Tata Motors revealed the Tigor EV on Wednesday, the company’s second electric vehicle following the Nexon EV.
Nexon EV, which has a 70% market share in the domestic electric car class, has proven to be a success for the automaker.The Tigor EV is powered by Ziptron, the company’s high-voltage electric architecture, and was created with three pillars in mind: technology, comfort, and safety. Tata Motors has begun taking reservations for the new Tigor EV at select dealerships, with deliveries set to begin on August 31.
“In India, the last few years have belonged to the early adopters of electric vehicles, but now is the time for the early majority to make the switch. We can safely declare that EVs are rapidly becoming mainstream, based on our really positive experience with the Nexon EV “At the launch of the Tigor EV, Tata Motors Head-Marketing (Passenger and Electric Vehicles Business Unit) Vivek Srivatsa remarked.
He noted that the country’s electric vehicle market has reached a tipping point, and the company needs to provide a wide range of customer needs while also democratising the EV market with another affordable and modern product.Anand Kulkarni, Vice President, Product Line, Electric Vehicle and ALFA Architecture, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicle Business, stated that the Tigor EV is developed on five pillars: performance, technology, dependability, charging, and comfort.
“With the Ziptron technology, Tata Motors has been able to disprove, to a significant extent, the widespread myths surrounding EVs today in terms of power, monsoon usage, dependability, suitability for long distance driving, charging frequency, and so on,” he added.
The Tigor EV produces 55 kW of peak power and 170 Nm of peak torque. It accelerates from 0 to 60 km/h in 5.7 seconds. It comes with a 26 kWh Lithium-ion battery pack with an eight-year battery and motor guarantee of 1,60,000 kilometres.
