The redesigned Tata Tigor Global EV, the first electric vehicle tested by Global NCAP, received a four-star accident rating for both adults and children. This test is part of the SaferCars for India safety monitoring program.
Thus, in terms of safety, the Tigor EV matches the Tigor combustion engine, which received four stars in last year’s GNCAP competition. The Tigor EV deserves a four-star safety rating for both adults and children. It is believed that the space between the body and the legs is unstable.
Both the petrol and electric versions receive 4 stars. India’s automotive program started in 2014.
