Now, TeamBHP has got hold of a homologation document from Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI) which reveals the technical details of the Tigor electric sedan.
The homologation document reveals that the Tigor's electric motor produces 40bhp of maximum power and will accommodate five passengers in a 2+3 configuration. The kerb weight of the Tigor electric stands at 1,516kg which is 200kg lighter than the Mahindra eVerito.
The Tigor electric will offer a driving range of 120km to 150km on a full charge. Tata Motors has not revealed other details such as charging time and battery replacement interval. The Tigor electric has been homologated, and it can be driven on the Indian roads.
Tata Motors will supply 350 electric cars to a government organisation called as EESL as it has won a massive order to provide 10,000 electric cars. The first phase of the order will be completed this month.
Apart from the Tigor, Tata Motors will launch several electric cars in the Indian market. The company has already revealed the electric variant of the Tiago and has been testing the Nano electric on the Indian roads.
The Nano electric could be the first electric car to be launched in India, and it will be followed by Tigor and Tiago. The major challenge for electric cars would be the charging infrastructure as the government has just started the process of setting up the charging stations.
The Government of India has an ambitious plan of shifting towards pure electric vehicles by 2030. Car makers such as Mahindra and Tata Motors are already gearing up for the massive transition. But the major hurdle will be the charging infrastructure, and it will be interesting to see how the government will go about for setting up charging stations in the country.
