Tata Motors has made several bets over the years, but its best bet has to be entering the EV segment. Tata’s plan to convert its existing ICE cars into EVs has given the brand a big boost. Last month, Tata launched India’s cheapest EV, the Tiago EV. Now Tata’s next EV could be its premium hatchback Altroz. So what will the Altroz EV range be? In today’s article let’s talk about the details of the Tata Altroz EV range.
Tata Altroz EV – Range Details
Tata has showcased the Altroz EV at various exhibitions and other platforms, but has never revealed the specifications. So what battery option can you get? The Altroz EV is Tata’s premium hatchback and should get the premium treatment. So we expect it to come with a 30.2 kWh battery pack like the Nexon EV prime. This will help Tata differentiate the Altroz EV from the Tiago EV with its 26 kWh battery pack. The Nexon EV with a 30.2 kWh battery has a range of 312 km. We expect Altroz EV to deliver better range due to better dynamics and low weight.
What else do you expect?
Altroz EV will follow the Alfa-Arc Architecture like its ICE counterpart. Design-wise, we expect blue lights on the exterior and the signature Teal Blue color seen on the Nexon EV and Tigor EV. What about the Engine? Like the battery, it could share its engine with the Nexon EV, which could see a 127 hp engine. In the interiors too, Tata can provide blue lights on the door cushions and seats. What about features? Altroz will keep all the high-level features. Apart from that, it can get Regen modes and driving modes.
Start the timeline
Tata has stated many times that it can convert any of its ICE cars into an EV at any given time. So the Altroz EV might make the most sense. ICE Altroz is selling well, but in lower numbers compared to its competitor. So Tata may look to revive its sales by bringing in its EV version. This will also be the first premium EV hatchback in the country. What about the prices? We can expect the price of the Altroz EV to start from Rs 13 lakhs (ex-showroom).
