After getting success in the sales of Tata Nexon EV, Tata Motors has officially launched the ziptron powered Tata Tiago. Growing environmental concerns and the need for sustainable resources has led to people’s inclination towards electric vehicles. Ziptron powered Tata Tiago will expand the company’s portfolio. This EV has got a fresh cosmetic update along with the revised powertrain.
This EV will be the facelift version of Tata Tiago launched last year. Although the fleet version of the Tata Tiago EV was already revealed last month, it does not offer the specifications as they will be in the ziptron powered Tiago EV. This fleet version was rebranded as xPres-T EV later on.
Its exterior features include a glossy black front grille that was earlier a tri-arrow pattern in the fuel variant. This faux grille has the Tata badge mounted in the center and has contouring with a blue-colored strip underneath. This trip with blue highlights is extended inside the projector LED headlights.
With an identical silhouette, it has a reprofiled front bumper with round fog lamps and integrated LED DRLs. This EV will ride on 15-inch alloy wheels with a design featuring blue accents.
To differentiate the EV model from the standard one of Tata Tiago, it has some blue highlights in its interior. It will feature a seven-inch touch screen infotainment display with Android auto-connect and Apple carplay, automatic climate control, multi-function steering wheel with control buttons. Tiago EV has no such visual updates except for the blue-colored lettering and mild detailing.
It also features eight speakers, a turn-by-turn navigation system, a rear parking assist, and many more. Moving on to the safety features, it has an anti-lock braking system, EBD, impact-absorbing body structure, and cornering stability.
Moving onto the specifications of Tata Tiago EV, it has a 26 kWh battery pack which delivers Max power of 75 PS and a peak torque of 170 Nm. It offers both fast charging and standard charging options. The standard charger charges the battery up to 80% in 8.5 hours, whereas a fast charger can do the same in 60 minutes. This battery will deliver a Tiago EV with a driving range of around 250 km, making it even more suitable for city driving.
We can expect the price tag to be around 10 lakh, and Tata Tiago EV will be available in three variants.
In terms of competition, it has no direct rivals yet. However, with the launch of the KUV 100 EV, Tata Tiago EV will compete against it.
