While I appreciate the thinking to Go-Green, the intent is misplaced. Carbon footprint of producing steel is far greater than carbon footprint of transporting some officials around Jamshedpur. Some people may say- "They at least tried... ," but this is just an exercise of dumping the unsold (or rather un-salable) experimental Tigors EVs.

India is not the USA. Transportation is not the biggest pie of emissions in most areas.

Usually internal testing is done before the product is launched, but here tata is doing it the other way around
