Tata Tigor EV likely to launch next week

It’s official: the redesigned Tata Tigor EV with Ziptron technology from Tata Motors will be unveiled in full on August 18, 2021. Tata released the Tigor EV for government agencies and fleet buyers a few years ago, and in 2019, it was also made accessible to individual buyers, although it received few takers due to its fairly limited range and performance. Tata, on the other hand, now intends to allay those fears by releasing a redesigned Tigor EV equipped with Ziptron technology.

Technically, the Tigor EV was never cancelled; instead, it was rebranded the Xpres-T and positioned as a fleet-only option a few weeks ago. Despite the redesign, the electric compact sedan retained its older 72-volt architecture and 21.5 kWh battery pack. Tata’s Ziptron technology, which debuted with the Tata Nexon EV, has significantly superior capabilities to the Xpres-powertrain. T’s

Tata’s Ziptron-powered vehicles will be equipped with a high-voltage 300+ volt permanent magnet synchronous electric motor, which outperforms the Tigor EV’s 72-volt AC induction-type motor in terms of performance. Tata put a larger 30.2 kWh lithium-ion battery pack in the Nexon EV, and while it is unclear whether the Tigor EV will have a similar-size battery, if it does, it is apparent that its range will be substantially higher than the Xpres-213 T’s km claimed range, and likely to exceed 300 km. Tata Motors previously stated that Ziptron vehicles would have a range of at least 250 kilometers, thus the new Tigor EV’s range will undoubtedly exceed that figure.

Furthermore, Ziptron technology will allow the Tigor EV to be fast-charged from 0 to 80 percent in roughly an hour, which is a major improvement over the Xpres-T, which takes about twice as long.

It Is Expected to launch next Week

The new Tata Tigor EV is expected to be released in the coming weeks, at an opportune moment when several states, including Maharashtra and Gujarat, have announced substantial incentives for EV purchasers. Maharashtra, in example, is now offering up to Rs 2.5 lakh in subsidies for electric cars and SUVs, which the new Tata Tigor EV is anticipated to benefit tremendously from.
