Tata Motors, India’s leading automobile manufacturer, today announced the achievement of the 10K delivery mark for the Tiago.ev, making it the Fastest EV to achieve this milestone in less than four months. This announcement comes shortly after the Tiago.ev became the ‘Fastest Booked EV in India’, receiving 10K bookings in just 24 hours and 20K bookings by December 2022.
Living up to its promise of democratizing the EV driving experience and spreading the quest for safe, clean and green mobility, the Tiago.ev has successfully made its way to 491 cities, covering a total of 11.2 million kms and saving 1.6 million grams of CO2 from emitting into the atmosphere. The Tiago.ev has not only become a segment disrupter that offers premium-ness, safety and technology features and an eco-friendly footprint but it is also a fun electric trendsetter that provides its users with a superior driving experience.
Tiago.ev owners have embarked on longer, intercity trips with their car, proving the confidence and the reliability it provides to them. More than 1200 Tiago.evs have each been driven over 3000 kms with 600+ cars having each clocked 4000+ kms on Indian roads – a strong testament on the superiority of the product. The DC fast charging availability which can add 110kms of range in just 30mins makes these long journeys even more convenient. Furthermore, the low cost of ownership acts as an added advantage to the whole package. With almost 90% of the charging being done at home, all customers put together have already saved over INR 7 crore when compared to the running cost of ICE cars.
