Bookings for the 2022 Tata Tigor EV have commenced officially
Tata Motors has unveiled the 2022 model year Tigor EV that now comes with the high voltage Ziptron electric technology and a design refresh.
To be launched on 31st August 2021, the electric compact sedan can be booked either online or at select Tata dealerships starting today. The token amount has been set at Rs. 21,000/-.
Revealed in the Teal Blue shade, the refreshed EV adopts the internal combustion engine-powered Tigor’s current look which was introduced last year.
But, the electric version of the compact sedan can be distinguished through the fluorescent blue highlights that can be seen throughout its exterior (even on the wheels) and also, the grille is blanked off.
Inside, the car comes with a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, fully automatic temperature control, height adjustable driver seat, smart key, push button start, over 30 connected car features, 4 speakers and 4 tweeters.
It also has electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs and a cargo volume of 316 litres. Customers can opt to remove the spare wheel, which increases the boot space to 375 litres, and in that case, Tata will offer the car with a tyre puncture kit.
Equipped with a 26 kWh Lithium-ion battery pack, the 2022 Tata Tigor EV is powered by a 55 kW (74 HP) permanent magnet synchronous AC motor which puts out a peak torque of 170 Nm.
The EV can sprint to 60 km/hr from nought in 5.7 seconds and also has a ‘Sport’ mode. Tata is reserving the range figure for the official launch, but it should be around the 250 km mark.
Charging the battery pack takes 8.5 hours (0-80 percent) using a 15 A plug point. A fast charger would need only an hour to do the same task. Tata will offer a portable charging cable with the car.
Both the battery pack and the electric motor come with a 8 years and 1.60 lakh km warranty and the battery complies with AIS-048 standards for nail penetration at cell level.
Safety features that the EV comes with include dual airbags, ABS, EBD, Corner Stability Control (CSC), hill ascent assist and hill descent assist.
