Purposeful collaboration amongst stakeholders is key to accelerate the mass adoption of environmentally friendly solutions. As the leader in the rapidly growing Electric Mobility space, we remain focused on ramping up the access and use of EVs across India,” said Shailesh Chandra, President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors.
