The much awaited Tata Tiago EV hatchback has been unveiled by Tata Motors in India. The new EV, which will rank below the Tigor EV compact sedan, will serve as Tata Motors’ entry point into the EV market. The hatchback was one of the brand’s best-selling vehicles in its ICE incarnation. It is packed with Tata’s Ziptron powertrain technology, along with a sizeable motor, making it ideal for city drives with a not-so-small form factor.
Tata Tiago EV Price And Availability
The base XE edition of the Tata Tiago EV, which comes with the smaller 19.2kWh battery, is available in India for an introductory price of ₹8.5 lakh (ex-showroom). The top-of-the-line XZ+ Tech LUX option with a larger 24kWh battery pack has a price tag of ₹11.79 lakhs (ex-showroom). There will only be two battery options for the EV, however the charging methods will differ based on the battery size and model. Tata will begin accepting bookings on October 10, 2022, and deliveries are anticipated to start in January 2023.
Tata Tiago EV Specifications
The Tata Tiago hatchback, which has been offered in India since 2016, serves as the foundation for the Tata Tiago EV. The company has switched out the petrol engine for an electric drivetrain while still maintaining the same platform. A blocked-out face, an updated air dam with Tata’s distinctive Tri-Arrow pattern design, electric blue highlights, and other visual alterations have all been made to the Tiago EV just like its bigger cousin, the Tata Nexon EV.
