A Tata Safari was seen being driven around with green no plates around in Jodhpur Rajasthan. The car was in a tip top shape and hence considering it to be a full fleged EV would be jumping to a conclusion. After a bit of searching the number plate across multiple vehicle databases, it was revealed that it still showed as XZA+ variant with 2.0L Kryotec BS6 engine. But the number plate is green, which indicates that it is an EV. So why is a Tata Safari that is registered as a diesel on the RTO database, wearing a green no plate? Here are some explanations for this confusing spy shot of Tata Safari Electric.
As we know Tata Safari is delivered with a As we all know, Tata Safari only gets a 2.0L Kryotec diesel engine sourced from Stellantis (formerly, Fiat-Chrysler) that makes 168 bhp and 350 Nm. Tata Motors has been testing the Safari with a petrol engine too and on the test mule, you will see a red number plate. It’s because in India, every single test mule, EV or not, is given a red number plate. Only the finalised product that is sold for private use, get the usual number plates from RTO. White board with black font indicates a PV (passenger vehicle), yellow board with black font indicates LCV (light commercial vehicle) and HCV (heavy commercial vehicle). Whereas a black board with yellow font indicates self-driven rental vehicles.
The vehicles with green no plates and raised white lettering denote privately owned electric vehicles.But if Tata never launched a electric Safari how is this possible , and how come no body is questioning a green no plate on a safari. The no plate does not seem fake at all.
As according to a media report by Rush lane this is a creation of some ingenious company which Is developing EV conversion kits for cars and the cars are being tested to figure out the challenges as well as problems with the new design
