Tata has always been considered as the unparalleled legacy in the race of Indian automobile market, and then they entering into the game of electric vehicles makes them ever huge. The regular model of Tata Tigor had a big market in India and performed well in the segment of a mid-range compact sedan. And its sister the EV is all set to rule the automobile market in the EV segment.
Coming to its safety, it is equipped with the basic seat belt reminder alarm for the front as well as rear seats which is kind of a go-to feature for all cars these days. Then Tigor EV is also equipped with two frontal airbags, which ensures that whenever you suddenly have an impact, the head of the passengers in the car is secure.

Talking about the range of this EV, this is more of a subjective kind of thing and depends upon where the car is run. The company has claimed the range to be 213 km with battery only which means the car would traverse a maximum of 213 km on a single charge. When we talk about the range of a hatchback car, this range is quite decent and for that matter, the company has also promised to extend the range of the car in its future editions.
In terms of performance, the Tata Tigor EV doesn’t feel quick. However, the electric sedan gets the job done moderately well in the city traffics. You may feel it underpowered sometimes with the power-to-weight ratio determines the sluggish performance.

As always, the car has a beautiful and minimalistic look and feel from the outside, perfectly suited to its quoted price. The company provides a shining frontal grill which adds to the class of the front of the car along with the crystal-inspired LED tail lamps.
To make it more interesting and to stand out from all other cars, it has EV decals on the side doors which are eye-catching. And lastly, above all, it has a Plano black shark-finned antenna with LED braking light which looks simply amazing.
