Tata Motors Ltd. unveiled a new version of its electric sedan, the Tigor.ev, with an extended range of 315 kilometres and other enhancements.
It features four models that are priced between Rs 12.5 lakh and Rs 13.75 lakh.
“Now available in a new magnetic red colour option, the Tigor.ev accentuates the feeling of luxury and comfort with new additions like leatherette upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, rain-sensing wipers, auto headlamps, and cruise control,” the company said in a release.
The vehicle also has enhancements such as multi-mode regeneration, connected car technology—Zconnect, smartwatch connectivity, iTPMS and tyre puncture repair kit, which will be offered as standard across the range, it said.
“The EV industry is witnessing tremendous growth and is gaining popularity in the Indian market. With 50,000 Tata EVs on the road and an 89% market share, we at Tata Motors are solely driving this shift with our extensive portfolio,” Shailesh Chandra, managing director, Tata Passenger Electric Mobility and Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles, said in the statement.
The newly launched Tigor EV has already received over 20,000 bookings in a month since its launch, he said.
It comes five years after the company launched the first electric batch of Tigor. The first lot were part of Energy Efficiency Services Ltd.’s tender for 10,000 electric sedans. Tata Motors had won the bid for the first 350 orders.
The current Tigor.ev owners will get a free feature update pack through a software update.
Additionally, the existing Tata XZ+ and XZ+ DT customers can also get a smartwatch connectivity upgrade.
