Tata Motors bagged a government contract to supply 10,000 electric vehicles in October 2017. It was later confirmed that Tata would be producing the Tigor EV at its Sanand plant in Gujarat. Specifications of the production version of the Tigor based electric car have leaked. According to the ARAI document in the image, the dimensions of Tigor EV are identical to the standard Tigor.

The ARAI document confirms that the Tigor EV will be powered by an AC 3-Phase electric motor, which is sourced from M/s Electra EV. A maximum output of 40 BHP was measured at 55 km/h. The electric motor is also put through a standard ARAI maximum 30-minute power test. In this test, average power is recorded at a specific speed, at which the net power is greater than 90% of the maximum output (40 BHP). In the Tigor EVs case, an average of 16 BHP was recorded at 45 km/h.

The Tigor EV's GVW is 1,516 kg which is almost 200 kg lighter than Mahindra’ eVerito which has a similar power output. The document does not mention the maximum distance that can be covered on a single charge. As per the contract, cars will be delivered in phases with 500 units due for delivery over the first three months following the contract.
