Most impressive Indian vehicle at Geneva Motor Show was Tata’s Megapixel, which was unveiled today. Tata Motor’s managing director Mr. Prakash Telang stated that The Megapixel “is the result of the progress we have made on the Pixel”.
New Megapixel run on three-cylinder turbodiesel engine driven by four electric motors, one mounted in each wheel. They are powered by a 13kWh lithium-ion phosphate battery pack that helps give the Megapixel an all-electric range of 86km. The batteries can be recharged using an induction charging system. When electric power is depleted, a 30bhp 325cc single cylinder petrol motor kicks in to extend the range up to over 900km. It can reach a maximum speed of 110kph. Turning radius of Megapixel is just 5.2 metres which is quit impressive
New Megapixel features double sliding doors on each side to boost cabin access. The MegaPixel has also been designed to accommodate a wide range of power train options which include hybrid and full-electric sources. The absence of B-pillars results in a spacious, easily accessible four-seat cabin, which boasts even more space in the floor areas as the seats are cantilevered on the centre tunnel. There are options for your smartphone which can be mounted and full integrated into the front cabin, and a large touchscreen sits in the centre console to control the interior’s major functions.
Tata’s Megapixel sales are not yet been confirmed but The next generation Nano can borrow some similar styles of Megapixel, which is expected to go on sale in Europe by 2015.
