TIGOR EV FAQs

Learn everything you need to know about the new Tigor EV through frequently asked questions.

TIGOR EV has 2 charging options:
Normal AC Charging via 220 / 230 V AC single phase charger. Time taken for 0 to 80% charge is approximately 360 minutes depending on ambient and battery temperature. The car can be plugged into any 15 Ampere socket either directly to a 3 pin industrial socket or to a 3 pin domestic socket through an adaptor. Fast DC Charging via any DC Fast Charger. Time taken for 0 to 80% charge is approximately 90 minutes depending on ambient and battery temperature.
Charging TIGOR EV is hassle free, just like charging any other electronic equipment. You may charge the vehicle either via Normal AC charging or Fast DC Charging.
It is easy to install an EV charging port in your apartment building. You need to get in touch with your society manager and your distribution company (DIS COM) for taking the necessary permissions. Tata Motors has tied up with Tata Power (in selected cities) who will help you in setting up the home charging solutions. Please enquire with one of the Tata Motors dealers mentioned on Dealer Locator page.
Normal AC Charging time : 0 to 80% charge is approximately 360 minutes depending on ambient and battery temperature.
Fast DC Charging time : 0 to 80% charge is approximately 90 minutes depending on ambient and battery temperature.
Users are to ensure that the first three charge cycles, after delivery of the vehicle, are done via slow charger. During this ‘running-in period’, each charge cycle should be of minimum 8 Hrs. duration (i.e. overnight charge).
Post running-in period, users are advised to follow charging pattern of one fast charge cycle followed by one slow charging cycle.
Between every three consecutive charging cycles it is recommended to have at least one complete 100 % charging operation.
It is recommended to avoid successive short duration charging operation. e.g. charging only for 30%.
Do ensure that the car is being used and charged regularly to maintain optimum battery health. Do not keep car idle for more than a period of 3 Days.
In case car needs to be kept Idle for long durations, please ensure to disconnect negative terminal of Auxiliary battery. Waking car up after idle period would require a complete slow charge before usage.
The instrument cluster on TIGOR EV depicts the State of Charge (SOC) of the battery at any given moment when the car's ignition is on. This is expressed as a % of charge remaining.
Indian charging infrastructure is expanding by the day. There are numerous free community charging stations with both AC and DC charging capability as well as paid community charging stations. Depending on the type of set up it is either free or paid (according to usage).
Please refer the list of charging stations compiled on the charging station page to learn about your nearest charging stations.

TIGOR EV is designed to stop charging, automatically once a full charge is achieved.
The battery pack comprises of 72 Cells.
A conventional battery is located under the bonnet to power all the regular systems in the car – like exterior / interior lighting, horn, infotainment. The Battery pack that powers the motor is situated in the rear trunk.
To conserve battery life, Tigor EV has a dedicated battery cooling module to control temperatures inside the battery pack. But as with all electronic devices, constant fast charging (implying high current charging) does impact overall battery life.
To enhance battery life, users are advised to follow charging pattern of one fast charge cycle followed by one slow charging cycle.
The car battery is designed to operate at greater than 75% of its certified capacity at all times. Tata Motors is offering Annual Maintenance Contracts (AMC) for upto 2,00,000 kms.
Electric vehicles are as safe and easy to maintain as conventional vehicles. All EVs undergo the same rigorous safety testing as conventional cars. Additionally, specific tests for battery pack and other high voltage components are also done. In addition to having compact & non-moving components, electric vehicles tend to have lower center of gravity than conventional vehicles, making them handle better and often improving ride quality.

With advancement in Battery management system and cell chemistry, manufacturers are able to ensure safe and efficient performance of battery packs over a large spread of ambient temperatures.

Most electric vehicles, owing to simple single speed transmissions and consistent torque delivery, are easier to drive and do not add to safety hazards while driving.
a) Yes, it is safe to charge electric cars during rain. Modern charging cables have several layers of protection that ensure safe operation in wet conditions. Constant communication is also maintained between the vehicle and charger to ensure charging is not initiated in case any fault is noticed.
b) It is perfectly safe to drive electric cars during monsoon. Users are advised to maintain similar precaution as they would maintain with IC engine vehicles.
