Tata Tigor EV

An Overview Of The Tata Tigor EV

The Tigor EV is an electric version of Tata’s popular Tigor subcompact sedan. It has a 26kWh lithium-ion battery pack that powers a permanent magnet synchronous electric motor. This motor generates 75PS of power and 170Nm of torque, enabling a top speed of 120kmph.

The Tigor EV has a standard warranty of 8 years/1,60,000km on the battery and motor. Tata offers real-world range figures instead of solely relying on ARAI estimates. Based on real-world driving conditions, the company claims the Tigor EV delivers over 200km range on a single charge.

Driving Range Of The Tata Tigor EV

Range anxiety is a crucial concern for anyone switching to an electric vehicle. The ARAI-certified range for the Tigor EV is 315km on a single full charge. However, the real-world driving range is lower and depends on factors like terrain, driving style and air conditioning usage.

The 26kWh battery pack contains liquid-cooled lithium-ion cells. This thermal management system optimises cell temperatures, enhancing battery efficiency, extending lifespan and improving the car’s range.

Charging Options And Charging Time

Tata offers versatile charging options for the Tigor EV, making daily and long-distance driving convenient. Here’s a look at the different charging methods and how long each takes:

  • AC Home Wallbox Charger: Charge the Tigor EV anywhere from a 15A socket using the AC Home Wallbox charger. This allows you to conveniently charge from home overnight. The wall box charger charges the battery from 10% to 100% state of charge in 9.4 hours. 
  • Fast Charging: Tata has set up a network of fast charging stations nationwide in major cities and highways. These stations can charge the Tigor EV battery from 10 to 80% in less than an hour, enabling inter-city travel with pit stops for quick charging.

Performance Of Tata Tigor EV

The Tigor EV delivers a max power output of 75PS and a peak torque 170Nm. The electric motor provides instant torque, resulting in quick acceleration that is especially useful for overtaking in city traffic. While not meant for drag races, the performance is more than enough for everyday commuting.

The Tata Tigor EV can accelerate from 0 to 60kmph in 5.7 seconds. Its motor generates enough torque to reach a top speed of 120kmph. Additionally, the vehicle is equipped with regenerative braking, which helps recuperate energy while slowing down, thereby boosting its overall range. The braking performance is similar to that of other petrol/diesel compact cars like the Hyundai i20, ensuring a smooth and economical drive.
