Tata Motors announced a price hike of Rs 20,000 across all variants of the Tata Tiago EV. Prices for the all-electric hatchback now start at Rs 8.69 lakh and go all the way up to Rs 11.99 lakh. The Tiago EV was launched in September 2022 at an introductory price of Rs 8.49 lakh. The introductory offer was initially available for the first 10,000 bookings but was later extended to 20,000 bookings after seeing the high demand for the EV. Despite the price hike, Tata Tiago EV still remains the most affordable electric car in India.

Tata Tiago EV: All the details
The Tata Tiago EV looks exactly like its ICE counterpart, albeit with a few EV-specific changes. Firstly, the EV gets a closed-off grille, which is standard for most electric offerings. It also gets blue highlights across the body and headlamps, a unique detail that Tata reserves for its electric vehicles. The shut-off grille also receives the signature tri-arrow design on both ends. Along the sides, the alloy wheel design has also been refreshed for the EV.
Inside, the Tiago EV receives leatherette seating to give it a more premium feel. In terms of features, the EV receives fully automatic climate control (standard among all variants), projector headlamps, cruise control, rain-sensing wipers, auto headlamps, electric OVRMs with auto fold, push button start/stop, and an emergency puncture repair kit.
Tata Tiago EV is available in two battery pack options: 19.2kWh and 24kWh. The EV comes in 7 variants, with multiple battery pack and charging combinations. Both battery packs are rated IP67 for dust and water resistance. Tata claims a Modified Indian Driving Cycle (MIDC) range of 315 km for the 24kWh battery pack and 250km for the 19.2kWh battery.
Powering the Tata Tiago EV is a Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor which delivers a peak power output of 55kW and an instant full torque delivery of 114Nm. The electric hatchback can accelerate from 0-60kmph in 5.7 seconds. There are also two driving modes on offer – City mode and Sport mode – with further four levels of regen settings in each mode.
