Tigor EV by Tata Nexon, continues to lead EV sales

Tigor EV by Tata continues to lead the EV sales charts, Tata Motors continued to lead the electric vehicle (EV) sales charts in June 2018, despite the fact that its Nexon EV received a price cut in May 2018, as well as in April 2018. In May 2018, Tata Motors had also slashed the prices of its Tigor EV by Rs 5 lakh and then by another Rs 1 lakh in June 2018. According to data released by the Society of Manufacturers of Electric Vehicles (SMEV), Tata Motors maintained its position at the top with cumulative sales of 2,734 units so far this year.

Tata Motors EVs remain popular

Tata Motors launched both EVs in 2017 and they’ve continued their run of success throughout 2018. In fact, these two cars accounted for 44% of total EV sales in India during Q2 2018. One reason these vehicles have been so popular is that they’re more affordable than other EVs in India. The Tata Nexon EV is priced at Rs 7-8 lakh while the Tata Tigor EV costs around Rs 5-6 lakh; that’s a little less than half of what some other EVs cost. And unlike many of their competitors’ EVs, both vehicles are based on conventional petrol or diesel models rather than being entirely new concepts or platforms.

Tata Nexon, Tigor EVs among top

In India, Tata Motors’ Tigor and Tata Nexon are still among top-selling electric vehicles in India. So far in 2019, Tata has sold 1,876 units of its two EVs together — up from 821 units it had sold at a similar point last year. To date in 2019, there have been 2,147 EVs sold in India — almost three times as many as were sold in all of 2018 (796). The main factor behind these numbers is government subsidies that have increased from ₹5 lakh on a car priced between ₹30 lakh and ₹40 lakh to ₹7.5 lakh on cars priced between ₹25 lakh and 40 lakh reasons why you should buy an electric car

why you should buy an electric car

1. They’re cheaper than fuel-powered cars: Most electric cars are expensive in comparison to their combustion-engine counterparts but, on a per-mile basis, they’re cheaper—sometimes as much as twice as cheap. And over time they cost even fewer thanks to government incentives. The typical American driver spends anywhere from $0.20–$0.30 per mile in fuel costs; that means a 30-mile trip may cost you $7–$10 total in gas (depending on where you live). Electric vehicles can accomplish that same distance for just $2–$3 worth of electricity (again, depending on your location). 2. Maintenance is easier: EVs require very little routine maintenance since there are far fewer moving parts and no oil changes need three new EVs coming in 2020

The Tata Nexon EV, Tigor EV and a new compact SUV. First up is Tata’s compact sedan—the Tigor. The four-door sedan will be Tata’s first electric vehicle (EV) in its portfolio. Reports say that it should come with a lithium-ion battery and an 80kW motor at launch—that will get it from 0-60 kph in 6 seconds. Other than that details are still under wraps though we can expect more details by 2020 when it is launched. The next car on our list is also expected to debut in 2020; its name is expected to be Nano T20 EV and unlike other EVs from Tata Motors, it may not come with a hatchback layout.

Your Questions Answered

There are many reasons people choose to drive an electric vehicle (EV). The most common reason is that they’re more environmentally friendly than gas-powered cars. But there are also financial and convenience benefits. In fact, depending on where you live and what car you drive, it may make sense for you to own a completely electric car instead of driving a hybrid of a regular gasoline-powered vehicle. So what does an electric car mean? It means there is no engine or combustion—the car runs on a battery-operated electrical motor instead of burning gas for fuel.
