The electric sedan has an output of 74bhp and 170Nm of torque with a zero to 60kmph acceleration time of 5.7 seconds. It also supports CCS2 charging with support for fast charge as well as from any 15A plug point. When connected to a fast charger, the battery can be topped up from zero to 80 per cent in about 65 minutes. Tata Motors also claims an ARAI certified range of 306km.
