After recently launching Mumbai’s first EV charging infrastructure, with nine charging stations across significant locations, Tata Power will expand to Hyderabad to encourage people to shift from vehicles run on fossil fuels to eco-friendly electric vehicles.

The two Tata group companies, Tata Power and Tata Motors, will jointly execute the consolidated e-mobility solution as part of Cognizant’s ‘Go Green’ programme for its employees in Hyderabad.

We are excited to be associating with Cognizant to provide them with a comprehensive solution towards the goal of a sustainable future, with our ‘One Tata’ approach, involving our other group companies. We will continue to strengthen our portfolio of EV offerings across our passenger and commercial vehicles, to meet future requirements.”
