Tigor EV soon to be launched in Nepal | Price and variants revealedPosted On: February 18, 2022 By : Shuva Raj Khatri
Following the huge success of the Nexon EV in Nepal, Tata Motors is all set to launch the Tigor EV here. The newcomer EV differs from its predecessor in terms of the battery pack (it comes with a 26 kWh battery pack, as compared to the Nexon EV’s 30.2 kWh one). The changes have been made because the Tigor EV is more focused on a different set of demographics.
The Tigor EV comes in three variants: the XE, the XM, and the XZ+, at a starting price of Rs 29.99 lakh and goes up to Rs 32.99 lakh.
Get to know more about the vehicle:
Based on the Ziptron Technology, the Tigor relies on three key pillars: technology, comfort, and safety, and it is equipped with advanced technological features in regards to the powertrain, infotainment, connectivity, and charging. The Ziptron system features a high energy density lithium-ion battery pack and motor that optimises the vehicle’s range, performance, and efficiency.
The EV is primarily designed to deliver superior comfort, space, and silence. It features a few subtle changes compared to the ICE version–like blue accents on the headlamps, fog lights, front bumper, seats, and vents.
Battery and performance
The Tigor EV gets an IP67-rated 26 kWh lithium-ion battery pack combined with an electric motor – with a warranty of 8 years and 1,60,000 km – that delivers a peak power of 73 bhp and a peak torque of 170 Nm.
The vehicle is compatible with the globally acceptable CCS2 fast-charging standard, allowing the car to charge from 0 to 80% in about 8.5 hours, via a standard 15 amp home charger; a fast charger will charge the car in just 60 minutes.
Furthermore, on a full charge, the Tigor EV provides a range of 306 km (ARAI certified).
The electric sedan has a boot space of 316 litres, which can be further expanded by 59 litres upon removing the spare wheel.
