Tiago EV Features
The Tiago EV will be justifying the premium in price by offering some additional features when compared to the standard ICE vehicle. The Tiago EV will reportedly come with cruise control and multiple re-gen modes. Different modes will help with better experience with re-generative braking. This will ultimately provide more range to the rider. The Tiago EV is also expected to get multiple driving modes including a Sports mode.

Tata Motors is also expected to launch a XPres-T variant of the EV which will be slightly underpowered compared to the passenger vehicle with a range above 200 km.
Tiago EV Design
In terms of design, the Tata Tiago EV will be launching with the typical blue colour paint job which we’ve seen with the Tata Nexon EV and Tata Tigor EV. The company will be using blue accents on the grille and interiors to highlight the EV nature of the car.
