Tigor EV Rolling Out Sanand Plant

Tata Motors had reportedly quoted a price of Rs10.16 lakh for every unit of Tata Tigor EV to the government, excluding GST. Factoring in GST takes the final price of the vehicle goes over Rs 11 lakh.

Tata Motors began rolling out the first electric Tigor models from its Sanand plant in Gujarat on Wednesday, with the first auto flagged off in the presence of Tata Group chairman N Chandrasekaran, group doyen Ratan Tata and CEO Guenter Butschek. It is expected to supply an additional 100 cars to EESL shortly.

The electric vehicles which have been produced for Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL) - the state run enterprise set up to implement energy efficient projects - were rolled out in the presence of Tata Sons' Chairman Emeritus, Ratan Tata and Chairman N Chandrasekaran.

"As we work together to build the future of e-mobility, I am confident that our customers will respond very favourably to this electric model, " Chandrasekaran said.

According to reports, Tata Motors had qualified as "L1" bidder to win a tender of 10,000 electric cars floated by EESL in September 2017.

Tata motors will supply the bulk of the order to the government of India over the next two years.

The Indian government is planning a wholesale shift to electric cars by 2030 as part of its efforts to reduce both oil imports and carbon emissions. The EESL order first mandated supply to be completed on/before 30 November but was later postponed to December-end. This means that the electric Tata Tigor will be available for government use only for the time being.

"With e-Tigor, we've begun our journey in boosting e- mobility and offering a full range of e-vehicles to customers".

The company has still not disclosed the specs of the Tigor electric which is powered by Electra EV, that Canadian brand that is also believed to be making a powertrain for the Nano EV. The Tigor EV gets a 29.5Kw motor sourced from Electra EV which makes a peak output of 40BHP. The major change lies under the hood with electric powertrain.
