As of now, India’s battery-powered car market is dominated by domestic carmaker Tata Motors. Although foreign companies like Hyundai or MG have launched electric vehicles in this country, they have not yet been able to compete with Tata. Tata Motors’ portfolio includes electric vehicles priced from Tk 8.69 lakh to Tk 19.54 lakh (ex-showroom). The models included are Tiago EV, Tigor EV and Nexon EV. Currently, if you book any of these cars, you will have to wait for some time to get the keys. Today’s report is to give an idea about the waiting period of Tata electric vehicles in the third week of July.
Tata Motors EV: Waiting period

In other words, customers will have to wait up to four weeks to get the car keys in all three cases of Tiago EV, Tigor EV and Nexon EV. Although all these models have multiple variants available. Individual waiting periods may vary depending on location, dealership, model and variant. Again, if a particular model is available at a dealer in a region, the waiting period will be very short.
