Tata Motors has announced that prices for the all-electric Tigor have reduced by Rs 80,000 thanks to the recent cut in GST for electric vehicles. The Tigor EV is now available in three variants – XE, XM and XT – priced between Rs 11.58 lakh and Rs 11.92 lakh.
These prices, however, do not include TCS (a 1 percent tax levied on cars that cost above Rs 10 lakh) or the Indian government’s FAME II scheme that provides subsidies of about Rs 1.62 lakh for the all-electric compact sedan. With the subsidy but not including TCS, prices would reduce to Rs 9.96 lakh for the base variant and Rs 10.30 lakh for the top-spec Tigor EV XT.
|Tata Tigor EV price range (ex-showroom, Mumbai)|
|Old prices||New prices|
|Without FAME II subsidies||Rs 12.35-12.71 lakh||Rs 11.58-11.92 lakh|
|With FAME II subsidies||Rs 10.99-11.09 lakh||Rs 9.96-10.30 lakh|
Still only available for public transport, government officials (via EESL) and other commercial usage, the Tata Tigor EV was previously available in two variants – XM and XT – that were priced Rs 12.35 lakh and Rs 12.71 lakh, respectively. The Tiago EV XM and Tigor EV XT can only be differentiated by the level of kit on offer – the former misses out on 14-inch alloy wheels (instead of steel wheels) and power-adjustable wing mirrors, but comes with body-coloured bumpers and door handles, LED tail-lamps, a climate control unit, driver’s seat height-adjust, power windows and a Harman-sourced 2-DIN audio system with Bluetooth, USB and AUX. All variants, including the base XE, get safety kit such as dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and rear parking sensors.
The Tigor EV comes with a 16.2kWh battery pack that powers a 72V, 3-phase AC induction motor making 30kW (41hp) at 4,500rpm and 105Nm of torque at 2,500rpm. Tata claims a 142km range on a single charge, though our exclusive review showed that it could do about 100km before needing to be plugged in. The battery pack can be charged up to 80 percent in 6 hours via a standard AC wall socket, though a DC 15kW fast charger is capable of doing the same in a claimed 90min.
A three-year/1.25 lakh kilometre warranty is offered as standard with the Tata Tigor EV and battery.
