Electric cars in India in the next 18 months. These four models include the electric version of the company’s popular subcompact SUV Nexon i.e. Nexon EV, Altroz EV, Powerful version of Tigor EV and another model. According to reports, the company’s chairman N Chandrasekaran disclosed this in a conversation with ShareHodels at the 74th Annual General Meeting. The special thing is that for the first time it has been officially confirmed that the company will launch Nexon Electric.
Very little information has been revealed about the specifications of the electric Tata Nexon. Like the Tigor EV, the Nexon EV is also expected to be given a lithium-ion battery pack. It is likely that the Nexon EV will be powered by battery technology and electric motor Ultraz EV, which was introduced at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year
Tata Motors had said that the Ultra EV will come with a range of 250 to 300 km on a full charge. The company has also claimed that electric fast charge can be charged 80% in 60 minutes with DC fast charging. Reports say that the range and charging time of Electric Nexon will also be around these figures.
Cost of these two electric cars
No information has been revealed about the price of these two electric cars. However, Tata Motors officials have already stated that the cost of the Ultra EV will be more than Rs 10 lakh. It is likely that the price of Nexon EV will be slightly higher than the Ultras EV. There will also be some changes in the design of its electric version as compared to the petrol-diesel model of Nexon.
Tata Tigor EV
Tata Motors launched an updated version of its electric cars, the Tigor EV. The major change in the new Tigor EV has been in its battery pack and range. Compared to the first, now it has a larger battery pack and its range is also more. Also, the new Tigor EV is the first car from Tata Motors, which is also available for private buyers (personal use). However, for private and commercial buyers this electric car is available at different prices and there is a big difference in the price of both.
In fact, under the government’s Fame-2 scheme, the subsidy is available only on cars sold for commercial use, so there is a difference in price between private and commercial buyers. The Tigor EV is available in three variants (XE +, XM + and XT +). Its starting price is Rs 9.44 lakh for commercial buyers and Rs 13.09 lakh for private buyers.
The electric Tigor with more range will run up to 213 once full charge. At the same time, the old variant, ie Standard Tigor EV, gives a range of up to 142 km on a full charge. The new electric Tigor has a 21.5kWh battery pack, while the old model had a 16.2kWh battery pack. The electric Tigor features a 72V, 3-face AC induction motor that generates 30kW (41hp) of power at 4,500rpm and 105Nm of torque at 2,500rpm. The car has two driving modes (Drive and Sport).
The electric Tigor’s top variant XT + features Harmon’s 2-DIN audio system with Bluetooth, USB, and AUX connectivity, 14-inch alloy wheels, height-adjustable driver seat, shark fin antenna and LED tail lamps. The anti-lock braking system (ABS) is in all variants. Only the driver side airbags in the XE + variant and dual airbags are provided in both other variants.
