The Tata Tiago EV was launched in October recently and opened to an overwhelming response to the extinct of taking the company’s website down for reservations. Starting at Rs 8.49 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the initial price was initially limited to 10,000 orders, but expanded to 20,000 bookings due to unprecedented demand. Chandra says automakers are now forced to raise prices for India’s cheapest EVs due to rising input costs of materials, including batteries.

Not only the Tiago EV, but also Tata Motors’ ICE-powered passenger cars will see price increases next year. The automaker has already announced price increases for its commercial vehicle range, and Chandra said price increases for passenger cars will come in two parts. Rising input costs include more expensive raw materials as well as the transition to BS6 Phase 2, which will come into effect in April 2023. The result will be a second price increase across Tata’s entire vehicle range later in 2023.

The Tata Tiago EV is the last of the Gen-1 models introduced by the company. Now, we plan to introduce a Gen-2 EV family that can drive about 400 to 500 km on a single charge. Chandra said the new lineup will include existing products as well as new nameplates. The automaker is already working on a Gen-3 range (over 500 km) based on the Avinya and Curvy concepts, with a launch planned for 2025.
