2021 Tata Tigor EV real-world test review | Coolest City Car!?! | AutoCharge India
They had launched a tata, nexon ev and this time around, they have got an electrified version of the ongoing compact, silent tata tigor eagle, ravi isnt, something new for us. It has been in the market since quite a long, but was only available for the commercial buyers and the fleet operators, but this time tata has decided to bring it for passenger vehicles as well. So how well do it fit in our ever evolving market lets see? This is bishop and welcome to autocharge india. Music tata has sent us a tiger ev for real world test review, and we are happy to announce that we are starting off with a video review by testing an electric vehicle, which is indeed going to be a future mobility Music to the design front of the Tigor ev, it is unmistakably tata and quite identical to the standard trigger with elements differentiating. It are the blue inserts at the nose around the fog lamps wheel caps, apart from the ev badges which are finished in blue speaking, of which the signature, teal blue, shade and the black roof are the exclusive for the tigor ev Music ev comes with almost all The features you would expect in a compact sedan, which includes 7 inch touchscreen with android, auto and upper carplay, and a digital instrument cluster. You also get an iraq connected car tech, which offers features like intrusion, alert, remote, immobilization, geo, fencing time, fencing, remote cooling trip, analysis, etc.
However, this being a test vehicle, we didnt got a chance to access all this feature, but we have used it in the past and it does work flawlessly. Music, Music, like the exterior things on the interior hasnt changed much except for the small handful of cosmetic beads and addition of features tata introduced. The dual tone: black and white dashboard with a tigor facelift and same, is seen on the ev2. The only changes here are the blue ascent on the dashboard and the new seat fabric design, not to mention the special design graphics in the instrument cluster for electrified trigger Music. Before we get to the driving lets, get some factual things right. Permanent magnet synchronous motor puts out 74 bhp and 170 newton meter of torque, which is significantly lower than the nexons 127 bhp and 245 newton meter. There are four transmission modes to choose from d r n n s, d mode is more designed for a city driving condition while things get spicier when you slot it into s mode, which is sports mode by providing extra power on tap. The throttle response is much sharper and you get a strong surge of power which comes at an expense of rapid decrease in battery charge level. Music out on the open road d mode is adequate for regular drives. You can cruise comfortably on the expressway, complemented by firmer suspension and added weight of motor and battery in the air, which further lowers the center of gravity.
However, if you need to execute an overtaking maneuver quickly, support comes in handy youll, also find yourself engaging s mode whenever you are in the mood for some fun. The tigor ev feels peppy in sports mode. Even on the open road power is delivered strongly till 100. Kmph, after which it starts to taper off the tigor ev, stop speed is limited to an indicated. 122 kmph and progress from 110 to 120 kilometer per hour is quite slow, must add that electric cars arent good at high speed cruising from the range point of view with that said, high speed stability is very good and you will be doing 110 to 120 kmph On the express, without feeling nervous at all, get on some twisty roads and youll appreciate a stiffer suspension. The car feels agile and you can carry good speed into corners. The suspension setup does complement the chases well, and the tigor ev holds its line nicely by family seed and standard. Changing the direction on back to back corners is no problem either. Talking of the steering the electric power assisted steering, is a nice unit and is super light at parking speeds. The turning radius of 5.1 meter is user friendly and you can maneuver the car easily with the gentle inputs on the steering. It weighs up adequately as you gain speed. However, the eps is dead and there is not much feel or feedback from it coming to the brakes. The tigor ev get disc brakes at the front, and the drum brakes at the rare, the performance in general is satisfactory.
However, we feel that the white tires would definitely improve the braking performance of the car. Another sole point is that, like most evs, the brake pedal has a spongy and rubbery feel it does take a while to get used to Music. One of the highlight of the safety feature is that the car will always start in the end mode, engage d. Take your foot off the brake pedal and the tigor ev gets off the line in a perfectly smooth manner, crawling at 6, kmph, its very linear and without any jogs. With 170 newton meter of torque, available from the zero rpm tata claims, the tigor ev has a maximum restart gradibility of 29 degrees, meaning the car can crawl forward from a standstill on the incline of up to 29 degrees with ease Music. This brings us to the conclusion price at rupees, 11.99 to 13.49 lakh ex showroom. Tigor ev is the most affordable electric vehicle on sale right now, while for the masses, this price tag might still far from being called as a most affordable. Tigar is better off as secondary vehicle for daily commutes and city runabout, and not a primary vehicle, given the lack of infrastructure and irregularity in power supply in tier 2 city.
