A 15A plug point is capable of charging a device from 0% to 80% in around 8 hours and 45 minutes. This can be easily achieved if the user charges the electric vehicle overnight and which successfully makes the tank full. The method of charging Tata Tigor at homes is convenient as well as cost-friendly, with a cost of Rs.8 per unit. Hence the cost to charge a full tank will be Rs. 208.
Users of the Tata Tigor EV can expect to travel between 180 and 200 km on a full charge when traveling within the city’s speed limits. Theoretically, a full charge should last for five or a week’s worth of travel if you travel an average of 30 to 40 kilometers each day. The batteries can be charged to 0% to 80% using a 25 kW DC fast charger in 65 minutes. You must spend between Rs. 18 and 20 per unit while using DC fast charger. So in just over an hour, a full tank would cost Rs. 520.
