    Being the most affordable all-electric offering in the market, along with getting state government subsidies for faster adoption of electric vehicles, will certainly draw prospective buyers towards the Tigor EV. The economics, however, aren’t as attractive when you take into account the Rs 3 lakh to Rs 4 lakh premium it commands over its petrol-automatic counterpart. To put it into perspective, users driving 1,000km per month will take over four years to recoup that initial premium, and it is only then will they benefit from the EV’s lower running costs.

    It has the green credentials, but isn’t as well-rounded as the Tata Nexon EV.

    The Tigor’s interiors don’t feel special enough for a car costing north of a million rupees. It also misses kit like LED headlamps, sunroof, and more, which others offer at this price. EV buyers will certainly see merit in its smooth and refined drive experience, its green credentials and its healthy real-world range of 191km (average), which makes it a capable city commuter. Its unhurried performance on the open road, however, doesn’t make it feel as effortless as the Nexon EV, and even though the latter is more expensive, as a package, it is far more rounded and more desirable in comparison.
