Tata Tigor electric car spotted with yellow number plate in Hyderabad
Nov 3, 2018
Tata Tigor electric is not on sale for the general public as of now. Hat tip
to automotive enthusiast Kiran Vellore for sharing exclusive photos of Tigor
electric with yellow plate.
Tata Tigor Electric Vehicle (EV) is currently available only to select
employees of Energy Efficiency Service Limited (EESL), a Government of India
undertaking. However, this may change in the future as Tata Motors is
planning to sell Tigor EV to all customers who may be interested. Commercial
launch of Tigor EV will be done in a phased manner, starting with specific
cities to begin with.
Only those cities that have proper infrastructure to charge and service EVs
will be considered for launching Tigor EV. Tata Motors has not provided any
timeline as to when Tigor EV will be made commercially available. But in
spite of this, Tata Tigor EV wearing yellow number plate has now been
spotted on the streets of Hyderabad.
Talking about the company’s plans to launch Tigor EV on a commercial scale,
Mayank Pareek- President of Passenger Vehicle business, Tata Motors, said
that only a few cities will be covered initially. Tata Motors has been in
talks with some customers and the response has been good. He said that
electric powertrain can also be added to other cars such as Zest, Bolt, and
Describing the current problems, Mayank said that even top cities such as
Mumbai do not have the infrastructure needed to support EVs. So, it does not
make sense to sell EVs if charging infrastructure is not available. Tata
Motors focuses on customer satisfaction and would not sell EVs in a city
that does not have proper infrastructure. It will be like selling a car at a
location that does not have fuel pump, Mayank said.
Tata Motors has not yet specified whether commercially available Tigor EV
will have the same specs as the one supplied to EESL. Tigor EV sold to EESL
measures 3992 mm in length, 1677 mm in width and 1537 mm in height. It has a
wheelbase of 2450 mm and ground clearance of 170 mm.
Engine used is a 3-phase AC induction motor that delivers 30 kW (40 PS) @
4500 RPM. Powered by 216 Ah, 72V batteries, the engine is rated to have zero
tailpipe emissions. Normal charging time is 360 minutes and fast charging
can be achieved in around 90 minutes. Tigor EV has a top speed of 100 kmph
and it can run 130 km on a full charge ...
