Followed which, Tata bagged order for 350 units of Tigor EV from the Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL).

Why are we talking on the Tigor Electric vehicle as Tata is all set to launch the Electric Vehicles in India for the general consumers. According to reports from The Hindu, in a recent visit of Tata Group officials with the Telengana State chief minister N. Chandrababu Naidu. Tata Motors is working on electric vehicles in selected nine cities and would be launching electric cars in next two months.

The launch would be phase manner to overcome the issues of less or no availability of charging station in some cities. Tata is expected to launch the Tigor as well as the Tiago Electric versions.
The design is expected to be intact as seen in the 2018 Auto expo with blue inserts in the grills and the fog lamps in the front, “EV” stickering in the side fenders, EV badge in blue at the rear and replaces the chrome in the boot lit with blue-chrome strip. The 15 inch alloy wheels too get blue inserts. which does differentiates the Tigor EV. The Interiors do have few changes with blue accent which replaces the piano black inserts in the central infotainment system and the AC vents.

The batter of the car gets fully charged in less than six hours while using a standard charger. If charged with a fast charger, then it will get 80% of charge in about 90 minutes.
