Tata is aiming big for a global presence and will be present prominently in the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. Now, the latest reports suggest that the company will showcase the E-Vision Sedan at Geneva. This motor show, which is one of the biggest in the world, has been a regular for Tata and the company has been making its presence felt there for 20 years now. Therefore, there is a good probability that the company will showcase the near production ready version of the sedan at the Geneva motor show.
This is further strengthen by the recent comment made by Guenter Karl Butschek, managing director and chief executive of Tata. During his conversation with Business Standard, he said that this is part of a long-term plan to be future-ready for sustainable mobility. He further added :
“I can’t promise much but stay tuned to the announcements in the coming weeks. You will actually see something that reminds you of the EVision sedan, but on the Alpha architecture,”
Tata showcased the E-Vision concept electric sedan last year at Geneva Motor Show only. It’s based on a new electric version of the Omega platform (shared with Land Rover) that’s modular. This means that the platform can be used on carious different vehicle types like hatchbacks, SUVs, sedans MPVs etc. It will rival the likes on Honda City and the Hyundai Verna when it will be finally ready in production form. It is part of Tata’s push for electric mobility which has already resulted in yielding the Tigor EV.
Apart from the E-Vision sedan, Tata is expected to showcase many other exciting vehicles at the motor show too. This includes the near-production ready 45X, 45X EV, H7X concept and the Hornbill concept. All of these are the new wave of Tata vehicles which are made and designed with international expertise and are aimed at a larger audience. The recent Tata Harrier SUV is an example of the direction the company is moving in and this will definitely improve in future. The H7X SUV is among the most anticipated vehicle by Tata currently and it will essentially be a 7 seater Harrier with further enhancements.
The company recently launched the Harrier SUV which has been getting a pretty good response from buyers. The Harrier is also based on the Omega platform and is styled according to the new Impact 2.0 design philosophy. The base variant has been priced at Rs. 12.69 lakhs which is quite value for money considering how impressive the car is. The Harrier is the largest car in its segment and also the most feature rich vehicle in its class. It rivals the likes of Mahindra XUV500 and the Jeep Compass along with the upcoming MG Hector and the Kia SP2i compact SUV.
