Tata Motors’ pavilion is, undoubtedly, the most promising one at the Delhi Auto Expo 2018. While the home-grown carmaker has showcased its entire range of new breed cars (including premium hatchback and SUVs), it also displayed the Tiago JTP, Tigor JTP and Tamo Racemo sportscar at its Performance division. Tata’s electric range has also graced the event. Alongside the Tiago electric, the company has previewed the electric version of the Tigor compact sedan. Manufactured at Tata’s Sanand plant in Gujarat, the Tata Tigor electric has already been supplied to state-run Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL).
Tata will develop 10,000 Tigor electric vehicles for the state-run Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL). The tender was rolled out by the government for supplying 10,000 EVs to EESL and Tata Motors quoted the lowest price of INR 10.16 lakh (excluding GST) along with a 5-year warranty. By including GST, the price increases to Rs 11.2 lakh. The company will also offer 3-year warranty with the electric sedan. Read – Tata Tiago Electric – All You Need To Know

Tata’s newest model in the subcompact space is built on the modified XO underpinning that is a relatively low-cost platform. This will indeed help carmaker to offset battery and some component cost to an extent. The price quoted for Tigor EV by Tata Motors for the government’s tender is Rs 10.16 lakh barring GST, while the Tigor EV price inclusive of GST is slightly more at Rs 11.2 lakh. In addition, Tata is also offering a warranty for five years on Tigor EVs to be supplied to the state-run Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL).
Design of the electric version of Tigor looks exactly similar to the regular model. Though, it comes with small changes to differentiate it from the standard Tigor. The Tigor electric features the EV badge on grille and at the back. The basic silhouette remains same and other prominent design and styling elements are retained from the standard model. Interior also gets the same layout and pack in most of the features offered on the regular Tigor.

Tata Motors has opted for a smaller capacity motor for the India-spec model. The Tigor EV derives its power from a 29.8kW (39.95bhp) electric motor. The Tata Tigor electric car will directly challenge the Mahindra eVerito electric, which offers slightly more power (30.5kW or 41bhp). However, the Tigor electric is around 200kgs lighter than its counterpart.
As a reminder, the Tata Tiago EV is a battery-operated car that will come equipped with a liquid-cooled 85kW drive motor that offers 200Nm of torque. The Tiago EV is said to achieve the 0 to 100kmph mark in less than 11 seconds.
The rechargeable battery in the Tigor Electric will deliver 100km of range on a single charge.
