Tata Motors unveils `Tata EVision' concept luxury EV at Geneva Motor Show

07 March 2018

Tata Motors has unveiled its concept electric sedan, `Tata EVision'. at the Geneva Motor Show 2018, to celebrate 20 years of its presence at the premier motor show.

The EVision concept sedan is the third unveiling for Tata this year and was showcased alongside the H5X SUV and 45X premium hatchback.

Built on a modified Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced (OMEGA) EV architecture, the 'E-Vision Sedan Concept' is capable of attaining a top speed of 200 km/hr.

It can also race to 0-100 km/hr in less than 7 seconds, the company claimed.

The company hits at multiple driver assistance systems as well as a host of connected car technologies.

There is no word on the powertrain or batteries, but Tata Motors says the EVision will do the 0-100kmph dash in seven seconds and then go on to hit a top speed of 200kmph!

''We are committed to the mission of electric mobility and are working to build sustainable future,'' Tata Motors CEO and managing director Guenter Butschek said at the world premiere of the model here.

Tata group chairman N Chandrasekaran and group patriarch Ratan Tata were also present on the occasion.

The concept is modular, scalable and flexible to address the range of performance attributes for long range travel with class defining interiors, Butschek said.

''It powers our electric aspirations. It is one of the most definitive and aspirational product by an Indian OEM and will be a game changer, reiterating our commitment to offer world-class design, technology and drive the EV revolution to build a sustainable future,'' Butschek said.

The concept comes with both slow charging (AC) and fast charging (DC) options. Tata Motors, however, did not share details about the planned timeline for the introduction of the model.

Sources, however, confirmed that the new concept would be presented to the board later this month while the production ready model based on the concept is likely to be introduced between 2020 and 2022.

Tata Motors, which marked its 20th year at the Geneva Motor Show this year, also showcased the 'H5X concept' - a 5-seater premium SUV and '45X concept' - a premium hatchback.

Both H5X and the 45X concepts are globally benchmarked cars that will create future international business opportunities for Tata Motors.
