Tata CURVV has introduced the concept of second generation electric vehicles. Although the car gets a very straight line design, the name comes from the sloping roof line which gives it an SUV-Coupe look. The new SUV is based on the second generation platform. It will be the first Tata car to hit the market first as an EV and later as an internal combustion engine (ICE).
Tata Motors has not disclosed changes to the platform. However, it does have more space for batteries, which adds range to the car. Tata Motors also did not reveal the range of the car. However, it did indicate that the car would have a claimed range of 400 to 500 kilometers.
Tata CURVV is the first car of its kind in terms of design. It gets an SUV-coupe look that makes it unique. Although this is a pre-production concept, the design of the production vehicle will remain the same.
The cabin gets a neat and clean design. Includes a full-digital instrument cluster and a two-spoke steering wheel. There is another infotainment screen. The brand new Tata CURVV is a four-seater car.
Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Shailesh Chandra – Managing Director, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Ltd., and Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Ltd. said with pleasure,
“As a great year goes by, it gives me great pleasure to announce a flying start to the new year, a brand new ‘promise’, a brand new ‘thought’ and a brand new ‘design’ – all combining the great electric SUV concept.” – CURVV. Our focus here is to enable customers with a product option that is the perfect combination of modern functionality and design. With a strong SUV DNA at its core, and an abundance of new age materials, features, and interfaces, we’re sure this coupe concept will redefine mainstream SUV design. Furthermore, with the CURVV concept, we now enter the Generation 2 EV architecture that will further improve the adoption of EVs in India by overcoming the current barriers. With this new architecture, we will strengthen the core pillars of range, performance and technology, as well as maintain safety and reliability as a hygiene offer. “
