Long-range 2021 Tata Tigor EV Ziptron teased ahead of debut, should get over 250 km range
Tata Motors has teased the long-range version of the 2021 Tata Tigor EV ahead of its debut. The updated Tigor EV is expected to get a larger battery pack with Tata Motors' Ziptron electrical architecture which should offer more range and performance.
2021 Tata Tigor EV Ziptron expected battery size, range, charging
The Tata Tigor EV should get a battery pack very similar to the one in the Tata Nexon EV featuring Tata Motors Ziptron EV tech. The Nexon EV's lithium-ion battery is of 30.2kWh capacity and feeds a permanent-magnet AC motor that puts 129PS and 245Nm through the front wheels. This allows for a brisk 0 to 100kmph time of 9.9s, the top speed is limited to 120kmph. The SUV will do over 312km on a full charge as per the ARAI, a real-world range of around 230 km can be expected. . While no details have been provided, the Tigor EV should be lighter and may do with fewer stacks in the battery pack given its smaller footprint. But expect it to offer up similar range and performance, even if power outputs may be detuned from the Nexon EV. Read about our Mumbai-Pune road trip in a Nexon EV here.
The single-speed gearbox with two drive mode options, Drive and Sport, should remain unchanged, however. Through a DC fast charger, the Tigor EV, like its SUV sibling, should reach 80 per cent capacity in 60 minutes. The Nexon EV also be plugged into any standard power socket, which takes eight hours to get from 20 to 80 per cent charge. The Tigor EV should manage a charging time similar to this.

2021 Tata Tigor EV Ziptron exterior, interior, features
The teaser shows that the 2021 Tata Tigor EV will get reworked frontal styling to differentiate from the piston-engined version. There should be a blanked-out grille as well as a new bumper that features the L-shaped LED DRLS as well as the foglamps. The rest of the compact sedan will likely remain unchanged aside from some light blue highlights as seen on the Nexon EV.
These blue highlights should carry over on the inside with a different colour scheme to the one in the standard Tigor. Expect the semi-digital instrumentation from the Nexon EV as well as the rotary drive controller to be seen here as well. Also expected is connected tech and more features than the regular Tigor
