Ever since the Tata Tigor EV has arrived, all eyes are on the compact sedan. And if you ask us, the hype around the vehicle is totally justified. After all, amongst all the electric vehicles for sale in India, the Tigor EV seems to be one of the most attractive options. So here’s why the Tata Tigor EV should be your first Electric Vehicle.
The Most Affordable EV
First things first, the Tata Tigor EV is the most affordable electric passenger vehicle up for sale in India. With price starting from Rs. 11.99 Lakhs (Ex-Showroom), the Tigor EV’s aggressive price tag does wonder for the vehicle. Breaking all price thresholds, the Tigor EV is indeed one of the best electric vehicles in India and should definitely be your first electric vehicle.
Tata’s Top-Notch Technology
At a time when OEMs are still shying away from developing electric versions of their iconic cars, the Tata Tigor EV comes as Tata’s second electric offering after the Nexon EV. This means that the Tigor EV comes with the added advantage of being a thoroughly researched product that is equipped with the best of technology that has been thoroughly tested out practically. This makes the Tigor EV a practically first choice when it comes to electric vehicles, as the compact sedan isn’t just a gimmick but a true blue electric vehicle.
Unlike the earlier Tigor EV that was available to government and fleet operators, this version of the Tigor EV is primarily focused on personal mobility. This means that the Tigor EV is practically designed keeping in mind sheer performance. The spare too is stacked vertically to liberate the boot, while half of the battery is stacked under the floor to provide further practicality. The battery pack can be recharged in two ways; with the complementary 15A charger taking about 8.5 hours, while the 25A fast charger taking about 65 minutes to pump up 80% of juice. And with a tested range of 306 km per charge, the Tigor EV is irresistible.
Much like the Nexon EV, the Tigor EV too offers peppy performance to the users. With a permanent asynchronous motor, propelling the front wheel, with the sport mode on the sedan can sprint from 0 to 60 kmph in just 5.7 seconds! And with Tata’s Ziptron underpinning both cars, Tata’s EV inventory is hot and we mean it.
For a person who is all into adopting an electric vehicle, looks aren’t the deciding factor, since there already is a dearth of affordable electric vehicles in India as of yet. But uplifting the Tata Tigor’s case is its good looks which are further enhanced by EV element here and there.
So this is why the Tigor EV should totally be your first electric vehicle. Stay pinned to the GoMechanic blog for everything automotive.
