The Tata Tigor EV was available exclusively to fleet operators and government officials initially. This week, it was replaced with the Tata Tigor EV Extended Range. Since then, it's been available to even private customers.
The new Tata Tigor EV Extended Range is packed with the same 72 V 3-phase AC induction motor that produces a maximum power output of 40.8 PS and a peak torque output of 105 Nm, and a single-speed transmission. It benefits from a higher battery capacity of 21.5 kWh that gives it a higher range – 213 km compared to 142 km range of the erstwhile model.
The Tata Tigor EV Extended Range is available in a total of three different variants – XE+, XM+ and XT+. Available in two colour options - Egyptian Blue and Pearl White, all these three variants have been blessed with the same powertrain and standard safety features, which comprises driver airbag, ABS, reverse parking sensors and seat belt pre-tensioners with load limiters.
This entry level variant of the Tata Tigor EV Extended Range is naturally a bare bones version, which only comes with basic bits like piano black front grille, clear lens LED tail lamps, black door handles and ORVMs, automatic climate control, driver seat height adjustment, power steering with tilt adjustment, manually adjustable ORVMs, ‘eco’ and ‘sport’ drive modes, bottle holders in front console and door pockets and driver information system. The XE+ variant has been priced at INR 12.59 lakh (ex-showroom, India), but the government subsidies bring its price down to INR 9.44 lakh.
Priced at INR 12.76 lakh (ex-showroom, India), the XM+ variant, for the additional INR 17,000 premium over XE+, adds in a kit like co-driver airbag, speed-sensitive auto door lock, all four power windows, 2-DIN music system from Harman with USB, Aux-in and Bluetooth support.
The range-topping XT+ trim will set you back by INR 12.91 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), and for the INR 15,000 premium it carries over the XM+ variant, it offers 14-inch alloy wheels, body-coloured door handles and ORVMs, electrically adjustable ORVMs and remote keyless entry.
