The rest of the product portfolio will run on gasoline but with a high mix of fuel-efficient engines. The automaker currently dominates the Indian electric car market with nearly 85% market share.

Speaking about the automaker’s projected model-matching strategy by 2030, Tata Motors Passenger and Electric Vehicle CEO Shailesh Chandra said the mix ratio would be around 25- 30% for CNG, 25-30% for electric vehicles and the rest will be gasoline. “If we have to look at the end of the decade, the mix will be around 25-30% for CNG, 25-30% for EV and the rest will be gasoline, but with a high blend ratio of flexible fuels. because that’s the direction things are going,” Chandra said.

Tata Motors, like many other car brands in India, is consciously moving away from diesel models. A major reason behind this is the increasing cost of producing diesel vehicles due to tightening emissions standards, which ultimately make diesel vehicles significantly more expensive than petrol engines. . With that in mind, Chandra believes the diesel car market share will drop significantly to less than 5% by the end of the decade.

Meanwhile, speaking of the car brand’s move to the second phase of BS 6 emissions norms, Chandra said that the company was on track and ahead of schedule. The stringent emissions norms that take the BS 6 standard to the next level will come into effect from 1 April this year. The report claims that Tata Motors will have to take a fresh look at the demand situation following the implementation of BS 6 Phase 2 emissions norms, with vehicle prices expected to increase due to the implementation of the new management mechanism. “In terms of action, we are open to taking very focused demand-generating initiatives, specifically in certain segments as well as hypermarkets,” Chandra noted.
