Tata to use JLR’s 800V EMA platform

Tata Passenger Electric Mobility (TPEM) and Jaguar Land Rover (JLR), both wholly owned subsidiaries of Tata Motors Limited (TML), have signed an agreement to this effect. It will first be used in the Avinya - which, as it turns out, will not remain a single EV, but become a "Premium Pure Electric" vehicle series.

The Indian car manufacturer Tata will use JLR’s 800-volt Electrified Modular Architecture (EMA) platform for its future Avinya series of electric cars. Tata presented the Avinya Concept last year, which will go into series production in 2025. At the time, it was said that the Avinya would be based on the Tata Pure EV platform. But that was before the licence agreement concluded with JLR.

“TPEM have decided to use the technology that we’re developing both in terms of the EMA architecture, our electrical architecture and our battery packs to produce their own range of premium BEV vehicles at their plant in India. So it’s them producing their vehicles [using] our intellectual property,” JLR CEO Adrian Mardell today told British Autocar.

According to earlier information, the EMA platform for the next generation of all-electric mid-size SUVs from JLR, which will launch from 2025, uses 800-volt technology. Tata also mentions cell-to-pack battery technology in its latest announcement.

Autocar also reports that the batteries for the platform will come from Tata’s UK plant in Bridgewater, scheduled to kick off production in 2026.

Moreover, in the announcement, Tata says it will not just launch a single model under the name Avinya but an entire “Premium Pure Electric” vehicle series.

“Avinya stands for ‘Innovation’ and represents our vision for a new paradigm in personal mobility,” says Anand Kulkarni, Chief Product Officer and Head HV Programmes, TPEM. “Being built on an architecture that is equipped with the latest advances in new age technology, software and artificial intelligence, Avinya will spawn a new breed of world class EVs, with global standards in efficiency and range. We are delighted to collaborate on the EMA platform with JLR for actualizing this vision”.
