The battery will still continue to drain on a daily basis and you keep topping it up. So there may have been a lot of charging cycles where you might have used a fraction of the available charge.
Do you own an Ather scooter perhaps? I can see where you are coming from, but you forget the % drain in Ather is not comparable to a car. Ather has a puny battery capacity compared to the car. I own both Ather and Nexon EV. I need to charge my scooter every week If I don't shut it down, whereas it has never been the case with Nexon. For two weeks, I didn't turn it on, and there was no drop in SOC, or it was negligible.

I hope a cell phone charged to 100% and then switched off does not lose charge when you switch it on after 2 days. If that's the truth then the EVs shouldn't lose charge as well.

Well thats good to hear.
I don't own an EV yet, so that was an assumption I made. Thanks for clarifying.

But we need to see if the same holds true from the 2nd or 3rd year onwards.

The unsolicited advise was indeed hilarious, very much in context of purchasing Tigor vs it's nearest competitor from Tata stable itself.

You might be the head of R&D of xyz, but your 'advisor' sure did have a point that was too full of common sense to ignore.

Batteries degrade over time. They do not retain the same level of charge as they did originally when new.
Have you not experienced it with Inverter batteries / Phone batteries / Laptop batteries ?

Tata Tigor EV gets Rs 2.3 lakh subsidy in Maharashtra.

All trims of Tigor EV will benefit from these incentives.
Deliveries set to begin by mid-October.

Tata Tigor Electric Review-smartselect_20210913145548_chrome.jpg

After the implementation of this EV policy, the new Tigor EV has already received over 100 bookings from Mumbai alone.

Quote:
As per the new EV policy in Maharashtra, all electric four-wheelers will receive a basic incentive of Rs 5,000 per kWh of the vehicle battery capacity, with maximum incentive capped at Rs 1.50 lakh. This means the Tigor EV’s 26kWh battery pack will receive Rs 1.30 lakh in incentives.

Additionally, to further urge buyers in making the switch to EVs, all cars registered before December 31, 2021, will also be eligible for early bird incentives which further discount the price by Rs 1 lakh. Hence, the Tigor EV customers will receive a total of Rs 2.3 lakh off on all variants of the electric sedan, till the end of the year.

2021 Tata Tigor EV real world range tested

Tata Tigor Electric Review-smartselect_20211013110017_chrome.jpg

Quote:
In the city, the Tigor EV achieved a battery efficiency of 7.69km per kWh translating into a real-world range of 200km (7.69km/kWh multiplied by 26kWh). In our highway cycle, it managed an efficiency of 6.98km per kWh, translating into a highway range of 181km (6.89km/kWh multiplied by 26kWh) on a full charge.

No such accessories. It’s available only for Nexon as of now

On the first charge, Tigor was driven from 100% to 10% covering 180km. 85% driven in “D” and 15% in “S” @ ~ 125 - 130 Wh/km. Subsequently, we faced issues of charge dropping from 50% to 25% when parked for 2 hours. Just got the “software update” (apparently similar to updated on the Nexon EV previously). Will have to check and restart calculation again.

After the software update, charge dropping is not an issue anymore.

What is the software version, and can we check it without connecting to the OBD port?
What is the range that you're able to extract? My first 0 to 100 charge will probably give me about 200-210 km. I will know for sure by today.

Sorry, no idea about the software version or how I can check it with a CAN port connection.

I have never taken it below 5% since drivability is severely restricted below 10% and it doesn’t make any sense when driving in Bangalore.
