Tata Motors unveils electric concept at Geneva Motor Show

Geneva: Renault wants to launch an EZ robo-taxi service, while Audi shows off its all-electric prototype

Think, Indian Tesla. Well, that's how sharp the vehicle looks, and if Tata manages to put this into production as is, it'll probably be the classiest design that's come out of Tata Motors, ever! Similarly, there is silver trim on the lower edge of the bumpers and along the door sills and window line.

Tata Motors is committed to the Indian Government's mission of electric mobility. The generous amount of chrome aluminum touches and slim tail lamps adds richness at the rear. Upholstered in wood and leather, the concept sure does look premium. The dashboard is a floating type one. Until the start of series production, nearly 250 development vehicles will complete testing under extreme conditions worldwide and this is one reason why you see a camouflaged auto make its way on the stand at the Motor Show.

The dashboard itself is minimalist in design and is home to dual instrument screens (a hidden screen atop the dash and a retractable screen at the base of the dash) that remain concealed when not in use. The absence of a centre console frees up space at the front while the adjustable rear seat setup lends to the car's appeal. The concept sedan has a coupe-like roofline that features a thick C-pillar. As pr the engineers from Tata, there have been enough changes made to the underbody, to make it suitable for an EV.

The EVision concept is built on the Omega platform, which is shared with Jaguar Land Rover. Christened the E-Vision concept, the electric vehicle is based on a slightly modified version of the modular OMEGA (Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced) ARC platform that also underpins the H5X SUV.

Audi's parent, the VW Group, is part of a multi-carmaker consortium backing a comprehensive high-speed DC fast-charging network across European highways.

Connected technologies such as cloud computing, analytics, geo-spatial mapping and increased human-machine interface.

"Audi sets an important milestone for the company's future with its first purely electrically powered model", said Rupert Stadler, chairman of Audi, who's come in for much criticism in recent months for his role in VW's dieselgate scandal. The vehicle also features advanced driver assist systems (ADAS) and a predictive energy management system.
