While Tata Motors has been offering the Tigor EV to the public sector, it may now consider launching the car in phases for private passenger vehicle buyers. The President (Passenger Vehicles) at Tata Motors, Mayank Pareek, has confirmed that the Tigor EV will be launched in a few cities initially before being made available in other parts of the country. The company is reportedly considering the charging infrastructure available in the country before launching the Tigor EV in the mainstream PV market along with other products like the Bolt EV, Zest EV and the Tiago EV.
The Tigor EV is 3992 mm long and 1677 mm wide while it also has a 2450 mm wheelbase and is 1537 mm tall. There is 170 mm of ground clearance along with a 30 kW electric motor which is mated to the single-speed transmission system. The motor comes from Electra EV and there is a 72V 216 Ah battery in place. Charging the car till 80% with a fast charger takes just 1.5 hours while a regular charger means 6 hours till this charge level is achieved.
The total range of the car is 130 km with the top speed being 100 kmph. The Tigor EV could sell for anything around Rs. 11 lakh (ex-showroom) for private buyers in India and Pareek has reportedly confirmed that it may arrive across Tata Motors dealerships by March 2019.
