Tata Motors is in no mood to let go off its throne in the four-wheeler electric vehicle market in India. The homegrown brand has two of the highest-selling mass-market EVs in its portfolio– Tigor EV and Nexon EV– that are available at very attractive price points. 


The company has now rolled out its third all-electric offering in the form of Tiago EV, its most affordable model in the battery-powered segment. Offered at a price bracket of Rs 8.45 lakh and Rs 11.79 lakh (ex-showroom), it has also become the most affordable electric car one could buy in India.


The prices mentioned above are introductory and applicable to the first 10,000 customers only. Out of these 10,000 bookings, 2,000 units will be reserved for existing Tigor EV and Nexon EV owners. The all-electric hatch is available in four trims– XE, XT, XZ+ and XZ+ Tech. Tata Motors will start accepting bookings for Tiago EV from October 10 while deliveries of the electric car will commence from January 2023.

Tata Tiago EV variants and prices

Exterior Design

Tiago EV shares the exact same design as the ICE-powered Tiago which received a facelift earlier this year. That said, the electric hatch receives a few minute yet noticeable styling updates over its fossil-fuelled sibling that provide a distinction between the two models. For instance, the all-electric hatch gets a sealed-off front grille panel featuring blue accents and an EV logo.


Blue highlights are also visible inside headlamp clusters and around fog lamp housings as well as on its side profile and machine-cut dual-tone alloy wheels. Front and rear bumpers feature familiar tri-arrow motifs common to all Tata EVs. To keep the cost in check, Tiago EV employs 14-inch steel wheels.

Customers get to choose from five colour options– Teal Blue, Daytona Grey, Pristine White, Midnight Plum and Tropical Mist.

Interior styling and features

Blue highlights visible on the exterior have been carried over to its interiors where Teal Blue accents make for a pleasing aesthetic in contrast with the dual-tone theme of the cabin. The gear lever has been replaced with a rotary dial for the drive mode selector. Overall layout of the cabin is identical to its ICE counterpart.


The electric hatch boasts an impressive list of features including a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, electric ORVMs, cruise control, automatic projector headlamps, push-button start/stop, rain-sensing wipers, an 8-speaker Harman audio system and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

It also benefits from two driving modes– City and Sport, which come with four levels of regen settings in each mode.
