He sees it as an ideal fun hatch that offers premium, safety and technology features, an environmental footprint and spirited performance, all made even more desirable with the added benefit of a low cost of ownership.
It will be the first in its segment to offer connected features as standard on all trims, which are typically offered in higher-end cars. Tiago EV comes with two battery options and four different charging solutions, allowing customers to choose the combination that best suits their mobility needs.
Tata Motors previously confirmed that the Tiago EV features connected car technology. It supports smartwatch, Apple Car Play and Google Android Auto connectivity.
Tiago.ev is based on Ziptron technology, which is the high-voltage architecture developed in-house by Tata Motors and designed for Indian driving and weather conditions.
“Standing to the 5 key pillars of Ziptrons, the Tiago.ev is solid in terms of performance, technology, reliability, charging and comfort. The Ziptron EV architecture is piloted and proven over 500 million km in Indian terrain diverse and challenging, making it suitable for an exhilarating EV experience,” the company said in a statement.
