Tata Motors has wiped out its latest electric vehicle – the updated Tata Tigor EV with Ziptron technology. Reservations for Tigor EV Ziptron are now open and the launch is scheduled for August 31st. Tata Motors today unveiled a review of its latest electric car, which aims to further strengthen the company’s position in the country’s electric vehicle segment and is set to become India’s most affordable electric car.
Technically, the Tigor EV was never discontinued — a few weeks ago, it was converted to the Xpres-T and placed only in the Navy’s bid. However, despite the facelift, the compact electric sedan continued its older 72-volt architecture and 21.5 kWh battery. Tata’s Ziptron technology – introduced with the Tata Nexon EV – features much better features than the Xpres-T transmission.
Tata’s Ziptron-powered vehicles feature a high-voltage over 300-volt synchronous electromagnetic motor that is ahead of the 72-volt AC induction-type motor in series performance. In the Nexon EV, Tata installed a larger 30.2 kWh lithium-ion battery, and the Tigor EV Ziptron has a smaller, 26 kWh lithium-ion battery.
Tata Motors did not mention the range of the Tigor EV Ziptron in the presentation, but while the Tigor Ziptron is unlikely to match the range of the Nexon EV at 312 km, it is clear that its range is much larger than the Xpres-T’s 213 km claim. Tata Motors had previously revealed that Ziptron vehicles have a range of at least 250 kilometers, so the range of the new Tigor EV is sure to violate this figure. Both the battery and the engine have an eight-year 1,600,000-kilometer warranty.
The engine of the new Tata Tigor EV produces 75 hp and 170 Nm of torque, which is lower than the engine of the Nexon EV, but is still a significant leap over the Xpres-T (34 hp and 65 Nm more). -60 km / h 5.7 seconds. In addition, Ziptron technology allows the Tigor EV to be quickly charged to 0-80% in about an hour; a significant improvement over the Xpres-T, which takes about twice as long.
In terms of equipment, the Tata Tigor EV Ziptron comes standard with automatic air conditioning and a portable charging cable, and also comes with a height-adjustable driver’s seat, foldable ORVMs, a 7.0-inch Harman touchscreen Infotainment system with four speakers and four tweeters, and iRA a combined car kit with more than 30 combined car functions. The boot has a capacity of 316 liters, which is up to 375 liters if the buyer decides to give up the spare wheel.
The cherry cake has a CCS2 charging standard with which Tigor EV is compatible and which gives it access to India’s rapidly expanding EV charging network. And on top of all that, the Tata Tigor EV is likely to undercut the price of the Tata Nexon EV, which is currently priced from 13.99 million rubles to 16.85 million rubles (ex-showroom), by a considerable margin.
