The power output in case of Xpres-T is at 41 hp and with 105 Nm of torque.
Interestingly, Tata Motors has also confirmed that the Tigao EV will come equipped with connected car technology. The EV will have automaker’s ZConnect technology already in use in other EVs. It also supports smartwatch connectivity. Tata has also revealed that the Tiago EV will come with premium leatherette seats which are likely to be used for the upper trims.
Earlier, Tata had revealed that the upcoming EV will come with features such as cruise mode and the one pedal drive technology. The second feature will allow drivers to opt for strong regenerative braking which will preserve charge of the electric hatchback’s battery pack on the move. It is also expected to come with multi-mode regen functionality.
Tigo EV will become India’s only hatchback model to get an EV version besides the existing ICE and CNG versions. Earlier, Tata Motors launched the CNG version of the Tiago in January this year. The Tigor os the first model in India to get all three versions including an EV variant.
