Visually, there are not gonna be any changes compared with the facelift we saw last year, but there’s a new Magnetic Red color option for those who want something different other than Teal Blue and Daytona Grey. However, I’m not sure if those contrast blue accents are a good match against this brownish-red paint. I just don’t think that those two colors are in agreement with each other. It looks as if a bored mid-aged Indian man painted his brown car blue accents because he had nothin’ else to do on a Sunday afternoon.
But anyway, key exterior features include halogen projector headlights (no LEDs), LED running lights, LED taillight signatures, ORVM-integrated turn signals, piano black shark fin antenna, and ‘Hyperstyle’ 14-inch wheel covers (no, not alloy wheels).
No changes on the inside, visually. Key features include a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay & Android Auto connectivity, 4 speakers + 4 tweeters, a USB port at the front, a 12-volt socket front & rear, auto AC, height-adjustable driver seat, and a cooled glovebox. Download the brochure here.
Zconnect connected car technology, Multi-Mode Regen (0-1-2-3 levels of regen settings), iTPMS, and a Tyre Puncture Repair Kit, are all now standard across the lineup. Some of these key features will be available for existing Tigor EV owners via a software update, free of charge.
Moving on to the juicy bits of the story, the electric motor offers the same output figures of 55 kW (75 metric hp) and 170 Nm (125 lb-ft). The battery pack capacity is also the same 26 kWh, but Tata now claims an ARAI-certified range of up to 315 km (196 mi), which is 9 km (5.6 mi) more than what the facelift claimed. Which means this enhanced range will also likely be available for existing Tigor EV owners via a software update.
