Tata Tiago EV was hit by ball twice during the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023, meaning that the company will donate 10 lakh towards enhancing the biodiversity of coffee plantations in Karnataka. The automaker, which was the official sponsorship partner of this IPL season, had announced that each time the ball hits Tiago EV car on display at a stadium, it will make a donation of 5 lakh.

Tiago EV was first struck by a Ruturaj Gaikwad six during a match between Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. The next instance took place during the match between Mumbai Indians (MI) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai when Nehal Wadhera struck the electric car with a ball.
