Tata Motors to unveil the Tiago EV on September 28Posted On: September 16, 2022 By : Shuva Raj Khatri
Tata Motors is readying to roll out a new EV–the Tiago EV–in India.The EV will be based on the ICE-powered Tiago model and is expected to use the brand’s Ziptron technology. The new EV will be Tata’s fourth–in addition to the Nexon, Tigor, and XPRES-T–and the most affordable one in the EV lineup. The company is set to unveil the new Tiago EV on September 28.
Design and features
The Tiago EV will get a design similar to that of the ICE-powered Tiago model. However, the EV model is expected to come with several blue accents and EV badging, as seen on the electrified Nexon and Tigor models.
The entry-level hatchback EV might come with notable features such as automatic temperature control, electrically adjustable ORVMs, height-adjustable driving seats, a smart key with push-button start, a weather-proof battery pack, dual airbags, ABS, and hill-ascent assist, among others.
Tata hasn’t revealed any information about the Tiago EV’s battery and specifications. However, the new EV will probably use the brand’s Ziptron technology, which already underpins EVs such as the Nexon EV and the Tigor EV.
The upcoming Tiago EV could get the 30 kW motor offered on the XPRES-T that is capable of producing 105 Nm torque. The motor will be powered by a 21.5 kWh battery pack that provides a range of 213 km.
Furthermore, the new EV, as with the Tigor EV, could also get a more capable battery pack (26 kWh lithium ion) that provides an ARAI-certified range of 301 km. Like the Tigor EV, the Tiago EV is also expected to come in a split battery-pack variant.
Tiago EV price in Nepal
The Tiago EV will be Tata’s most affordable vehicle in the EV lineup. The new hatchback is expected to be priced between the commercial-based XPRES-T EV and the Tigor EV. The Tiago might cost around Rs 25 lakh in Nepal.
