Indian Tata unveils electric version of Tigor

August 19, 2021 0 By autotimesnews

The compact is made thanks to the accumulated experience in the development of the Nexon EV, and may become one of the most massive electric vehicles in the country.

India’s largest automaker Tata Motors has unveiled a new electric car that targets the mass segment. According to the portal, the Tata Tigor EV can already be ordered with a prepayment of 21 thousand rupees.

The company is confident that the Tigor EV will become very popular in its homeland. Right now, according to the leadership of Tata, a turning point has begun for India, which will gradually allow the country to completely abandon cars with internal combustion engines.

When developing the Tigor EV, Tata specialists relied on five fundamental principles: high performance, reliability, manufacturability, good charging and comfort. To help achieve these points, the original Ziptron technology helped the manufacturer dispel many of the popular myths surrounding electric vehicles in India. This primarily concerns high-voltage charging.

Nevertheless, the technical characteristics of the new car are not very impressive. The power plant is one 75 horsepower electric motor with a torque of 170 Nm. The company also cites acceleration figures … up to 60 kilometers per hour in 5.7 seconds. The lithium-ion battery has a capacity of 26 kWh. Indicators of the power reserve are not given, however, it is known that the warranty for the battery will be 160 thousand kilometers, or 8 years.
