Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Limited, the electric arm of domestic car maker Tata Motors, is all set to unveil a new electric vehicle (EV) on April 29, 2022. The company plans to launch about 10 new EVs in the next five years.
The automaker tweeted, “Explore a new peace. Active. 29.04.2022?”
Although Tata Motors has not released any details about its upcoming EV, according to media reports, the upcoming EV could be an electric version of its Altroz hatchback or a longer range version of the Nexon EV with a larger battery pack.
Tata Altroz EV
Unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show as a pre-production concept and unveiled at the Indian Auto Expo 2020, Tata Motors Altroz EV is one of the company’s most anticipated electric vehicles.
The production version of the upcoming Altroz EV may have the same exterior design features as the IC engine-powered brother, but will have blue highlights on the outside and inside to indicate its EV powertrain. The Altroz EV will also have a newly designed alloy wheel.
On the other hand, the features of the Ultras EV remain a mystery as the automaker has not released any details about its battery and powertrain.
However, the battery-powered version of Tata’s premium hatchback will remain on the same Ciptron platform. The Altroz EV can be expected to offer a driving range of around 300 km on a single charge.
Also, the new Altroz EV comes with a fast charging capability that can charge from 0 to 80 percent in 60 minutes.
In terms of features, the Ultras’ complete electrical variant can come with standard bells and whistles, such as a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, cruise control, semi-digital instrument cluster, ambient lighting and integrated vehicle technology.
Tata Nexon EV with long range
According to the report. Tata Motors is working on a longer version of its Nexon EV SUV, which can reach a range of about 400-450 kilometers on a single charge.
In terms of performance, the long-range Nexon EV will probably outperform the mid-size SUVs of the MGZS EV, Hyundai Kona, Hyundai Creta and KIA Seltos. Its predecessor is like Nexon.
It is expected to have a larger proportion than the standard Nexus and feature different styles of front and rear profiles.
It is speculated that the Nexon Coupe will initially receive an EV powertrain but will have a larger 40kWh battery pack.
The new SUV is expected to come with an upgraded electric motor, and it will produce more power and torque than the standard Nexon EV.
