With its early entry into the Indian cheap EV market, Tata has jumped out in front of the competition in terms of first-mover advantage. Tata has stated that it would release 10 new electric vehicles by 2025 in order to maintain its position. Seven of them are already known as of right now (12 May 2023)! The specifics are listed below.
EVs Already in the market :
Nexon Prime EV/Max EV
The Tata Nexon EV, which is available in two versions—the (Electric Vehicle) EV Prime with an (Automotive Research Association of India) ARAI range of 312 km and the more potent Nexon EV Max with an ARAI range of 453 km—is at the top of our list. The vehicle has been in production since the beginning of 2020 and has helped Tata reach its goal of selling 50,000 EVs. Of course, when the Nexon facelift is released later this year, the Nexon EV will receive a significant improvement, and it should follow a similar path in terms of style, functionality, and space.
Tata's electric version of a compact sedan originally debuted as the Xpress-T before the Tigor EV was unveiled by the automaker last year. Nearly every feature of the ordinary Tigor is there, but it also has an electric heart and a range of 306 km that has been verified by ARAI. We spent a week with it and learned a lot about it while trying to figure out how it works.
Within just four months of going on sale, the Tiago EV broke the 1000 unit barrier, following in the footsteps of its more established brothers. It was initially the only EV in the sub-10 lakh class, but Citroen eC3 and the recently released MG Comet EV are now competitors. All of these cars provide us a glimpse of what the A-segment and entry-level B-segment will look like in the future.
Tata’s next round of EVs? :
Tata Harrier/Safari EV
The Harrier EV SUV was one of the standout features of the Tata booth at the 2023 Auto Expo. In terms of exterior appearance, it possessed all the characteristics of the Harrier EV but with notable EV additions such a revised grille, wheels, and tail lamps. A significant portion of the interior is anticipated to be inspired by the Curvv idea and a facelift scheduled for later this year. The Safari EV, a three-row variant, is also anticipated to be born from it.
Tata Curvv EV
Tata will use the Curvv to compete against both (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) ICE and EV vehicles, targeting the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos. It will be unveiled as an EV in the first half of 2022 and have a coupe shape, a 400-500km range, and capacitive buttons all over the inside. Early in 2024, this car is anticipated to enter the market before its ICE brother.
Tata Punch EV
Pictures of the Punch EV appeared online as we were compiling this list, proving its existence or at the very least the fact that it is in development. According to these early spy photos, the Punch has remained almost unchanged, with the gear lever from the ICE-powered vehicle being replaced by a selector dial as the sole significant modification.
Tata Sierra EV
Tata displayed the Sierra concept at the 2020 Auto Expo, drawing on its more than 30-year history manufacturing (Sport utility vehicle) SUVs. At the 23 Expo, which took place three years later, it unveiled the updated concept car with a fresher look. The manufacture of this car has now been officially announced, and Tata has indeed managed to keep the distinctive glass roof, albeit in a slightly modified version. Price estimates for it range from Rs25 lakh to Rs30 lakh.
Recently saw but not heard from :
Tata Altroz EV
The Altroz EV, the penultimate vehicle on our list, was shown off during the 2020 Auto Expo but hasn't been seen since. During that time, Tata had made hints that the Altroz EV would use the Nexon EV (Prime) as a foundation while retaining all of the amenities of the just-launched Altroz hatchback. Only time will tell if it will be launched.
