Tigor EV and Nexon EV are the Tata gears that are based on two different body types. These two products from Tata are operating in the ” affordable ” segment of the electric power industry and will become increasingly powerful in driving the electrification of the mass market.
Following a product line strategy similar to that of Nexon EV, the Tigor EV was released on Tuesday – in three trims – XE, XM and XZ+ between Rs11.99 lakh and Rs 12. 99 lakh (ex-showroom). On the other hand, the Nexon EV is priced between Rs 13.99 and Rs 16.65 (ex-showroom).
Some states offer significant subsidies and tax breaks to advertise electric vehicles, thereby lowering the effective rate on the road. The company was also able to achieve the same range on both cars. Tata Motors has used its flexible and expandable Ziptron power module under both vehicles.
The 26 kWh IP67 battery capacity in the Tigor EV is less than the 30.2 kWh in the Nexon EV but provides an equivalent range of 306 km/charge compared to 312 km/charge in the SUV. In real-world conditions, according to customers, the Nexon EV offers a range from 225 to 260 km/charge.
Both machines are charged 0-80% using the CCS 2 fast charger or 15 amp plug at the same time. A 0-80% fast charge takes 60 minutes and 65 minutes on the Nexon EV and Tigor EV, respectively, while the company claims 8.5 hours via an AC phone booth charger.
Tata Motors offers an 8-year engine and battery warranty for 160,000 km for both the Nexon EV and Tigor EV. The Tigor EV develops a maximum power output of 74 hp. and a maximum torque of 170 Nm, and the Nexon EV – 129 hp. and 245 Nm. Both vehicles have an automatic transmission. The Tigor EV takes 060 km / h in 5.7 seconds, while the Nexon EV is faster by over just a second to show the same.
The Connected Suite powered by Tata’s iRA opens up a similar set of features. Tata claims the Nexon EV has 35 connected automotive functions through the ZConnect app, while the Tigor EV has over 30. Connected automotive functions include remote control and diagnostics, remote commands, vehicle health tracking, safety, driving and travel analytics, and services on location-based.
The Tata Nexon EV is available as a subscription module in select cities starting at Rs 29,999 per month. This could also be extended to the upcoming Tigor EV. The Nexon EV passed the crash test with a 5-star rating, and the Tigor EV also received a 4-star rating.
