Tata Motors has reintroduced the Tata Tigor EV with the latest Ziptron Technology which is a high voltage EV architecture from the company.
Tata launched Nexon EV in January 2020 and has sold more than 6000 units since then. The company says that the TATA Nexon EV customers have collectively driven more than 35 million kilometers saving 35kilo tonnes of carbon dioxide emission.
It’s equivalent to plant 5 lacks of trees (half a million trees).
The next electric passenger car from TATA Motors, the Tigor EV goes on sale by 31st August and the prebooking has already started.
The Tigor EV provides you a peak power output of 55kW and a peak torque of 170 Nm.
The vehicle accelerates from 0-60km/h in 5.7 s.
The battery pack of the vehicle has a capacity of 26 kWh and it uses Li-ion chemistry. The battery management system is based on the real-world test results from the Indian driving conditions.
To make you connected to your TATA Tigor EV, it comes with 30+ connected features such as remote commands and remote diagnosis, remote cooling, etc. The connected car feature is called iRA.
So, you can contact your car through your mobile phone.
If we check the energy efficiency of the vehicle, it is equipped with unique software strategies to extract the maximum energy from the battery pack with fewer losses.
The tires of the vehicle will have low rolling resistance with 10% lower rolling losses.
The regenerative braking technology that extracts the energy during braking is fine-tuned for Indian driving conditions.
The battery pack and motor of the Tata Tigor EV are IP67 rated to make it weatherproof.
And it provides you battery and motor warranty of 8 years and 160000 km.
The electric vehicles are not compromising on safety at all and the Tigor EV claims that it is the safest electric sedan in the country. It has a proven rear crash-compatible structure and complies with ODB 64 (Offset Deformable Barrier) test standards.
Battery and Charging
The battery pack casing is impact resistance with AIS-048 for nail penetration at the cell level. AIS is the Automotive Industry Standard for Battery-operated vehicles from ARAI.
The Tigor EV has the CCS2 charging standard that can be used for both fast and slow charging. In fast charging, the vehicle charges to 80% of its capacity in about 1 hour.
In home charging, it takes around 8.5 hours to charge to 80% of the capacity.
Similar to other electric vehicles the Tigor EV will also have a silent cabin and will have a refined driving experience. The lower center of gravity of the vehicle makes it more stable.
There are Drive and Sport modes to choose between based on the situation and demand. The vehicle has a 7” HARMAN touchscreen infotainment system with 4 speakers and 4 tweeters.
The other features are the dual airbags, height-adjustable seats, ABS (Antilock Braking System) with EBD (Electronic Brakeforce Distribution), and CSC (Corner Stability Control).
