Tata Motors marked its 20th year in Geneva with the unveil of the E-Vision electric sedan concept created under the IMPACT 2.0 design philosophy.
The exterior design is based on 3 key design elements:
- The 3D ‘Humanity Line’ crafted in brushed aluminium runs the entire width of the car, underlining the grille and headlamps which are treated as pieces of high tech jewelry.
- The ‘Diamond shaped DLO’ is defined by another aluminium blade which runs from the A to C pillar, visually lowering the profile of the car.
- The rear is characterized by 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.
As for the interiors, the dashboard hides two digital interfaces that appear only when the users require it, adding a sense of space and luxury. The rear seats are fully adjustable, giving the occupants more knee and headroom.
Tata Motors said that the E-Vision is built on the Omega EV architecture – a modular, scalable and flexible architecture.
Key technology highlights of the concept include:
- Predictive energy management systems based on live traffic data
- Connected technologies such as cloud computing, analytics, geo-spatial mapping and increased human-machine interface
- Capable of ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) features
- Prognostics controller for forecasting of service requirements leading to life cycle management of battery packs, which will be extendable to full vehicle
- DC fast charging option
As for the performance, 0-100 km/h acceleration is claimed to be under 7 seconds, and top speed is 200 km/h.
