by Autocar Pro News Desk , 31 Mar 2022

Tata Motors is launching its Tigor EV in Nepal and will sell the vehicle in collaboration  with Sipradi Trading, a Nepal-based dealer network. 

The EV comes with Tata’s Ziptron technology, and is being launched in three variants, with the most affordable one, the Tigor EV XE costing Rs 30 lakh

In a statement, the company said deliveries of the car will commence across the country beginning March 31.  The vehicles are now on display at showrooms and have been made available for test drives across the dealer network by Sipradi Trading 

Mayank Baldi, Head PVIB, Tata Motors, said, “EVs are fast gaining popularity on the back of rising comfort of customers, as the barriers to adoption are being overcome and due to growing preference for environmentally friendly solutions. This has been spearheaded by the Nexon EV, which today is the most popular EV in the markets. The Nepal market has been a strong propagator of EVs, which has indeed inspired us to widen our offerings here."

Rajan Babu Shrestha, Chief Executive Officer, Sipradi Trading said, “The introduction of the new Tigor EV sedan, after the overwhelming response to the Nexon marks another milestone with our partnership with Tata Motors."

Media reports suggest that NADA, the Automobiles Association of Nepal said the government's decision to reduce tax rates on electric vehicles has made customers keen on electric cars in the Himalyan kingdom. It has also been suggested that Nepali customers do not mind having to wait for several months to get their electric cars.
