According to Mr. Shailesh Chandra, President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors – “EVs are fast gaining popularity on the back of rising comfort of customers, as the barriers to adoption are being overcome and due to growing preference for environmentally friendly solutions. This has been spearheaded by our very own Nexon EV, which today is the most popular EV in the Indian market. The increasing support from the central and the state Government, providing subsidies and a conducive environment for EVs to grow, inspires us to expand our EV offerings to our customers. We are ecstatic to launch the Tigor EV today, powered by the capable Ziptron Technology. The Tigor EV is a perfect option for all aspiring sedan buyers who are looking to own a vehicle that is technologically advanced, comfortable and high on safety standards, while also being an environmental-friendly commute, making it an irresistible choice for the buyers to #EvolveToElectric.”

The community expected Tata to be more aggressive with the pricing. Also a 4 kWh reduction in battery pack compared to the Nexon EV was disappointing for many. Also Tata continues to market the ARAI range to people, which again is concerning. Many people will get less than 200 km range and then vent their frustrations in social media. It seems Tata has not learnt from the past here.
Regarding Tata's pricing of electric cars, it looks like they want to ensure the EV's they sell will cost more than Rs 10 Lakhs, that way their Rs 7-9 lakh ICE Car business wont get effected.
But we applaud Tata for offering more EV choices and having a clear EV vision. May the Tigor EV give lot of smiles to many owners in the coming years!
