Way back in September of 2008, Tata Motors confirmed that the rumors of an electric Indica Vista were true when they unveiled it to the media in India. Since then, Tata Motors has made significant progress developing the electric hatch. Even though the battery-powered Indica is often overshadowed by vehicles like the Nissan Leaf and Chevrolet Volt, it's no less of a breakthrough vehicle than its more publicized competitors.

The all-electric Indica Vista by Tata Motors has taken a large step forward with the naming of TM4 as its supplier of motors, controllers and power electronics. TM4 is a subsidiary of Hydro-Quebec and joins battery supplier Electrovaya as the second Canadian company involved with the project. Miljø Innovasjon, the Tata subsidiary charged with overseeing the demonstration program, will produce over 100 of the vehicles beginning this year.
