included in the homologation process.

In case of Tesla, they mark the high voltage lines(thick orange wires) with some mark where the fire department needs to cut in case of fire and extinguish the fire.

Looks good. The connector wire needs to be plugged in everytime I guess from what it looks.

It's a customised Legrand 9 module distribution box with an RCBO and a 16amp domestic socket & switch. The charger can be plugged in and the door can be closed, note the cutout for cable below the socket.
Ziptron badging is there on the door.

Where is the charger? We need to trickle charge?

If yes then should have given space for the charger inside the box instead of hanging in the open, am I missing something?

Charger is a 3kw portable charger (slightly bigger than laptop charger).
Since it is portable one, you need to keep it in the car ( they are providing a bag for that.

Check this YouTube video from 16.00 onwards to understand how the charger will look like:



Plug it in the wall socket, just like you charge the laptop.
The installation is for the power outlet, not charger - hope clarified.
Seperate wiring required considering the constant current rating and safety of wiring.
