Tata has introduced the second-generation electric car concept named CURVV. Even though the car gets a very straight line design, the name comes from the sloping roofline that gives it an SUV-Coupe look. The new SUV is based on the second-generation platform. It will be the first Tata car that will first come to the market as an EV and at a later stage, it will get Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) as well.
Tata Motors did not reveal the changes in the platform. However, it has more space for batteries, which adds range to the vehicle. Tata Motors also did not reveal the range of the car. However, it indicated that the car will get a claimed range between 400 to 500 km.
The Tata CURVV is the first of its kind car in terms of design. It gets an SUV-coupe look that makes it unique. Even though it is a pre-production concept, the design of the production vehicle will remain the same.
The cabin gets a neat and clean design. There is a fully-digital instrument cluster and a two-spoke steering wheel. There is another infotainment screen. The all-new Tata CURVV is a four-seater vehicle.
Speaking at the event, Mr Shailesh Chandra – Managing Director, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd., and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd. ecstatically said,
“With a fantastic year gone by, it gives me immense pleasure to announce a flying start to the new year, with a brand new ‘promise’, a brand new ‘thought’ and a brand new ‘design’ – all put together in this magnificent Electric SUV Concept – CURVV. Our focus here has been to enable customers with a product option that is the perfect amalgamation of modern functionality and design. With a robust SUV DNA at its core, and a plethora of new-age materials, features and interfaces, we are confident that this Coupe Concept will redefine mainstream SUV design. Furthermore, with the concept CURVV, we now enter the Generation 2 EV architecture which will further enhance the adoption of EVs in India by overcoming the current barriers. With this new architecture, we will strengthen the key pillars of Range, Performance and Technology, while retaining Safety and Reliability as hygiene offerings.”
