Tata Motors launched the Tigor EV in IndiaPosted On: September 3, 2021 By : Shuva Raj Khatri
Following the huge success of the Nexon EV, Tata Motors has launched the Tigor EV in the Indian market at the starting price of Rs 28 lakh (for XE), followed by other trims: Rs. 30 lakh for XM, and Rs 31 lakh for XZ+.
The newcomer EV differs from its predecessor in terms of the battery pack (it comes with a 26 kWh battery pack as compared to Nexon EV’s 30.2 kWh). That’s because the Tigor EV is more focused on a different set of demographics.
Based on 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.
All Tigor EV variants get a standard automatic transmission and a sports mode. Connected with IRA technology, the car offers 30-plus features, including remote commands, remote cooling, intrusion alerts, charging status, remote diagnosis, and time-to-full charge. And the Tigor’s 7-inch Harman touchscreen infotainment system, along with four speakers and tweeters, provides an unmatchable listening experience.
Battery Performance of the Tigor EV
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. Also, 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 (the company will install the charger for free); a fast charger will charge the car in just 60 minutes.
Features of Tigor EV
The EV, says the company, is primarily designed to deliver superior comfort, space, and silence. It features a few subtle changes compared to the ICE version–like the blue accents on the headlamps, fog lights, front bumper, seats, and vents.
The EV also offers the convenient options of automatic temperature control (standard across all variants), electrically adjustable ORVMs, height-adjustable driving seats, a smart key with push-button start, and a portable charging cable. The car has a boot space of 316 litres, which can be further expanded by 59 litres upon removing the spare wheel.
The standard safety features on the Tata Tigor EV include a weather-proof battery pack, dual airbags, ABS with EBD, hill-descent assist and hill-ascent assist, and corner-stability control. Moreover, the company will also provide an emergency tyre-puncture kit.
