Tata Tiago CNG and Tata Tigor CNG expected to launch soon in India, Bookings open across dealerships
Tata Motors is all set to enter the CNG passenger vehicle market in India. However, the vehicle manufacturer will not be introducing any new model powered by CNG engine. Rather the company will be introducing the CNG variants of the Tata Tiago and the Tata Tigor. The unofficial bookings for both the Tiago and the Tigor have started across a few dealerships in India.
This roughly means that the Tata Tigor will be the only car that is offered in CNG, petrol, and electric variants. The new CNG variants of Tigor and Tiago will be launched in January 2022. However, the company has not made any official announcement about the launch of the cars.
We are expecting that the new CNG models of Tata Tiago and Tata Tigor will not have any design changes in comparison to the regular variants. The CNG variants are expected to be based on the lower and mid-level variants of the respective cars. The company has not made any revelation about the upcoming CNG variants of the Tiago or the Tigor.
When it comes to engines, the regular models of both cars are powered by 1.2-litre, 3-cylinder Revotron petrol engine. The 1.2-litre engine churns out a power of 86bhp and a peak torque of 113Nm. However, the CNG variant will generate slightly less power than the petrol counterpart. The gearbox will have a manual transmission as a standard.
In terms of cabin features, we expect that the Tiago will have 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system along with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. It will also have voice commands along with steering-mounted controls. The other important features offered on the Tiago and Tigor will include a height-adjustable driver seat, cooled glove box and many more.
When it comes to the price of the Tata Tigor and Tata Tiago we expect a price hike of Rs 50,000- Rs 60,000 over its petrol variants. The Tata Tigor costs somewhere between Rs 5.67 lakh- Rs 7.84 lakh (ex-showroom Bhubaneswar) while the Tata Tiago costs between Rs 4.99 lakh- Rs 7.07 lakh (ex-showroom Bhubaneswar).
