    Tata Tigor EV Launching Tomorrow

    by Mahesh Yadav on Monday, Aug 30 2021

    Tata Tigor EV, the second electric car for the personal car buyer will go on sale tomorrow. The Tigor electric car launching tomorrow borrows the style cues from the Tigor facelift, which went on sale early in 2020. The Tata X-pres T, which is the Tigor EV’s version exclusively for the commercial segment, also went on sale in July 2021.

    Here’s everything we know about the Tigor EV.

    Tata Tigor EV Specifications

    The Tigor EV gets a 75PS electric motor with 170Nm of torque. This torque output is on par with Nexon turbo petrol but the immediate delivery of this torque at low speeds will make the Tigor EV feel like it’s even faster off the line.

    Compared to the commercial version of the Tigor electric, the Xpres-T, the Tigor EV makes 34PS more power and 65Nm more torque. The Tigor EV’s 26kWh battery is also about 20% larger than the Xpres-T long range.

    Obviously, this more powerful motor will be demanding on the battery. But a rough calculation leads us to believe that because of the larger, even with the more powerful motor, the Tigor EV should manage to deliver 250km of range per charge. The Xpres-T’s long-range version is good for 213km of range with a 21.5kWh battery while the lower variant can cover 165km with a 16.5kWh battery pack.

    A recently-surfaced image of the instrument cluster of the Tigor EV also hints at a range estimate of about 250km per charge.

    Tata Tigor EV Dimensions

    The Tigor EV is identical to the regular Tigor in dimensions. The only difference could come in boot space and ground clearance. The Tigor electric uses the spare wheel well to store the batteries. So, the spare wheel sits in the boot. This leaves 316 litres of boot space. However, you have the option to remove the spare wheel, which will give you 375 litres of storage capacity. It’s worth noting that this is still 44 litres less than the petrol Tigor.

    Tigor EV Interior

    Unlike the Nexon EV, which lost 2% of its ground clearance after migrating to the electric powertrain, the Tigor EV may not have a lower clearance. The Xpres-T electric has a ground clearance of 176mm, which is 6mm more than the regular Tigor. If the new Tigor EV uses a similar setup to manage the extra battery weight, then the Tigor EV could also end up with considerably better clearance than the petrol Tigor.

    Tigor EV Colour Option

    Initially, it looks you can only buy the Tigor EV in the signature teal blue shade. However, we expect to see more colour options on the menu soon after the car goes on sale.
