Back in September 2022, Tata launched the Tiago EV at a price of Rs 8.49 lakh. The brand announced that the introductory prices are only for the first 10,000 customers. However, due to an overwhelming response, the introductory price bracket was raised for the next 10,000 customers as well.
The vehicle remains quite popular in the market. While Tata is yet to announce an official waiting period on the car, various dealers quote a waiting period of about six months. Tata has already started delivering the hatchback.
Commenting on this exciting news, Mr. Vivek Srivatsa, Head, Marketing, Sales and Service Strategy, at Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd., said,
“The Tiago.ev is a special product as it is making electric mobility accessible and mainstream. It has received a phenomenal response from customers making it the ‘Fastest Booked EV’ in India with 10,000 units being booked on the first day and 20,000 bookings achieved within a month.
“It is now time for us to move to the next leg of this journey. To continue extending the fervour of this exciting product to more customers without any compromise, we are happy to announce the starting price of the Tiago.ev range at INR 8.69 Lakh, a nominal INR 20,000 hike from the proposed introductory price – committing to our promise of democratising the EV market and keeping the product accessible to all by retaining the starting price below 10 lakhs.”
