According to the leaked ARAI (Automotive Research Association of India) document, the Tigor EV is powered by an AC 3-phase motor manufactured by a company called Electra EV – which appears to be owned by Chinmaya Joshi of Tata Sons.
The vehicle recorded a maximum power of 29.8 kW (40 hp) @ 55 km/h. In the standard ARAI maximum 30-minute power test, the vehicle recorded 12 kW (16 hp) @ 45 km/h.
The Tigor EV weighs 1,516 kg gross, which is significantly lighter than the Mahindra eVerito which weighs 1,700 kg. The eVerito delivers 41 hp and 91 Nm of torque, and has a range of 110 km on a full charge under test conditions.
The leaked document doesn’t mention anymore details of the Tigor EV. However, more details are expected in due course as the company has to deliver 500 EVs in the first phase starting this month.
The Tigor EVs will be produced at the company’s plant in Sanand, Gujarat.
