Let’s see how much extra will you have to shell out for the Tiago EV as opposed to buying the petrol version and how different their daily running costs are

Tata Tiago EV Vs Tata Tiago Petrol

Tata has launched India’s most affordable electric car, the Tiago EV and its introductory prices range from Rs 8.49 lakh to Rs 11.79 lakh (ex-showroom). With this, the Tiago can now be had in three different versions - Petrol, CNG and Electric. 

Here’s a brief variant-wise comparison between the on-road prices of the Tiago EV and Tiago petrol-AMT. 

Variants (on-road prices Bangalore)

Key Takeaways: 

  • The AMT transmission is available from the XT variant of the Tiago petrol. However, if we compare the difference between XTA and the EV’s base-spec XE, the difference is around a lakh rupees. 

  • The XT variant of the Tiago EV, when compared with the ICE version, is costlier by up to Rs 2.65 lakh. If you’re going for the 19.2kWh variant, the difference is around Rs 1.7 lakh. 

  • In the case of the top-spec XZ+ variant, the difference goes up to Rs 3.36 lakh.

The Tiago EV comes with two battery pack options - 19.2kWh and 24kWh - with a claimed driving range of 250km and 315km, respectively. With a DC fast charger, the Tiago EV can be charged from 10 to 80 per cent in 57 minutes. Around three and a half hours will be required for the same when a 7.2kW AC charger is used, while the smaller battery takes less time, around 2.6 hours.
