Tata Motors clears rumors about unsatisfactory performance of Tigor EV
In a recently-released statement, Indian automaker Tata Motors has said that its Tigor electric car is good enough for daily running requirements. The automaker has also asserted that it has maintained the price and range balance for the EV.
The statement by Tata Motors has come against the backdrop of the procurement of Tata Tigor and Mahindra e-Verito electric vehicles (EVs) by a government organization, Energy Efficiency Services Limited (EESL). The move was considered a noteworthy advance in India, in terms of electric mobility.
However, according to some recent media reports, government officials have apparently expressed dissatisfaction with the use of the vehicles. The reasons which the reports have cited for the unwillingness of the EESL officials to use the EVs include poor performance and low range.
Rebuffing the media reports, Tata Motors has asserted that the 10,000 Tigor EVs which the company has delivered to EESL are in sync with specifications which had been mentioned in the tender.
Going by Tata Motors’ statement, the tender specifications for Tigor EV were finalized by EESL after it managed to strike a balance between the price of the vehicles -- giving due consideration to battery costs -- and their range. The automaker also specifically said that the 130-km range of the vehicles is good enough for daily city use.
