Tata Motors were one of the early pioneers in building a strong base for electric vehicles in India. Back in July’ 19, they launched the electric version of their sedan – Tigor. The Tigor EV is Tata’s first electric car and in a way, will provide direction for all the upcoming Electric Vehicles of Tata. Launched at a starting price of 9,54,175 (ex-showroom in Delhi, above 10 lakhs in other parts of India), Tata Motors has ensured that even the common mass will be able to afford it.
TATA Tigor EV Features & Specifications
The Tigor EV utilises a 72V 3 phase AC induction motor. The ARAI claimed the range of the Tigor EV is 213km. It’s battery supports fast-charging and is capable of charging from 0-80 percent in about two hours. However, it takes about 11.5 hours to fully charge the battery.
The Tigor EV is not a feature-rich and it is quite understandable given the price it has been launched at. We need to understand that a significant amount is spent towards battery pack in Electric vehicles and Tata has done a brilliant job in squeezing the price to what it is.
Tigor’s range of 213 km/ full charge is good for day to day city use but is not a vehicle for long range driving owing to the lack of EV charging infrastructure at present.
That said, some of the features of the sedan are listed below:
- ABS with Electronic Brake-force Distribution to optimize braking distance and to ensure vehicle safety on corners
- Dual Airbags
- A high density of 21.5 kWh battery
- Multi-drive mode: Eco and Sport
- Rear parking sensors
and other essential features that can make the Tigor EV a default choice for every household.
The Tata Tigor EV has been launched in three variants: XE+, XM+, and XT+
The Tata Tigor EV features come in two color options: Pearlescent White and Egyptian Blue.
