Tata Motors Electric division has shared official teaser of upcoming Safari Electric, Harrier Electric and Altroz Electric. Tata Motors has been enjoying a healthy head start in the Indian electric vehicle space with the Nexon and Tigor EV. It recently added Tiago EV to its zero emission range but things are not gonna stop there.
Tata Motors has a strong lead in the Indian electric car market with the Nexon and Tigor EV. It just introduced the Tiago EV to its zero-emission lineup, but it’s not stopping there.
While Mahindra plans to introduce the XUV400 electric, Tata Motors hopes to draw attention to its pavilion by unveiling not one, but six electric cars. The Punch EV, Avinya, and Curvv electric concepts are already well-known. Tata Motors Electric division has teased three more prototypes on social media. These appear to be Altroz Electric, Harrier Electric, and Safari Electric, respectively.
Auto Expo 2023
Back at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the electric version of the Altroz hatchback had its international debut alongside its conventional brother. The production version was supposed to enter the market shortly, but the pandemic and the severe chip scarcity it brought with it pushed back the launch date.
The Nexon EV’s electric engine and battery pack are anticipated to be carried over. The 3-phase PMSM motor produces 129 PS and 245 Nm of torque, while the lithium-ion battery pack holds 30.2 kWh. Given the Altroz’s superior aerodynamics and less weight, the ARAI certified range should be somewhat more than the Nexon’s 312 km. 10-80% DC rapid charging is projected to take around an hour, whereas AC charging over a standard 15A socket would take slightly more than 9 hours. Check out the official teaser below.
Tata Motors has previously said that all of its latest models would soon be available in electrified form. As a result, the Harrier and Safari EV teasers come as no surprise. However, no other information regarding the specs has been released.
Tata Harrier Electric, Safari EV
Certainly, the electric SUV twins will have a more powerful electric powertrain and a larger battery pack than the Altroz EV. This is a perfect opportunity for Tata to provide 44 at the very least on the high-end models, but we’ll have to wait and see.
A certified range of 400-450 km would be pretty appealing for these SUVs, requiring a net battery capacity of roughly 60 kWh. Not to mention a slew of aerodynamic enhancements such as improved bumpers, spoilers, wheels, air intake, and so on. In terms of performance, we anticipate a peak output of roughly 200 PS and 400 Nm. A 0-100 kmph acceleration time is expected to fall short of the critical 10 second barrier.
With Mahindra preparing an electric assault with its Born SUV line and the XUV700 Electric created in the UK, the Harrier and Safari EV twins have their work cut out for them. While the Altroz EV is expected to be shown in production-ready shape, the Harrier and Safari twins are more likely to be shown in near-production concept form. The hatchback is scheduled to go into production later this year, with the crossovers following a year or so later.
