Regarding the Tigor EV's public launch, the company aims to do that in phases in order to have enough time to set up enough charging infrastructure across the country. Previously, Tata Motors was supplying the all-electric compact-sedan only to Energy Efficiency Service Limited (EESL). Meanwhile, the company is also readying the launch of the Tiago EV to rival the upcoming Maruti Wagon R Electric.

The Tata Tigor EV is powered by a 30kW motor, sourced from Electra EV. The powertrain has a claimed range of 130km on a single charge, along with a top speed of 100km/h. The motor is coupled to a 216Ah 72V battery which can be charged up to 80 per cent in six hours.

The Tigor EV is also available with an optional fast charging system which reduces the charging time to just 1.5 hours.

Thoughts On The Tata Tigor EV

The Tata Tigor Electric is certainly an interesting choice for an urban environment, but their popularity is still at a nascent stage since they have not gone on general sale. With better supporting infrastructure and popularity through Capgemini, the Tigor EV might become a choice worth making in the not-too-distant future.
