The updated Tigor EV brings features from the Nexon EV
The Tigor’s biggest update is its range of 315km, which is 9km more than the outgoing model. Tata has also brought new features to the Tigor that were previously only available on the Nexon EV Max and Nexon EV Prime. Chief among these additional features is the multi-mode regeneration function with automatic brake lamp activation, which switches the brake lights during regeneration.
Like the Nexon EV Prime and Max, the Tigor EV has level 0 blocking regeneration and level 3 the strongest level 4 regenerative braking. This helps to recharge the battery while on the move, especially in traffic or downhill, thus increasing effective driving range. Other new features of the Tigor EV include cruise control, an indirect tire pressure monitoring system via a smartphone app, and integrated smartwatch connectivity.
Previously, Tata Motors rolled out these new software-based features for free to Nexon EV owners. Tata is doing the same for existing Tigor EV customers.

Tata also added a new top-spec XZ+ Lux model that comes with a contrast black roof, leatherette upholstery and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The price of this variant is Rs 13.75 lakh.
