Tata Motors has launched the updated Tigor EV with a new paint job, a longer range, and additional features. It is available in four variants, namely XE, XT, XZ+, and XZ+ Lux, with prices starting from Rs 12.49 lakh (ex-showroom).
The exterior of the Tigor EV remains unchanged except for the new Magnetic Red colour. Inside, it gains artificial leather upholstery for the seats and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Further, Tata has bestowed the electric sedan with a few new features, such as auto headlights, rain-sensing wipers, cruise control, ‘ZConnect’ connected car features with smartwatch connectivity, multi-regen modes, a tyre pressure monitoring system, and a tyre puncture repair kit.
The updated Tigor EV carries forward the same 26kWh battery but now provides an ARAI-tested travel range of 315km. It gets a single electric motor that generates 74bhp and 170Nm of torque.
Notably, the existing Tigor EV customers will also benefit from new features, such as iTPMS, multi-regen modes, and smartwatch connectivity (only on XZ+ and XZ+ dual-tone variants) via a free software update. They will get a tyre puncture repair kit too. To install the latest software, the Tigor EV owners can visit their nearest Tata dealerships starting from 20 December, 2022.
Speaking on the occasion, Shailesh Chandra, MD, Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd. and Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd., said, “The recently introduced Tiago EV – a product launched to democratise the EV market, received a tremendous response and we are elated to announce that it has garnered over 20,000 bookings in just a month since its launch.
