Wagh adds that the awareness of the EV’s has increased manifold across all verticals, and the last mile delivery segment is no exception.

The company, as per him, has studied the sector as much as possible and wants to deliver a solution, and not just a vehicle.

The launch of the vehicle is still months away, but Tata Motors, as expected, has already begun working with the end-users to gauge their needs.
