Tata E-Vision EV concept makes its debut at the 88th Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland.
Headquartered in Mumbai, Tata Motors has been participating at the popular Geneva Motor Show since the last two decades. To celebrate this feat, the automaker has decided to take covers off the E-Vision EV concept at this year’s event. Along with that, Tata H5X and 45X which were unveiled at the Auto Expo last month were also put on display. Contrary to speculations about the saloon being underpinned by Tata’s AMP platform, the E-Vision sits on an OMEGA platform derived from the Land Rover Discovery’s platform.
Tata’s Impact 2.0 design language has turned the tables for the domestic brand for sure. The E-Vision boasts of a seamless exterior design with neat contours and minimal quirkiness. Dominating the front fascia is a large grill underlined by Tata’s signature ‘Humanity Line’ and flanked by LED headlamps concealing those Audi-inspired dynamic swipe indicators. Moving over to the side, one can’t help but notice the sleek rear-view mirrors and 21-inch alloy wheels. Flush-fitting door handles look very similar to the ones seen on the Range Rover Velar.
More than a full-size sedan, the E-Vision takes the form of a sporty fastback thanks to its sloping roofline and raked rear windshield. Things are tidy at the rear with LED taillamps blending very well with the strong shoulder line. The ‘Vision’ badging on the bootlid reminds us of Volvo cars and so does the imposing stance of the Tata E-Vision. On the inside, the EV comes with a premium cabin clad with wood, leather and aluminium trims. Displaying its prowess at intelligent interior packaging, Tata Motors has got rid of the centre console and tunnel which has liberated a lot of room up front.
Seated neatly behind the multi-function steering wheel is a digital twin-pod instrument console. To throw out a magnitude of vehicle information, there is a display on top of the dashboard while another one slides out from the lower part to fiddle with the AC, infotainment and other features. The automaker has also managed to liberate ample headroom and legroom at the rear by providing a fully-adjustable rear bench.
Although not much is known about the powertrain, the car is expected to offer 300 kms of range, fast-charging support, top speed of 200 km/hr and the ability to crack 0-100 km/hr sprint in under 7 seconds. While it is believed that the E-Vision EV will be the brand’s flagship vehicle, the car is still in concept form and its realisation will depend on the board’s approval at Tata Motors. The Nexon-maker has also announced that they are working to electrify its entire range of vehicles with mild-hybrid, hybrid or electric powertrains by 2022.
