After finding success with the Nexon EV in the Indian market, Tata Motors has extended its electric vehicle product portfolio by launching the all-new Tigor EV. While the Nexon EV is powered by a 30.2 kWh battery pack, the Tigor EV, says the company, will come equipped with a 26 kWh battery pack–focusing on a separate set of demographics in the market.
The Nexon EV, based on the Ziptron technology, currently dominates the Indian EV segment, and the company believes the Tigor EV, with the same technology, will grab the same attention, if not more.
According to the company, the Tigor EV is based on three key product pillars: technology, comfort, and safety. The second electric vehicle in Tata’s product line-up comes packed with technological features in regards to the powertrain, infotainment, connectivity, and charging. It comes with a high-voltage Ziptron EV architecture, which offers a high energy density lithium-ion battery pack and a very efficient motor, which help optimize the vehicle’s range and performance. The vehicle is compatible with the globally acceptable CCS2 fast-charging standard and also offers regular charging from any 15 amp plug point–the company says it will install a free 15 amp home charger. Furthermore, the smart regeneration capability of the Tigor EV aids the range of the vehicle.
The car gets a standard automatic transmission and sport mode across all the variants. On the dash sits a 7-inch HARMAN touchscreen infotainment system along with four speakers and tweeters that provide the best-in-segment experience. iRA, the connected car suite, offers 30-plus features including remote commands, intrusion alerts, remote cooling, charging status, time to full charge, and remote diagnosis.
The interior of the Tigor EV, says the company, is designed in a way to deliver superior comfort, space, and silence. Compared to that of the Tigor (ICE version), the interior does not veer away in terms of design–featuring just a few subtle changes like blue inserts on the seats and vents. Similarly, the suspension of the car is optimized to enhance smooth and relaxed driving. The EV offers the convenience of available 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’s boot space, of 316 litres, can be further expanded by 59 litres if the spare wheel is removed.
The Tigor EV’s exterior looks almost similar to that of its ICE sibling. As with any other EV, the traditional grille on the Tigor’s fascia is replaced by a blue panel, and there are blue accents on multiple areas–the headlamps, fog lights, and the front bumper.
The standard safety features of the Tigor EV include an IP67 weather-proof battery pack and motor (8 years and 1,60,000 km battery and motor warranty), dual airbags, ABS with EBD, hill-ascent assist and hill-descent assist, and corner stability control. The company will also provide an emergency tyre-puncture kit.
The Tigor EV will be powered by an IP67 rated 26 kWh lithium-ion battery pack, and it delivers a peak power of 73 bhp and a peak torque of 170 Nm. The car can sprint from 0-60 kmph in 5.7 seconds, and it can achieve an ARAI certified range of 306 km on a single charge. Charging the car from 0-80% will take about 8.5 hours via a standard wall charger, and via a fast charger, the car will charge in just 60 minutes. The Tigor EV is a 4-star receiver on the Global NCAP safety rating.
