The new Tata Tigor EV also gets an extended range. It now travels 315 km, which is 9 km more than the outgoing model. The new car also comes with new features that were available only with the Nexon EV Max and Nexon EV Prime. Tata has added a multi-mode regeneration function with automatic brake lamp activation. It turns on the brake lamps as soon the driver lifts off the foot from the accelerator and the regen is activated.
Like the Nexon EV Prime and Max, the new Tigor EV gets four-level of regen braking. Level 0 has no regeneration while Level 3 has the highest regeneration. With the regen, the batteries get juiced up, especially in start-stop traffic or while going on downhill. This has increased the overall driving range of the new Tigor EV.
Other new features include cruise control, and a tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS). The TPMS only works with the smartphone app and there are new connectivity features for smartwatches too.
