Tata Motors is gearing up to introduce a new and improved avatar of the Tigor EV, which will come with the same motor and battery configuration as the Nexon EV.
Tata Tigor EV likely to be launched soon
Tata Motors has given a glimpse of the upcoming Tigor EV in a new teaser video that also features India’s first F1 driver, Narain Karthikeyan. The Tigor EV is already sold under the name Xpres-T, but this new avatar of the sedan will come with Tata’s Ziptron technology and will get some styling changes and a better powertrain. The sedan is also claiming a range of close to 300 km on a single charge.
The Tigor hasn’t been a strong product for the company in the private sector, but the vehicle was used in fleets and given to several government officials. Tata changed the name of the commercial variant of the Tigor EV to Xpres-T and still sells it. However, poor performance and low range are preventing the general buyers from opting for the Tigor EV so far.
The new teaser that has been revealed through Tata suggests that the new Tigor EV will come with Tata’s Ziptron technology, which can also be seen in the Nexon EV. can. In the teaser video, the E-SUV can be seen driving next to a camouflaged sedan. Till now, the Tigor EV came with a 72V 3-phase motor that made 40hp and 105Nm of peak torque. The 21.5kWh battery gives a range of 213 km on a single charge. If the Tigor EV is powered by the same 127hp engine as the Nexon EV, it will easily outperform the older Tigor EV and attract more buyers.
The new sedan will get a range of 300 km per charge. This range is also high because of the 30.2kWh battery pack. Like Nexon, fast charging will also be available in Tigor EV. Only alloy wheels were seen in the video of the Tigor EV, which has been given a blue accent. At the front, LED DRLs are seen on the bumper. The design of the DRLs will remind you of the Altroz. The headlamp design remains the same but it looks like the grille will sport a similar design to the Nexon EV. Even the bumper will come with a tri-arrow pattern which now gives a different look to the Tata vehicles.
The teaser video did not reveal when the vehicle would be launched but the vehicle could be launched during Diwali. If we talk about the price, then the price of Tigor EV can be higher than before. But due to the recent changes in FAME II scheme and additional subsidies offered by some states, the price of the vehicle may come down.
