Tata Motors announced a new standalone EV subsidiary known as Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Limited (TPEML) and it will be responsible for launching future electric vehicles. With an investment of ₹ 15,000 crores over the next four years, Tata is focused on launching as many as ten new electric vehicles in India. TPEML will utilize three platforms to obtain its lineup of passenger EVs-
Conventional ICE platform- The brand is nowadays the best-selling EV maker courtesy of the Nexon EV and Tigor EV. They are both based on X1 and X0 ICE platforms respectively modified to suit the battery packs and necessary internals, and the same formula will continue.
Bespoke EV architecture- Tata is designing an EV architecture known as Sigma and is based on the ALFA debuted in the Altroz. The laboriously modified platform has its transmission tunnel removed, fuel tank area altered and side members revised to bring forth a flat floor that will liberate space for a large battery pack. It will underpin the forthcoming Sierra EV and several future electric vehicle models from TPEML.
Dedicated skateboard platform- A skateboard pure BEV platform is specifically developed for EVs from scratch and thus engineers will have more freedom to work on interior space, overall weight, design, and efficiency.
