Tata Tiago.ev: Another Dark Horse from the Indian Carmaker?
It is a compact hatchback and that’s why is capable enough of handling everyday city affairs. In terms of design, Tata Tiago.ev is similar to the standard model but what’s under the skin? Well, let’s discuss that.
Tata Motors says it has used the Ziptron technology, which is nothing but the brand’s in-house developed architecture to help the EVs withstand all the extreme conditions, especially found in India. To power the Tiago.ev, two battery pack options including a 24kWh battery for more range and a 19.2kWh battery for city driving is available. Other than this it will be powered by a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor that churns out a decent 74 horsepower and 114Nm of torque.
For added convenience, the hatchback even gets two drive modes, namely – City and Sport and there’s even a four-level regen to churn as much range as the driver can. Charging the Tiago.ev is a wide variety of chargers including a 3.3kW AC, 7.2kW AC and even a DC charger for quick juice up.
Tiago.ev shares its platform with the regular model that scored 4 stars at the Global NCAP. This way, we can expect the electric counterpart to be as safe as the ICE-powered hatchback. For added safety, the EV comes loaded with front airbags, a tyre pressure monitoring system and ABS as standard.
Giving its customers a stress-free experience, Tata Motors is offering 8 years/1,60,000 km warranty on the motor as well as the battery pack.
