We expect the upcoming Tata Tiago EV to sport a similar powertrain to that of the Tata Tigor EV. However, being a newer vehicle Tata Motors could introduce a few changes such as a denser battery pack, a more powerful yet efficient electric motor and a few added features as well.

That being said, it is now been reported that the upcoming Tata Tiago EV features cruise mode and one-pedal drive mode. The latter will benefit the vehicle with stronger regeneration for better battery preservation.

Also, given the lighter kerb weight of the hatchback body, we expect the upcoming Tata Tiago EV to have a better range and performance than the Tata Tigor EV (sub-4m electric sedan). Thanks to new battery preservation features and lower weight, we expect the upcoming Tata Tiago EV to deliver more than 300km range under ideal conditions.

Coming to Tata Tigor EV, the model is powered by an advanced 350V Ziptron EV system and uses a 26kWh battery pack. Moreover, the Tata Tigor EV uses a 74bhp electric motor with 170Nm of torque for propulsion.

Coming to the charging, the Tata Tigor EV takes 65 minutes to charge from 0 to 80 per cent charge using a 25kW fast charger, whereas the same feat in a regular 15A plug point takes 8 hours and 45 minutes, claims the automaker.

Such a product will appeal to many car buyers in tier 1 and tier 2 cities where traffic congestion is on the higher side. Moreover, the hatchback body shape will allow users to navigate busy Indian streets with better confidence.
