Following the launch of the Tiago EV in India, Sipradi Trading Pvt. Ltd–the sole distributor of Tata vehicles in Nepal–is readying to launch the all-new Tiago EV in Nepal. The Tiago EV is based on the latest ICE-powered Tiago and it gets the brand’s Ziptron technology.
The Tiago.ev inherits the design elements of its facelifted ICE-powered Tiago model. However, the EV’s front fascia features a refreshed grille with .EV badge that extends to the projector headlamps with DRLs. The EV comes with dual-coloured roof and blue highlights throughout the body.
Inside, the EV comes with leather-upholstered seats and the driver’s seat is height adjustable. On the dashboard is a steering wheel with mounted control buttons and behind it is a digital instrument console that displays a speedometer and tachometer dial. For infotainment, the EV comes equipped with a 7-inch HARMAN touchscreen display that is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The Tiago EV is offered in two IP67-rated battery options: a 19.2 kWh (for XE and XT) and a 24 kWh (for XT, XZ+, and XZ+ Tech lux).
The 19.2 kWh battery, mated to a 45 kW PMSM (Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors), produces a maximum torque of 110 Nm and provides a maximum range of 250 km. The EV can be charged from 10-100 % in 5.1 hours via a 3.3 kW home charger and the same amount can be charged in 2.6 hours using a 7.2kW AC charger. In addition, the battery is also compatible with a DC fast charger.
The 24 kWh battery–paired to a 55 kW PMSM (Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motors)–generates a maximum torque of 114 Nm and offers a maximum range of 315 km. The EV takes 6.4 hours to charge from 10-100% via a 3.3 kW home charger and requires 3.6 hours to charge the same amount using a 7.2 kW AC charger. Moreover, the battery is also compatible with a DC fast charger.
The Tiago EV comes equipped with ZConnect technology–integrated with infotainment system and accessible via smartphones–that offers 45 connected car features such as remote AC on/off with temperature setting, remote geo fencing and car location tracking, smart watch connectivity, remote vehicle health diagnostics, real-time charge status, and dynamic charger locator, among others.
The other notable features are its driver and co-driver airbags, driving modes (Sport and City), ABS with EBD, reverse park assist, driving modes, electric adjustable ORVMs, and power windows, among others.
