Many people might be wondering why the Tata Curvv EV is coming out first. Well, the answer to this question is Tata Motors’ strategy. The company is aiming to secure a first-mover advantage in the fiercely competitive midsize SUV segment.

Tata Motors is following the same successful strategy that helped it with the Nexon EV and Punch EV. We have already seen that this approach has helped Tata Motors in making the above-mentioned cars phenomenal successes in India. The company, with the Curvv EVs’ first rollout, will also gain an advantage over the Maruti Suzuki eVX, its Toyota counterpart, and the Hyundai Creta EV.

Reasons behind this delay
