The Tata Tigor EV became the first EV to ever be tested by Global NCAP achieved 4 stars for both adult as well as child occupants in the latest #SaferCarsForIndia crash test.

Tata Tigor EV crash test

The Tata Tigor EV, which was just released, was tested in its most basic safety configuration, which had two airbags as standard. The Tigor rating might be improved further by standardising Electronic Stability Control (ESC), side-impact protection, three-point seat belts in all sitting positions, and ISOFIX connections.

The driver's head received acceptable protection, while the passenger's head received adequate protection. Both front passengers' necks appeared to be well-protected. The driver's chest was adequately protected, while the passenger's chest was well protected. Because they may collide with hazardous objects beneath the dashboard supported by the tranfascia tube, the driver and passenger knees provided only limited protection.

The tibias of both the driver and the passenger provided adequate and effective protection. The bodyshell was deemed unstable, and it could not handle further loads. The footwell was deemed unstable. The automobile comes equipped with a standard Seat Belt Reminder (SBR) for both the driver and the passenger.

In the child protection test, 3-year-old and 1.5-year-old child seats were fitted rearwards facing with the adult seatbelt, preventing excessive forward movement during the collision. The chest and head protection were adequate. The labelling for Child Restraint Systems (CRS) was permanent. Incompatibility was not found with the suggested CRS.

In the back centre position, the car provided a lap belt. ISOFIX anchorages are not available in this vehicle. All of the foregoing explains why the kid occupant protection rating is four stars.

Alejandro Furas, Secretary-General of Global NCAP said, "Tata has shown consistent safety improvements throughout its fleet range. The Tigor demonstrates that improvements are also possible with EV models, which can pose a technical challenge because of the electric powertrain system. Tata should be recognised and applauded for this commitment to improving their vehicles in response to Global NCAP's call to democratise vehicle safety."
