Tata unveils the Altroz EV at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, with an expected launch in 2021.
The new Tata Altroz will be available with petrol/diesel powertrains as well as an electric one, with the conventional model getting ready for launch and the EV to be launched later in 2021. The Altroz follows Tata’s Impact Design 2.0 styling, which was first seen in the Tata Harrier.
The car gets LED headlamps mounted above the front bumpers, which slightly resemble the harrier SUV and dual function LED DRLs. The showcased vehicle is finished in an electric blue paint scheme. The grille is finished in a metallic black paint scheme to accentuate the fascia of the car. The grille does not feature any vents that allow air into the engine block as the car is an EV. It also gets pillar-mounted door handles for the rear doors, keeping the lines of the cars pretty neat. Altroz gets protruding LED tail lamps, stylish tailgate and chrome finisher to give the rear-end a stylish appeal. The vehicle sits on machine cut 16-inch alloy wheels.
Altroz is the first Tata car to be based on new ALFA (Agile Light Flexible Advanced) Architecture. ALFA is a highly flexible platform that is capable of housing multiple body styles and powertrains including petrol and diesel engines and even electric motors and batteries. The ALFA platform optimises cabin space and also provides plenty of room in the boot as well.
The specifications of the electric powertrain on the Tata Altroz haven’t been revealed yet. However, it is likely that the vehicle will have a real-world driving range of about 200-250 kms on a full charge.
