Top 5 Things To Expect From The Tata Tiago EV
Upon launch, it will be the most affordable mass-market electric car on sale in India
This world EV day, Tata Motors announced the Tiago EV which will be the third model from the carmaker to go the electric way. The carmaker will unveil it on September 28 and we’re expecting it to be launched soon thereafter. Here are the five things we’re expecting from the electric hatchback:
Likely To Get Different Specs From The Tigor EV
Unlike the ICE-powered counterparts, the Tiago and Tigor EV. might not share the exact specs when it comes to their electric powertrain. The Tigor EV uses a 26kWh battery pack which claims to deliver a range of 306 kilometres. However, the long battery pack might reduce the Tiago’s boot space, which suggests that the battery pack might be smaller. However, we’re expecting the range to be similar, just above 300 kilometres. With that, it could also be offered with a less powerful motor than the Tigor EV’s 75PS/170Nm.
Design Changes Inside And Out
The Tata Tiago EV could see subtle visual changes to its exterior, mainly to differentiate it from the ICE-powered counterpart. It could get a tweaked front grille, new colours, blue coloured accents all over, and of course the EV badging. For reference, you see similar changes on the Tigor EV compared to its petrol version.
Changes to the cabin are also expected to be minor, including the addition of blue accents and a different EV-specific seat upholstery.
In terms of features as well, we’re just expecting some minor additions like connected car technology. The Tiago already comes loaded with features such as projector headlamps, a 7-inch touchscreen system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a digitised instrument cluster, push-button start-stop, and automatic AC.
