Meanwhile, on Monday, Tata Motors started the booking process for the Tiago EV, which is set to become the most affordable electric car on the market. The Tata Tiago EV comes as a fully electric version of the popular hatchback. This is the first all-electric hatchback in India. It’s also Tata Motors’ fourth all-electric car, increasing the domestic automaker’s market share in India’s EV space.
Shailesh Chandra, Managing Director of Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility, said of customer response to the Tata Tiago EV that the company had seen thousands of customers rushing to book the car online at the same time, which led to this that the website slowed down a bit. “We have been overwhelmed by the response to Tiago.ev from our retailers and on our website. With thousands of customers trying to book online at the same time, the website slowed down a bit and was restored. We apologize for the inconvenience caused to our customers. All customer inquiries and concerns related to bookings will be dealt with appropriately. India can now go with Tiago.ev ev,” he continued.
