2021 Tata Tigor EV: Exterior
The new Tata Tigor EV looks exactly similar to the regular version of the Tigor sedan. However, to differentiate it from the latter, it comes with a few visual alterations. These include closed gloss black panel in place of the front grille, blue accents below the headlamps, front fascia, fog lamp surrounds and wheel caps. While the Tigor EV misses out on alloy wheels, it does retain the projector headlamp assembly and daytime running LEDs near fog lamps from the standard Tigor.
2021 Tata Tigor EV: Interior
Like the exterior, the cabin of the Tata Tigor EV is exactly the same as the regular Tigor. Here too, once can find blue highlights around the AC vents, instrument console and seat fabric, which help it in differentiating from the cabin of the standard Tigor. Another significant change here happens to be the replacement of gear lever with a new rotary knob, which serves as drive mode selector.
The interior of the Tata Tigor EV is equipped with features like fully digital instrument console, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple Carplay and Android Auto, automatic climate control, push start-stop button, Harman-sourced 8-speaker audio system and iRA connected car tech.
For safety, the Tata Tigor EV packs in dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, reverse parking sensors and camera. The Tata Tigor EV has also become the first ever electric car to undergo Global NCAP safety tests, in which it has secured a 4-star rating.
2021 Tata Tigor EV: Powertrain
Apart from major design changes, the Tata Tigor EV has also received a major overhaul when it comes to powertrain. The Ziptron technology from Nexon EV has made its way in the Tigor EV as well, with the car having a combination of 26 kWh lithium-ion battery and a permanent magnet synchronous motor. This motor is capable of producing 75 bhp of power and 170 Nm of torque, figures which are much higher than the version it has replaced (41 bhp of power and 105 Nm of torque).
Tata Motors also claims a maximum driving range of 306 km for the Tigor EV, which is substantially higher than 213 km of the previous version of the car. Available with a standard warranty of 8 years/1,60,000 km, the battery takes 60 minutes to charge from 0 to 80 percent using fast charging solution.
