Tata Nepal has launched its much-awaited electric hatchback–the Tiago EV–at the 2023 NADA Auto Show, which runs until 17 September. The new Tiago EV is available in four variants: XE, XT, XZ+, and XZ+ Tech Lux, and it comes with two battery pack options: 19.2 kWh and 24 kWh. The company has introduced the electric hatchback with a starting price of Rs 21.99 lakh.
The Tiago EV adopts the design elements from the facelifted Tiago model powered by an internal combustion engine (ICE). Nevertheless, the electric vehicle showcases a revised front grille sporting an EV emblem, which extends to the projector headlamps equipped with daytime running lights (DRLs). The EV also boasts a two-tone roof and incorporates blue accents throughout its body. Furthermore, the car is offered in four different colours: Teal Blue, Daytona Grey, Midnight Plum and Tropical Mist.
For the interior, the Tiago EV features leather-upholstered seats, with the driver’s seat offering height adjustability. The dashboard comes with a steering wheel equipped with mounted control buttons, while behind it lies a digital instrument cluster that shows both speedometer and tachometer readings. In terms of infotainment, the EV is outfitted with a 7-inch HARMAN touchscreen display that supports both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The Tiago EV offers customers two battery options, both boasting an IP67 rating. The first option is a 19.2 kWh battery, available for the XE and XT variants. It is paired with a 45 kW PMSM (Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor) and provides a maximum torque of 110 Nm. This battery offers a top range of 250 km. When using a 3.3 kW home charger, it takes approximately 5.1 hours to charge the EV from 10% to 100%. The same charge can be achieved in 2.6 hours with a 7.2 kW AC charger. Additionally, this battery is compatible with a DC fast charger. The second battery choice is a 24 kWh variant, used in the XT, XZ+, and XZ+ Tech Lux models, and it is paired with a 55 kW PMSM. This setup generates a peak torque of 114 Nm and extends the maximum range to 315 km. Charging this battery from 10% to 100% takes around 6.4 hours with a 3.3 kW home charger or 3.6 hours using a 7.2 kW AC charger. Similar to the previous option, it is also compatible with a DC fast charger.
