The IAF has inducted 12 Tata Nexon EVs into its fleet

Air Chief Marshal VR Chaudhary The Indian Air Force has flagged off its newly procured batch of 12 Tata Nexon EV sub-compact EV SUVs. The air-based defense wing of the Indian Armed Forces is looking to convert a portion of their current ICE-based fleet to EVs in the near future. This plan includes buses and cars operated under the IAF.

The IAF aims to reduce its carbon footprint and adopt sustainable mobility solutions such as EVs. This comes at a time when the Indian government is moving to encourage people to shift towards more sustainable and eco-friendly mobility options. The IAF also plans to back up the transition from ICE to electric by setting up charging infrastructure at various IAF bases. Collection of new EVs will be phased in with some select outfits being upgraded first. 25 percent of light vehicles, 38 percent of buses and 48 percent of motorcycles will be replaced by EVs in select units.

At present, 12 Tata Nexon EVs are on duty in the capital city and operate from their home depot at Vayu Bhawan, the IAF’s Delhi headquarters.
