The first batch of Tata Tigor electric vehicles are ready for dispatch from the carmaker's Sanand plant. These Tigor EVs have been manufactured for the Indian Governments order of electric vehicles for the Energy Efficiency Services (EESL).
EESL is an entity under the Ministry of Power and Tata Motors is providing them with a total of 10,000 electric cars. For now, the carmaker will be delivering 250 units of these Tigor EVs in the first phase. The company has already received a letter of authority (LoA) for this first batch and is shortly expected to get another LoA for another batch of 100 cars.
Tata Motors is very supportive of the Government's vision for electric cars by 2030 and striving its best to deliver these vehicles. There is hardly any visual difference between the standard Tigor and this electric one, apart from the EV badging. However, the biggest difference is in terms of the electric drive system, which is developed and supplied by Electra EV. The latter company has been established to develop and supply electric drive systems for the automotive sector.
