Customers can now buy Tata Altroz in High Street Gold shade, new XT Dark Edition introduced
Tata Motors has silently rejigged the trims of the Altroz hatchback and has brought back the signature Street Gold shade. The Harrier maker has pulled the plug on 4 trims and has added a new trim in their place.
The discontinued petrol trim is the lone XZA (O) while the discontinued diesel ones are XE, XZ Dark, and XZ (O). The company has introduced a new trim called XT Dark Edition which gets the same Black shade as the discontinued XZ Dark.
With the addition of the new Gold shade, the hatchback can now be had in Opera Blue, Arcade Grey, Downtown Red, Avenue White, Cosmo Black, High Street Gold and Harbour Blue colours. There are a total of 7 shades.
Just days ago, a test mule of the upcoming Tata Altroz CNG variant was spotted in Pune. The mule was seen with the usual emission testing kit behind. Likely to be offered only with the 1.2-litre naturally aspirated engine, the model should be available soon in select trims.
Tata is also on an aggressive testing spree of the upcoming Altroz EV. It was first showcased at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show and later at the 2020 Auto Expo in New Delhi.
It is expected to be powered by Tata’s tried and tested electric powertrain, the Ziptron, that powers the existing Nexon EV and Tigor EV.
Exerting 129 PS and 245 Nm, powertrain’s claimed range is in the ballpark of 300 km on a single charge with real-world figures easily above 200 km. But reports say that the Ziptron’s range on the Altroz EV could be as high as 500 km owing to the car’s ALFA architecture that also includes an additional battery pack.
