Tata Tigor EV, the new mass-market electric car by Tata Motors, is affordable and it will even be more affordable in Maharashtra due to the state’s incentive program for electric vehicles. These incentives will reduce the cost of the Tigor EV by approximately Rs 2.30 lakh. As same as the strong demand for the Nexon EV, the Tigor EV too has received an overwhelming response and more than 100 units have already been booked in Mumbai since the new EV policy was implemented. Delivery of the electric sedan is scheduled for mid-October 2021.
In Maharashtra, the new EV policy provides a Rs 5,000 incentive per kWh of battery capacity for electric vehicles. The maximum incentive is Rs 1.50 lakh. As a result, the 26-kWh battery of the Tigor EV will receive incentives of Rs 1.30 lakh. In addition, the early booking incentives will further reduce the price by Rs 1 lakh for cars registered before December 31, 2021. For this reason, Tigor EV customers will receive up to Rs 2.3 lakh in discounts on all models and trim levels till year-end. A significantly more attractive offer will be a result of this.
Furthermore, fleet operators can also sign up for significant discounts on the Xpres-T – the version of the Tigor EV sold to corporations – of up to Rs 2. 07 lakh (model subsidy of Rs 82,500 for 16.5kWh model and Rs 1.07 lakh for 21.5kWh model, and Rs 1 lakh as early bird incentive).
