Tata Tigor Electric Vehicle Production Begins; Commercial Launch Within 2
December 6, 2017 Yatharth Chauhan
Tata Motors today rolled out the first batch of the Tata Tigor Electric
Vehicle (EV) at the hands of N Chandrasekaran, Chairman, Tata Sons and Tata
Motors, from its Sanand facility in Gujarat. Present on this momentous
occasion were Ratan N Tata, Chairman Emeritus, Tata Group, Guenter Butschek,
CEO & MD, Tata Motors and members of the Tata Motors Executive Committee.
The Tigor EVs are being manufactured for the Indian Government’s prestigious
order of electric vehicles from the Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL),
an entity under the Ministry of Power.
Tata Motors had qualified as L1 bidder in the midst of stiff competition and
won the tender of 10,000 electric cars floated by EESL in September 2017.
For phase 1, Tata Motors is required to deliver 250 Tigor EVs, for which it
has received a LoA. For an additional 100 cars, the LoA is expected to be
issued shortly by EESL. The electric drive systems for this prestigious
order have been developed and supplied by Electra EV – a company established
to develop and supply electric drive systems for the automotive sector.
Tata Tigor Electric Vehicle Launch Date
The Tigor Electric Car won’t launch before the last quarter of next year.
However, the company will supply 10,000 units of the electric car to the
Government of India over the next 2 years. So, basically, you’ll soon start
seeing this car on public roads. In the first batch, only 500 cars will be
delivered to the Government. Also, we expect to see the Tigor electric
vehicle at the Delhi Auto Expo 2018.
The 10,000 units of the electric Tigor will replace the petrol- and
Diesel-powered car that the government officials have been using. Currently,
estimates suggest that there are as many as 5 lakh Government cars in use.
Tata Tigor Electric Vehicle Price in India
Excluding GST Rs 10.16 lakh
Including GST Rs 11.2 lakh
In the winning bid, Tata Motors quoted a price of Rs 10.16 lakh per car to
the Government. This price is exclusive of the GST. It will cost Rs 11.2
lakh if you factor in the GST. The Tigor EV won’t go on sale at least before
a year. We are pretty sure the company will initially focus on delivering
the 10,000 units to the Government first. Also, there are good chances that
this electric car will cost lesser when it goes on sale in near future. We
say this because the Government would want to push sales of EVs by offering
huge subsidies and rebates. This will help achieve the all-electric car
target by 2030. High sales of the Tigor EV will also motivate other car
companies to come up with EVs.

Tata Tigor Electric Vehicle Specs
Specifications Tigor EV
Max. Power 29.8 kW @ 55 kmph
Max. 30 Mins Power 12 kW @ 45 kmph
Kerb Weight 1516 KGs
While the regular Tigor is on sale with 1.2-litre Petrol and 1.05-litre
Diesel engines, the Tigor EV gets a 29.8 kW (39.95 hp) electric motor. This
means that the Tigor Electric car is less powerful than the Tiago EV, which
offers a peak power of 85 kW (113.94 hp). In terms of dimensions, there is
no change. This means that the upcoming EV is 3,992 mm long, 1,677 mm wide
and 1,537 mm tall. It has a 2,450 mm wheelbase. These figures are the same
as those of the regular Tata Tigor. The Tigor electric car will become a
direct rival to the Mahindra eVerito, which offers slightly more power (30.5
kW or 41 hp). However, let’s not forget that the Tigor is almost 200 KGs
Tata Tigor Electric Vehicle Range
The rechargeable batteries will have a range of 100 KMs. While not much, but
it’s still enough for usage in an urban environment.

the new model will be powerful enough for our kind of usage? Share your
