Tata Motors has signed an MoU with Uber to deliver 25,000 XPRES–T EVs for Uber’s premium category service.

Offering customers our environmentally friendly EV ride experiences via Uber’s Premium Category service will accelerate the adoption of green and clean personal ride-sharing. The XPRES-T EV is a very attractive option both for customers and operators.

This partnership will further cement our market position in the fleet segment.”
