Tata Tigor Electric vs Tata Nexon Electric

Tata has been proudly selling India's most affordable "proper" electric car, the Nexon EV for a while now. To widen its reach, Tata now introduces the even more affordable Tigor EV.

Tata Tigor EV

What you'll like:

  • A competent EV package at an affordable starting price
  • Zero tailpipe emissions & green image will appeal to the environmentally-conscious
  • Real-world range of ~200 km is adequate for city commutes & urban dwellers
  • Stupendously cheap fuel cost of 1 rupee / km (if you charge at home)
  • Peppy behaviour in "S" mode! "D" mode is rather tame though
  • Sorted road manners due to the lower center-of-gravity & firmer suspension
  • Smooth drive, no gears, light controls & compact size make it an ideal city car
  • Well-designed interiors are likeable & user-friendly
  • Features like the 8-speaker Harman audio system, projector headlamps, connected car tech & more
  • Solid build & construction. 4-star GNCAP safety rating is commendable

What you won't:

  • A stiff 5-lakh rupees more expensive than the Tigor Petrol AMT
  • Nexon EV is superior & not that far away in terms of pricing (or EMIs)
  • ~200 km range means this is strictly a city car. No long highway runs
  • Stiffer suspension than the regular Tigor means you feel more of the road. Bad roads are felt
  • Power tapers off after 100 km/h; top speed of just 120 km/h
  • Smaller 316L boot (regular Tigor = 419L) due to the intrusive spare tyre
  • Some misses such as "P" mode on the shifter, adjustable regen braking & alloy wheels
  • A rare Tata car that cannot seat 5 (best for 4 adults)
  • Tata's after-sales service quality is a hit or miss. Remains a gamble
  • It's a brand-new technology, so there will be issues & niggles

Discussion Thread

Here's what BHPian GTO had to say on the matter:

Easiest poll I ever voted on in my life. Nexon EV without a doubt. It's the most sorted, feels like a "regular car", has good styling (love the face of the facelift) and a practical cabin. Importantly, it is quick & has a range that works well for my kind of urban usage, with the occasional highway run to nearby destinations.

I know people will be tempted toward the Tigor EV and it is a competent electric sedan, but the Nexon EV is totally worth the price difference (not much in EMI terms anyway).
