Tata Motors has been participating at the Geneva Motor Show since 1998, this-year to commemorate its 20th consecutive year, the Nexon-maker has unveiled the sleek all-electric E-Vision Sedan Concept.
Tata E-Vision Sedan Concept makes its global debut in style at the on-going 2018 Geneva Motor Show. The concept serves as a preview for a new flagship sedan for the carmaker, one that features electrified powertrains and IMPACT 2.0 design philosophy.
On the exterior, the 3 dimensional ‘Humanity Line’ is beautifully crafted in brushed aluminum and runs the entire width of the car. It underlines the grille and lamps of the car which themselves are treated as pieces of high tech ‘jewelry’. The Diamond shaped DLO is defined by another aluminum blade which runs from the A to C pillar, visually lowering the profile of the car.
The rear is characterized by the animated tail lights, which forms a part of the ‘Slingshot’ line that starts at the Tata logo and swings around to the body side, visually pushing the car forward in a precise yet balanced dynamism. While the stance of the Tata EVision is graceful yet strong, the striking silhouette is dynamic.
On the inside, the instrument panel hides two digital interfaces that appear only when needed by the users. The space under the Instrument Panel is completely free from any hindrances and adds to the sensation of space, thus luxury. The rear seats are an area of particular note. Fully adjustable, they give the occupants unmatched knee, and headroom. The rear occupant is cosseted in gorgeous hand crafted materials which are punctuated with subtle technical materials and details.
Leveraging the strength of the OMEGA architecture, the E-Vision sits on an OMEGA platform derived from the Land Rover Discovery’s platform that Tata has branded OMEGA. The company has revealed few technical details as yet but some of the highlights include 0-100 KMPH sprint in under 7 seconds, 300 kms battery range, fast-charging support, and can attain a top speed of 200 KMPH.
The E-Vision Sedan Concept is a design study at this point and the real emphasis is on the flexibility of the OMEGA platform to be modified to host electric power-trains, as well as the interior concept for Tata EVs of the future. However, we can expect the Tata Motors upcoming 5-seater premium sedan rivalling Honda City and Maruti Ciaz, to borrow some design cues from the Tata E-Vision Sedan Concept.
