The Tata Tigor EV, the first Electric Vehicle (EV) ever tested by Global NCAP achieved four stars for both adult and child occupants in the new round of #SaferCarsForIndia crash tests. The all-new Tata Tigor EV was assessed in its most basic safety specification, fitted with two airbags as standard. Further improvement could be made to the Tigor rating by equipping the model with standard fitment of Electronic Stability Control (ESC), side impact protection, 3 point belts in all seating positions and ISOFIX connectors.

Alejandro Furas, Secretary General of Global NCAP said, “Tata has shown consistent safety improvements throughout its fleet range. The Tigor demonstrates that improvements are also possible with EV models, which can pose a technical challenge because of the electric powertrain system. Tata should be recognised and applauded for this commitment to improving their vehicles in response to Global NCAP’s call to democratise vehicle safety.”

David Ward, President of the Towards Zero Foundation said, “It is deeply satisfying to see Tata’s continuing commitment to safety as they innovate with new power train technologies in order to achieve wider environmental and sustainability goals.

“Safety and sustainability improvements are possible for all manufacturers operating in the Indian market, and Global NCAP would encourage them to follow Tata’s lead.”
