Charging & Range of Tata Tigor EV Review

The new Tigor EV’s battery capacity is 26kWh (for reference, the Xpress-T gets two sizes: 16.5kWh and 21.5kWh). It can be fast charged and on a 25kW DC charger, it can go from 0-80 percent in 65 minutes, while a standard 15A plug point will take 8 hours and 45 minutes for the same.

With the bigger battery, Tata claims an ARAI-certified range of 306km. While we will put it through our instrumented road test, our initial drive in and around Mumbai city saw us get between 1.9 to 2.1 km for every 1 percent of battery drop, so expect a range of around 180 to 200km. This isn’t enough for far-off weekend destinations but it’s certainly more than sufficient for daily city use. Do remember that if you dip below 25 percent on the battery, system power is reduced to help range.

Behind the wheel, the Tigor does feel like a proper electric car when compared to the Xpress-T. Performance is better but it’s not electrifying like we’ve come to expect from bigger – and yes, more expensive – EVs. That initial kick from an electric motor’s instant torque is missing and acceleration is flat and very sedate. Put your foot down and you get the feeling that the car’s system is carefully metering out its energy. The normal Drive mode is good only if you’re keeping pace with city traffic, if you want to hurry or even overtake, you’ll have to shift to Sport mode where the system makes full use of the 75hp, 170Nm motor to give you acceleration that’s peppy.

Tata says they’ve tuned the system to deliver a very measured rate of acceleration – keeping in mind that the car will mainly be used in the city – and also, naturally, to preserve charge. In our initial testing, we clocked a time of 14.88sec for the 0-100kph dash in Sport mode and an excruciatingly slow 29.28sec in Drive mode.

Brake energy recuperation is available, but it isn’t strong like in other EVs, and retardation on throttle lift-off feels similar to regular ICE cars. The regen level is also not adjustable and the mild intensity is essentially due to the smaller sized motor that has a limited capacity for regeneration.

Comfort Ride & Handling Tata Tigor EV Review

Tata Motors’ cars are usually high on comfort and are known to keep their occupants in comfort. The new Tigor EV too does that to a certain extent. However, The suspension is set up more towards keeping the driver happy and this results in a slightly bumpier ride. More on this later.

In terms of space though, the Tigor scores really high. The cabin is spacious and airy. The space up front is great anyway, and with the drivers’ seat adjusted to my height and usage requirements, we headed to check out the rear seat. Turns out that it had a lot more knee room than we had expected.

Despite having a sloping roofline, the headroom was great, but we did wish for more under-thigh support. The Tigor EV is very practical and features several cubbyholes across the car. The front doors can hold a couple of half-litre bottles while the rear door can hold a 1-litre bottle.

The Tata Tigor EV boasts a boot space of around 316-litres which is pretty spacious. However, there are two things that worry us a bit. The spare wheel no longer sits in the footwell, but is placed in the boot. This eats into boot space quite a bit. Additionally, there is no option to fold the rear seat down to increase load-carrying capabilities.

Our Opinion

Tigor EV is sandwiched between two most Tata Motors important launched, possibly in the decade. Safari is strengthening SUV image at the top of the table while entry-level Punch is all set to bring in volumes in festive debut. Meanwhile, Tata Motors is likely to march ahead of rivals in the electrification race, riding on Tigor EV-Nexon EV duo.
