    2021 Tata Tigor Electric Arrives At Dealer – First Look Walkaround

    Tata Tigor Electric. Image – MissautologsExpected to be priced aggressively, Tigor EV will have no direct rival in the Indian market as of now
    Tata Motors will launch the facelifted Tigor electric sedan in India on 31st August. It will be a lot cheaper than the Nexon EV, which is priced from Rs 13.99 lakh, ex-sh. This will make it the most affordable electric car for passenger segment car buyers in the country.
    2021 Tata Tigor electric sedan not only gets cosmetic updates but also receives a serious upgrade in its powertrain. The new EV is based on the facelifted version of the IC-engine powered Tigor which was launched last year. Prior to its launch, Tigor EV has now arrived at showrooms for display. Test drive will commence soon.
    Last month, Tata Motors launched the fleet version of Tigor EV which has been rebranded as XPres-T EV under a dedicated EV vertical called Xpres. It does not get the larger battery pack nor the Ziptron tech as seen on the new Tigor electric.
    Updated Exterior
    As seen in Xpres-T EV, the new Tigor EV gets a new front fascia with an updated set of headlights and upfront along with a new sharper nose. YouTube channel Missautologs has shared a detailed first look walkaround review video of the new Tigor EV, revealing exteriors styling, interior features, space, etc.
    [embedded content]
    Tri-arrow patterns in the traditional grille of the IC engine-powered Tigor have been replaced with a new glossy black panel. The faux grille is contoured with a blue-coloured strip underneath. The blue highlights have been extended inside the projector LED headlights.
    The reprofiled front bumper also gets revised fog lamp housings with integrated LED DRLs. The battery-powered Tigor could be differentiated from the regular sedan as the former wears Ev badging on the grille and boot lid. The car rides on 15-inch alloy wheels with a new design that also features blue accents. The silhouette of the car, however, remains identical.
    Interior & Features
    Blue highlights outside the cabin have been carried forward inside the cabin too in order to distinguish between the IC engine-powered sedan and the battery-powered sedan. The overall layout of its interior remains the same.
    New Tata Tigor Electric Instrument Cluster Shows Remaining Battery Charge And Range Details
    In terms of features, Tigor EV is offered with a 7.0-inch Harmon touchscreen infotainment unit enabled with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, iRA connected car tech, 4 speakers and 4 tweeters, automatic climate control, multi-function steering wheel and digital instrument cluster.
    More Power & Range
    The biggest update, however, is in the form of a new heart. Tigor EV now features a Ziptron EV powertrain that first debuted in Nexon EV. This powertrain now consists of a high-voltage 300 volt permanent magnet synchronous electric motor instead of a 72V AC induction-type motor previously offered in the pre-facelift Tigor EV. This motor is rated to produce an output of 75 bhp and 170 Nm of peak torque.
    It derives its energy from a 26kWh Lithium-ion battery pack which is expected to deliver a range of over 300 kms on a single charge. The IP67 rated powertrain allows a 0-60 kmph sprint in just 5.7 seconds. With Ziptron tech available, Tigor EV is now compatible with fast charging.

The powertrain is supported by a 30.2 kWh lithium-ion battery pack which is offers an ARAI certified range of 312 km on a single charge. 0-100 kmph comes in 9.9 seconds.

    New Tata Tigor Electric Sedan Spied Undisguised – Up To 350 Kms Range

    Tata Tigor Electric Sedan2021 Tigor Electric sedan will come in with a larger battery pack with Tata’s Ziptron architecture and range of up to 350 kms
    The coming days will see launch of the second electric vehicle from Tata Motors for the passenger car market. 2021 Tata Tigor EV bookings have officially opened. Ahead of launch on 31st August, the New Tata Tigor Electric Sedan has started arriving at dealerships, where it has now been spied undisguised. Hat tip to automotive enthusiast Aryan Km for sharing the exclusive spy shots on Rushlane Spylane.
    Tata Motors’ Ziptron technology
    2021 Tigor EV will get Tata Motors’ Ziptron technology, which is also seen in the case of the Nexon EV. Ziptron technology offers a permanent magnet AC motor paired with a lithium-ion battery. This battery pack is both dust and waterproof and complies with IP67 standards.
    The Ziptron based Tigor will receive a 300V permanent magnet electric motor which is an upgrade as compared to the 72 V AC induction motor seen on its earlier counterpart. Tata Motors confirms that this technology would relate to a longer driving range of over 300 kms or even close to 350 kms, but these figures have not been confirmed as on date.
    The leaked photo shows instrument cluster with over 200 kms range with 59% battery charge left. At this rate, for a full 100% charge, the instrument cluster could show close to 350 kms range for the new Tata Tigor electric car.
    Tata Tigor Electric Range
    The Tigor EV receive alloy wheels with blue accents, LED DRLs mounted on its front bumper and similar designs for headlamp and grille as seen on the Nexon EV. The bumper will sport a tri-arrow pattern as is common on Tata vehicles.
    Given the fact that it receives some feature updates and an extended range would mean that pricing could also be increased over its earlier counterpart. However, the Tata Tigor EV would also take advantage of revisions in the FAME II scheme which along with state government subsidies could put in a highly affordable price range.
    Tata Fast Charging Capabilities
    As is seen in the case of Nexon, 2021 Tata Tigor EV would also support fast charging capabilities for added convenience. To put this into perspective, with Ziptron technology, the Nexon EV can be charged from 0 to 80 percent in just 60 minutes and upto 7-8 hours via a home charger which is also what is expected on the Tigor EV.
    Tata Tigor Electric Sedan
    Tata XPres-T
    Earlier this year, Tata Motors had also introduced the XPres-T, a variant of Tigor EV for commercial / fleet segment. It is presented in two variants of XM+ and XT+ and priced at Rs 9.75 lakh and Rs 9.90 lakh respectively.
    Xpress-T uses a 72V motor with a 21.5 kWh battery pack which along with Ziptron technology, takes power and range up significantly. Earlier last month, the model was open for bookings and deliveries commenced with the first batch rolling being delivered to Garden Reach Shipbuilders and Engineers Ltd., Kolkata.

    Tata Nexon Electric Demand Is As Good As Nexon Diesel Demand

    Image – JJ Automobile VlogsTata Motors currently retails two battery-powered cars in the form of Tigor EV and Nexon EV
    With electric mobility given a serious push in the country, we are witnessing a rise in demand for electric vehicles. This has further been aided by soaring fuel prices in recent months. On a related note, Tata Motors has revealed that demand for Nexon EV has gained a lot of traction in recent months and is currently on par with its diesel-powered sibling.
    This development was confirmed by PB Balaji, Chief Financial Officer, Tata Motors, in an interaction with media during the company’s earnings call. He went on to reveal that the order book for Nexon EV in July 2021 is neck to neck with the diesel variant. Sales of Nexon EV and diesel variants of Nexon are comparable where both iterations of the subcompact SUV are available for sale.
    Surge in demand for EVs
    In fact, in some states like Maharashtra and Gujarat, sales of battery-powered Nexon have taken over its oil burner counterpart. According to Balaji, the combination of benefits from the revised FAME II policies and various subsidies by different state governments are some of the primary reasons for the favourable demand for EVs. The company’s share of electric vehicles has risen from 0.2 percent two years ago to 3 percent of total sales in June-July 2021.
    Tata Motors is hopeful that Nexon EV’s shares will soon account for 5 percent of total passenger vehicle sales of the company. Nexon EV witnessed its highest quarterly sales when Tata was able to sell 1,715 units of the subcompact electric crossover in the April-June quarter. A total of 53,800 cars were sold by Tata Motors during this period.
    Tata Nexon Electric
    Jubilant by seeing the rise in demand, the homegrown automaker has announced that it will launch as many as ten electric vehicles by 2025. The company has already announced its association with Tata Power in setting up an ecosystem of 400 charging points across the country.
    Lower Running Cost of EVs
    Another point in favour of electric vehicles is their low running costs. In many states, prices of petrol, and in some cases diesel as well, have surged past Rs 100 per litre in recent times. Hence the industry has witnessed a strong shift towards EVs. For instance, as per industry estimates, the running cost of petrol and diesel cars is about Rs 4-7 per kilometre in Delhi as compared to Rs 1.6-1.7 for CNG cars and Rs 1.47 for electric cars.
    Tata Motors is presently in the process of ramping up production capacity for Nexon EV but is constrained by the chip shortage. While share of diesel-powered models across the passenger vehicle segment has shrunk significantly over the past year, Tata Motors currently has no plans to phase out the diesel variant of the Nexon.
    In fact, Tata Motors has plans to launch a string of new EVs in India in the coming years. All their new generation cars are built on platforms which are EV compatible. Depending on demand, the company can launch new EVs. Next up planned in the EV space from Tata is most likely Altroz EV followed by HBX EV. More
