Need For EVs:
Electric Vehicles made a revolutionary change in the automobile industry and this change led to the manufacture of even more brands and many more companies involving in the production of electric vehicles. The situation of the earth today is even worse than what we are actually thinking of. CO2 emission everywhere, toxic gases, noise pollution, what not. How to get rid of this? How we are going to get back our planet? What we are going to do from our side? Even a small step from an individual is a giant leap towards the change. “You should be the change that you wish to see everywhere.” Switching over to Electric Vehicles is one of the ideal solutions for getting rid of these environmental issues.

While all the leading car manufacturers entering into the EV industry, what about Tata Motors? Undoubtedly, Tata is here to give something special from its side.

This electric car resembles more like a Nano, something just like another cutest car, released in its electric version. The average range of Jayem Neo is expected around 200 kms and the charging time in slow charging will be around 6 to 7 hours. In DC to DC fast charging mode, the car is about to reach 60% in just half an hour. Unfortunately, this electric variant is not for official sale.
