Chennai-based Murugappa Group is all set to enter the EV space with a newly created unit that will be known as TI Electric under the cycle joint venture of group company, Tube Investments India (TII), Murugappa. TI Electric will reportedly enter electric three-wheelers, tractors and other formats. The standalone Rs 5,600-crore TII will target both the passenger and commercial EV segments with its new project. This is the second time the Murugappa Group is foraying into the EV segment.

The market launch of TI Electric is expected between August-September 2022. Murugappa Group has reportedly acquired 70 per cent stake in Celestial E-Mobility for Rs 161 crore for its e-tractor business. The plant for the e-tractor was set up in Hyderabad and currently offers 27, 35 and 55 HP e-tractors with advanced features like wireless steering, friction less braking, among others.
