– New entry-level CNG model
– Is Rs 50,000 cheaper than the XZ version
The country’s demand for CNG vehicles has increased due to rising gasoline prices and the widespread availability of CNG, which has helped to sustain this trend. Hyundai and Maruti Suzuki were pioneers in the CNG market. Two of Tata Motors’ passenger vehicles, the Tiago and Tigor, have factory-installed CNG kits, making it the third mass-market carmaker to do so. Additional CNG-powered vehicles will follow. Tiago and Tigor CNG were introduced by Tata Motors earlier this year in January 2022. At the time of launch, Tiago CNG was offered in two trim levels (XZ and XZ+) whereas Tigor CNG was offered in four trim levels (XE, XM, XT, and XZ+). The launch of the third Tigor CNG model, the XM, has just been announced by Tata Motors.
A brand-new Tata Tigor CNG XM variant Price starting point for the Tata Tigor CNG XM model is Rs. 7.40 lakh, ex-sh. The Tigor XZ CNG model costs Rs 50k more than this. The price of Tigor gasoline ranges from Rs 6 lakh to Rs 8.29 lakh, while the cost of Tigor CNG is between Rs 7.40 lakh and Rs 8.59 lakh. Everything is ex-sh. Rs 90,000 separates the cost of Tigor gasoline from Tigor CNG. In contrast to the Tigor CNG, which is only offered on the mid and top-spec trims, the Tiago CNG is offered from the base to the second-from-top trim.
Color possibilities for the Tigor XM iCNG version include Opal White, Daytona Grey, Arizona Blue, and Deep Red. With the exception of the addition of i-CNG badging on the tailgate, the exterior designs of the CNG-powered Tiago and Tigor have not undergone many changes. The Tiago iCNG has projector headlamps, LED DRLs, and chrome elements on the outside, with a beige and black color scheme inside.
The Tigor iCNG has automatic headlamps, dual tone-colored roof, rain-sensing wipers, black and beige interior colors, and new seat fabric. Because the CNG kit is now required to fit in the boot, boot space has been compromised. From 242 liters in the petrol model to 80 liters in the CNG version, Tiago’s boot size has been halved. The Tigor’s boot space has decreased from 419 to 205 liters on the petrol model.
Specs for the Tiago and Tigor CNG’s powertrains
A 1.2 liter, 3-cylinder Revotron petrol engine powers the Tiago CNG and Tigor CNG vehicles. This petrol engine has a maximum output of 113 Nm of torque and 86 horsepower. The Tiago and Tigor’s 73 horsepower and 95 pound-feet of torque are reduced in CNG, resulting in a difference of 13 horsepower and 18 pound-feet between the petrol and CNG versions of the vehicles. On both variants, the engine is connected to a five-speed manual. The ARAI claims a 26.49 km/kg fuel economy.
Other CNG vehicles from Hyundai and Maruti are in direct competition with Tiago CNG and Tigor CNG. Maruti Wagon R CNG and the recently released Celerio CNG will be contenders for the Tata Tiago CNG, while Hyundai Aura CNG will be a competition for the Tigor CNG. The Tigor has been a really special vehicle for us, and the inclusion of the iCNG variant has increased our momentum in the market, the vice president of sales, Mr. Rajan Amba is the director of marketing and customer service for Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd. The fact that currently, more than 75% of customer bookings for the Tigor come from the iCNG option is evidence of the high demand for this technology in the Tigor portfolio “as read and reported by www.rushlane.com”.
