Tata Tigor Electric Vehicle will rival the likes of Mahindra e20 Plus and Mahindra Verito. Safely expect this car to cost upto Rs 10 lakh
It is by now fairly well known that Tata Motors, the popular passenger car, and commercial vehicle manufacturer, has been busy readying electric versions of its popular models. The company plans to launch these electric vehicles in near future. Of course, prices of these EVs will be substantially more than that of the fossil fuel-sipping variants, but it’s simply impossible to overlook the green credentials of these cars. One of the upcoming Tata electric cars in India is the Tigor Electric. The Tata Tigor Electric vehicle is on display at the Auto Expo 2018 and is likely to launch by the end of this decade.
It’s worth a mention here that Tata Motors has already delivered the first set of Tata Tigor Electric Vehicles (EVs) to state-run Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL). The company qualified as L1 bidder in the midst of stiff competition and won the tender of 10,000 electric cars floated by EESL in September 2017.
The Tata Tigor Electric is powered by 3-phase AC induction motor that outputs a maximum power of 30kW at 4,500 RPM. The electric motor gets its juice from a 216 Ah 16V battery pack that can be fully charged in six hours. A fast charger can charge the batteries from zero to 80% in just 90 minutes. This EV has a range of 130 KMs on a full charge. In terms of looks, the Tigor EV looks a lot like the regular version. However, you can differentiate it from the Petrol/Diesel variants by the EV badging, and tinted headlamps.
