Home grown automotive manufacturer Tata Motors has announced the introduction of a new ‘XPRES’ brand for fleet customers only. Under the XPRES brand, the company introduces fleet-specific safety requirements, comfort for passengers and low ownership costs. The XPRES badges are all designed for vehicles in the fleet segment, distinctly distinctive from the increasing ‘New Forever’ portfolio of cars and SUVs that cater to personal segment requirements.
The first vehicle to be launched soon under XPRES brands will be the ‘XPRES-T’ EV electric sedan. In addition to safety and passenger comfort, XPRES-T EV is targeted at mobility services, corporate and government fleets and comes with a captive, rapid charging solution, which guarantees excellent low ownership costs as a comprehensive and attractive proposition for fleet owners and operators.
Announcing the launch of the XPRES brand, Mr. Shailesh Chandra, President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors said, “We are delighted to launch the Xpres brand which will introduce smarter, future-ready mobility solutions to cater the special needs of all fleet customers – government, corporates, and mobility services. Electric Vehicles deliver very low cost of ownership, with minimal maintenance, at the same time offer a very comfortable and pleasant drive. This makes them an ideal choice for intra-city mobility services.
Tata Motors, remains deeply committed to support the Government’s emphasis on green mobility. Currently, we have over 1,700 electric sedans successfully operating in the fleet segment. The launch of our forthcoming ‘XPRES-T’ EV Sedan, will create a new benchmark for urban shared mobility and will include a comprehensive captive charging solution provided by our partner, Tata Power. This will enable higher utilisation and increased income for our fleet customers.”

The EV sedan is equipped with two range options – 213km and 165km (ARAI certified range under test conditions).
