Tata Motors, earlier this year, made their debut in the premium hatchback segment with Altroz hatchback. The Altroz competes with cars like Maruti Baleno, Hyundai i20 Elite, Honda Jazz in the premium hatchback segment. It was first showcased in 2019 at Geneva Motor Show along with other Tata cars and concepts. An electric version of the Altroz hatchback was also showcased at Geneva. Earlier this year, Tata showcased the Altroz EV at the Indian Auto Expo too. Here we have a video that shows a Tata Altroz EV hatchback rendered as an estate car.
The video has been uploaded by SRK Designs on their Youtube channel. The Altroz EV looks identical to the petrol powered version in terms of design. The main difference between both the cars is the presence of blue accents on ORVM, headlamp garnish, lower part of bumper, side cladding and rear. The render video imagines the Altroz EV as an estate car and it does look good. The artist has straightaway extended the rear part of the Altroz EV to give it a proper estate car style side profile.
The design at the rear remains unchanged with LED tail lights. All the sharp lines on the boot is retained to give it a muscular look. The front of the car remains the same with sleek looking projector headlamps, and fog lamps placed right under it. In comparison to the regular Altroz, the air dam is missing as this is an electric version. The other change that artist has made to the estate version is the door handle design. In Altroz and Altroz EV, the door handle for the rear seat is integrated with the C pillar. In the estate version however, the handle bars are placed on the door like the ones seen on regular cars.
The exact specifications of the Altroz EV is not revealed as of now but like the Nexon EV, the electric hatchback is also expected to use the Ziptron technology and wil have an approximate range of 250-300 kms. The battery is expected to get a quick charge feature that allows it to be charged up to 80 percent in just 60 minutes. Tata is expected to launch the Altroz EV in Indian market in future. The render is purely a piece of imagination from the artist and Tata Motors currently has no plans to build a station wagon version of the car. The last station wagon Tata Motors built was the Indigo Marina.
