Tata Motors Incorporates EV Subsidiary Tata Passenger Electric Mobility

Auto major Tata Motors on Wednesday informed that the company has incorporated a wholly owned subsidiary, Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Limited, which will be involved in manufacturing of electric motor vehicles.

The Ministry of Corporate Affairs has issued the certificate of incorporation for the same on 21 December 2021.

The subsidiary has been incorporated to manufacture, design, develop all kinds of services related to electric vehicles (EV)/electric mobility, hybrid electric vehicles of all kinds and all descriptions for carrying passengers or other personnel.

Tata Motors, which will be the promotor of Tata Passenger Electric Mobility (TPEML), would hold 100% share capital in the EV unit. TPEML has been incorporated with the initial capital of Rs 7 bn, the Tata Group's auto unit announced in an exchange filing.

In October this year, Tata Motors had unveiled its plans to invest over US$2 bn in its EV business over the next five years after the Indian automaker announced it had raised funds from private equity firm TPG.

TPG's Rise Climate Fund and Abu Dhabi state holding company ADQ had agreed to invest about US$1 bn to expand the company's EV business for which it would form a separate unit, as informed by the auto manufacturer.

Tata Motors' share price ended the day up by 0.3% on the BSE.

Speaking of stocks, here's a pattern that if you see, you must sell your position. After all, exits are more important than entries.

In the chart below, we can see the head and shoulder pattern - the stock goes up, makes a high, falls a little bit, goes up to a higher high, does not make a higher low, rallies again fails to make a new high, and then starts to break down.

This usually happens in a situation where a stock or index has typically been in a bull trend for a while. Spotting this correctly can help you save money.
