Should You Buy Tata Tigor Petrol Or Tigor EV?

The high kilometre-to-breakeven cost of the Tigor EV makes it difficult for us to recommend the Tigor electric over the petrol-automatic variants of the Tigor. However, EVs have fewer moving parts than petrol cars. Hence, the EV will have a much lower cost of maintenance than the Tigor petrol-automatic.
