The Tigor EVs will be part of Cognizant’s efforts towards a sustainable environment. Tata Motors in partnership with Volercars will deliver an integrated solution for the campus for ground operations & fleet management. 10 Tata Tigor EV units were handed over.
Under the ‘One Tata’ aegis, the company will work with other Tata Group entities to make available integrated solutions in regards to vehicles, charging infrastructure, maintenance services and financial assistance to ensure sustainable functionality in an environment where electric vehicles still don’t have the support required.
Tata Power will supply and install two fast charging stations at Cognizant Hyderabad campus. Tata Power has already set-up public EV charging stations in Mumbai, and is working towards a customer mindset shift away from fossil fuel. The chargers in Hyderabad make it the second city where Tata is installing EV chargers.
Shailesh Chandra, President –Electric Mobility Business and Corporate Strategy, Tata Motors said, “We at Tata Motors, are extremely committed to the Government’s vision of e-mobility in India. We are excited to be associating with Cognizant to provide them with a comprehensive solution towards the goal of a sustainable future, with our ‘One Tata’ approach, involving our other group companies. We will continue to strengthen our portfolio of EV offerings across our passenger and commercial vehicles, to meet future requirements.”
Ramkumar Ramamoorthy, Executive Director, India, Cognizant, said, “At Cognizant, reducing our carbon footprint through efficient use of energy and protecting vital, irreplaceable resources are at the heart of our environmental stewardship initiatives. We are proud to lead by example and be one of the first companies in India to embrace the potential of electric vehicles as an innovative meeting ground of energy and mobility.”
Praveer Sinha, CEO & Managing Director, Tata Power said, “With the deployment of the fast charging EV stations in Hyderabad we are happy to make the city more conducive towards a pollution free environment. This is in line with our endeavor to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles across the country by providing the much-needed mobility infrastructure to support EV growth.”
