Is Tata Tiago EV worth buying as an electric car? Price, Specifications and Features

The Tata Tiago EV redefines affordability and electric mobility. It feels very polished and grown-up for an entry-level EV, and it shares the same sense of spaciousness as the petrol-powered model—a difficult feat in the hatchback class. It's not flawless, though; the real-world range could be greater, and the cabin is outdated by today's standards. The latter would undoubtedly be more alppealing to those wishing to switch from their first electric vehicle to one that runs on petrol or diesel.
The grille of the Tiago EV has been blanked off, showcasing the distinctive tri-arrow pattern on both ends. The electric hatchback has electric-blue inserts and the EV badge on the grille to set it apart from the standard model. The new dual-tone alloy wheel pattern further draws attention to the side profile.

Electric blue colours are also present inside, similar to the exterior, on the air vents and digital instrument cluster. The Tiago EV's features include an automated climate control system, a height-adjustable driver seat, a flat-bottom steering wheel with mounted controls, and a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system by Harman.
It has a stated range of 250 km for the 19.2 kWh battery pack and 315 km for the 24 kWh battery pack. Whereas the latter generates 74 bhp (114 nm), the former makes 60 bhp (110 nm). Depending on the model, the Tiago EV comes with a 3.3kW or 7.2kW home charger. It can be charged from 10% to 80% with DC fast charging in approximately 57 minutes.
The Tiago EV doesn't lose its fire when you drive in the city. You won't notice much of a difference in acceleration in S mode, and for the most part, the performance isn't too bad. With one person, the Tiago EV reached 60 mph in 5.63 seconds, and with four, it took 6.70 seconds. Naturally, the difference was greater at highway speeds: one person could complete the task from zero to 100 kmph in 13.28 seconds, while four people needed 16.14 seconds.
It comes equipped with a rearview camera with parking sensors, powered boot opening, ABS with EBD, dual front airbags, leatherette seat upholstery, TPMS, auto headlamps and rain-sensing wipers, 45 ZConnect features with smartwatch compatibility, four speakers and four tweeters, and re-gen modes (0, 1, 2, and 3).
