What Is Tata Motors Gen-2 EV Platform?

After achieving tremendous success with their gen-1 EVs, Tata Motors decided to go ahead with the R&D investments for the gen-2 EV platform. This time around, instead of starting with an internal combustion engine platform and transforming it into an EV, Tata decided to develop the platform for dual-compatibility from day 1. This means, there are no modifications required to the platform to make it EV compatible.
