Tata Motors has partnered with self-drive rental company Zoomcar to offer the all-electric version of the Tigor in Pune. The first batch of Tigor EVs was flagged off from Concorde Motors, Baner. Over the next year, 500 electric vehicles are expected to be deployed on the Zoomcar platform in 20 cities.
The Tigor EV is based on the regular Tigor compact sedan. It uses an AC 3-phase electric motor, which produces 40 BHP @ 4,500 rpm. It has a 216 Ah, 72V battery. The car has a claimed top speed of 100 km/h and a range of 130 km on a single charge.
In July 2018, Tata Motors supplied 10 Tigor EVs to Cognizant’s Hyderbad campus. In 2017, state-run Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) had also placed an order for the electric cars.
