The Tata Tigor EV scored 4 stars for both adult and child occupant protection in the Global NCAP test
Global NCAP has given the 2022 Tata Tigor EV a 4-star safety rating for both adult and child occupant protection based on the results obtained from the recent round of crash tests.
Assessed (tested at 64 km/hr) in its most basic safety specification, the Tigor EV, which comes fitted with 2 airbags and Seat Belt Reminder (SBR) for driver and passenger as standard, weighed 1470 kg.
Out of a maximum of 17 points which can be scored for adult occupant protection, the Tigor EV received 12.
Global NCAP said the Electric Vehicle (EV) offered good protection to the driver head and adequate protection to the passenger head, while both front occupants’ neck received good protection.
The Tata Tigor EV Global NCAP crash test showed that the car offered adequate protection to the driver chest, good protection to the passenger chest and marginal protection to the knees of front occupants.
Next up, out of 49 points which can be scored for child occupant protection, the compact electric sedan got 37.24 points.
According to the findings of the test, the EV, which was fitted with 2 rearward-facing child seats (3-year-old and 1.5-year-old), offered good head and chest protection to the child occupants.
Its Child Restraint Systems (CRS) marking was permanent and the recommended CRS did not show incompatibility, said Global NCAP.
However, the testing agency did rate the bodyshell of the Tigor EV as unstable and incapable of withstanding further loadings. Further, the footwell area was rated as unstable as well.
By equipping the Tigor EV with Electronic Stability Control (ESC), side impact protection, 3-point seat belts in all seating positions and ISOFIX connectors as standard, the safety rating of the car can be improved further, Global NCAP declared.
