Default Re: Tata Tigor EV priced at Rs. 9.99 lakh

I spotted a Tigor EV on Mount Road at Chennai today, the green plates were a giveaway - the EESL badging was at the rear of the car but when I ran the registration plate on Vahan, it showed that the car belonged to Concorde Motors Ltd.

Default Tata Motors to provide 500 Tigor EVs to Prakriti E-Mobility

The first batch of more than 160 units of Tata Tigor EVs is expected to hit the road by January 2020, claims the automaker.
Quote:

Prakriti E-Mobility Private Limited is an EV based taxi service co-founded by Nimish Trivedi, Vikas Bansal and Rajeev Tiwari, which will deploy the Tigor EVs on its app-based platform EVERA. The EV fleet will provide mobility service in Delhi-NCR, informs the company.

Commenting on this partnership, Shailesh Chandra, President, Electric Mobility Business & Corporate Strategy, Tata Motors Ltd, said, “Prakriti E-Mobility Solutions is a valuable partner on our path of social responsibility and environmental sustainability.

This is great news. Tata already had a similar tie-up with Lithium Urban Technologies to provide 400 Tigor EVs and 100 upcoming EVs like Nexon and Altroz.

https://auto.ndtv.com/news/tata-moto...logies-2134333

These fleet orders can substantially grow for EVs with ranges of 200+ km. Tata Altroz EV with expected price of Rs 12 lakhs can be a great option for that.

I saw a Tigor EV XM today which was being driven by the owner. It was being used as a hired taxicab. He said that the real world range is around 80-90 kilometres in the city with varying loads and minimum air-conditioning (due to a chilly winter in my place). He seemed happy with the car and paid around ₹ 10 lakhs for it. He said it took 8 hours to charge with the supplied charger and the dealer arranged for the installation at his home for ₹300.
Apologies if already mentioned here in the forum, but I saw the insides of the boot. The spare wheel well is occupied by the battery and the spare wheel sits above it on the boot floor eating the boot space (like in the Mercedes Benz CLA).

With 8 hours to charge and 80-90 km charge ,how will he break even with his costs ? Any information about his profitability ? Typical cabs run 150 -200 kms per day.

He said he gets a rental of around ₹ 35000 per month including driver salary (he himself drives it now). And his typical usage is less than 80 kilometres a day (close to 50 on an average). He mainly uses it inside a manufacturing setup. Typical driver salary here is around ₹ 7000 so I guess it will be close to 3-4 years for breaking even if we exclude insurance (around ₹ 50000 but he was unsure about the exact amount or coverage he has). Also he did mention that the registration is strangely for a period of 12 years instead of the usual 15 with ICE vehicles.

According to a report on Zigwheels, Tigor EV is undergoing a facelift and will come with the changes as we see in the new BS6 Tigor.

They also mention it to continue with the same puny existing electric motor churning out 41 PS of power and 105 NM of torque. This could have been an ideal situation in my opinion to launch it with their new Ziptron platform/architecture or whatever it is called that ensures a powerful motor paired to a moderately long range battery pack since there seems to be interest to buy EVs among 'niche' general public.

Our friendly neighborhood Autospy caught up with an updated Tigor EV facelift on test, possibly spotted on camera for the very first time.

He suspects that it might be testing with an improved range/range extender battery system.

This is indeed a good news! I hope they bring the Altroz EV or a Tiago EV it will be ideal vehicle for city use.

Good to see the face-lifted Tigor EV. I have my fingers crossed and saving up for the Altroz EV. Had a chance to drive the Nexon EV and blown away by it's performance. Even if they give a reduced power ratings for the Altroz EV, with the lighter weight and stance, I'm sure it'll be a zippy drive indeed.

Sorry, but is it just me, wondering what is the function of that gear (AMT) lever in an EV!?

I dont think I saw one in a Nexon EV, hence the query!?

It's been there from day 1. It's the gear selector, from the Tigor AMT, used as a drive selector.

At the 1:43 & 2:30 marks:

Thanks for the Scoop. Looks great.

This is a good sign and shows that Tata Motors is still betting on this offering even though they now have the much better package in the Nexon EV. I think along with the updated facelift edition this car need an improved range to succeed and/ or a starting price close to 10 lakhs may be to make some economic sense for the commercial segment.

Bring out the Altroz EV and retire this 72 V archaic tech.

TATA should give us a Tigor with tech similar to the one in Nexon EV. Not everyone needs an SUV and maybe they can shed some weight too on Tigor compared to Nexon,which I hope indirectly will give us better range too. But is Battery storage a problem in EV Sedans , when we compare it with SUVS ?
