Tata Motors, on November 23, introduced the new Tigor.ev sedan, which keeps to its "New Forever" design philosophy and has an increased range of 315 km (ARAI approved).
With additions like Multi-Mode Regen, Connected Car Technology-Zconnect, smartwatch connectivity, iTPMS, and a tyre puncture repair kit, which will be provided as standard across the range, it also offers customers a more technologically advanced experience, the company said.
Tata Motors was quoting at Rs 427.75, up Rs 3.10, or 0.73 percent.
According to Mr. Shailesh Chandra, Managing Director, Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd. and Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd., “The EV industry is witnessing tremendous growth and is gaining popularity in the Indian market. With 50,000 Tata EVs on road and an 89% market share (YTD), we at Tata Motors are solely driving this shift with our extensive portfolio. The recently introduced Tiago.ev – a product launched to democratize the EV market, received a tremendous response and we are elated to announce that it has garnered over 20K bookings in just a month since its launch."
"In line with our New Forever philosophy, it is now time to upgrade the Tigor.ev with more tech and premium features. Our deep insights on the customer driving pattern received from the 600 million kilometers covered on Indian roads has helped us understand and deliver better efficiency and range. We are happy to present to you the new Tigor.ev with an extended range of 315km (ARAI certified) – More Tech, More Luxe, More.ev.”
The new version builds on the success of the earlier Tigor EV, which is already deployed with several fleets and government departments, Tata Motors' Head-Sales Electric Vehicle Business, Ashesh Dhar, was quoted in a statement.
The first generation Tigor EV made its way out of Tata Motor’s plant in Gujarat few years ago. As part of its deal with the Indian government-run Energy Efficiency Services Ltd (EESL), Tata was expected to supply 10,000 electric sedans to the government enterprise.
