Tata Tiago EV launch soon; could be the most affordable EV in India

0

Upcoming Tata Tiago EV will be the only electric hatchback on sale here until the MG’s compact EV arrives next year.

On the occasion of 2022 World EV Day today, Tata Motors has announced another addition to its electric vehicle line-up – the Tiago EV, which will go on sale in the coming months. The Tiago EV, which was shown as a concept first at an event in the UK and later in India at 2018 Auto Expo, will sit below the Tigor EV in the brand’s electrified line-up. 

  • Tiago EV likely to share powertrains with the Tigor EV
  • Tata Motors to launch 10 EVs in different segments

Shailesh Chandra, managing director of Passenger Car Division at Tata Motors, said, “As we accelerate our future journey, we are committed to launch 10 EVs in different product segments, body styles and affordability levels.” 

Tata Tiago EV: Expected powertrain options

While official details on the new Tata Tiago EV’s specifications are yet to be out, we expect it to share its EV platform and powertrain with the Tigor EV, which is already on sale. Tata Motors has not one but three options that are already available on the Tigor EV and the Tigor X-Press T EV for fleet operators.

Starting the proceedings could be the entry-level motor good for 41hp and 105Nm of torque. This motor is available with two battery pack options: a 16.5kWh version that does 165km of claimed range, and a 21.5kWh iteration that is good for 213km of claimed range on the X-Press T EV.  

The third and more powerful version that is available only on the Tigor EV for private buyers is the Ziptron architecture with a permanent magnet synchronous electric motor producing 75hp and 170Nm. It comes with a 26kWh lithium-ion battery pack; it allows fast charging and 306km of claimed range.

Interestingly, the Tigor EV has a split battery pack with one part of the battery positioned in the boot. It remains to be seen how Tata Motors packages this set-up for the Tiago EV.

With affordable pricing, the Tiago EV can be a game changer not just for Tata Motors but also for the mass-market EV segment in India. Expect more details on the Tiago EV to be announced in the coming months.
