This vehicle is a new model of Tata Motors electric car and is priced at 849,000 rupees or about 10,370 US dollars.
Tata Tiago’s low price makes it very competitive to be able to compete with other brands in the Indian automotive market.
Previously, the automaker had also sold the Tigor electric sedan in India at a price of US$4,000.
India’s very strict import laws, which double the cost of producing vehicles, have led many car manufacturers to shift their business to other countries.
Some time ago, Tesla also planned to enter the Indian market, but because the company did not want to commit to complying with India’s import laws, the plan was finally postponed.
With a smaller battery, the Tiago electric car is also equipped with a motor that produces an output of 60 horsepower and 110 Nm (81 lb-ft) of torque.
As for the long-range model, it is equipped with a motor that produces an output of 74 horsepower and has a slightly higher torque of 114 Nm (84 pound-feet).
On the other hand, Tata Motors also includes an 8 year (160,000 kilometers) warranty for the battery pack and a 3 year (125,000 kilometers) warranty for the vehicle itself.
The company will start taking pre-orders for the Tiago electric car on October 1 and will ship the vehicle from January 2023.
