New Delhi: Tata Motors has started pan-India deliveries of the Tiago EV hatchback, with the first batch delivering 2,000 units across 133 cities. The company claims to have received more than 20,000 bookings for the Tiago EV so far – with the first 10,000 coming in on the first day.
At the launch, Tata said that the introductory prices will be applicable only for the first 10,000 bookings of the Tiago EV. Tata, however, overwhelmed by the response, extended the introductory prices for an additional 10,000 customers.
The Tiago EV is currently priced between Rs 8.49 lakh-11.79 lakh (ex-showroom, India) but will soon increase as more and more bookings come in.

Tata Tiago EV: Current waiting periods
According to dealer sources, the current waiting time for the long-range Tiago EV is four months, while it is 5-6 months for the medium-range. Retailer sources tell us that the ‘Tropical Mist’ and ‘Teal Blue’ shades are the most sought after. The waiting time for the Tigor EV sedan, on the other hand, is approximately one month for private buyers.
Interestingly, the Tiago EV is finding customers outside the regular metropolitan belts and in states like Uttar Pradesh, Andhra Pradesh, Bihar and Madya Pradesh – a trend that is different from what was seen with the Nexon EV and Tigor EV. Customers in these states are actually opting for the longer-range option, but this may be due to a lack of charging infrastructure, which is still sporadically available in and around major cities.
