2020 Tata EVision concept could be the new flagship

Tata EVision concept Geneva

Tata Motor’s usually has a very interesting portfolio lined-up for Geneva. If it was the TAMO Racemo in 2017, this time it was the even more interesting EVision concept. The car is intended to compete with the likes of Honda Civic, Skoda Octavia and Toyota Corolla, arguably as a better package.

Tata Motors’ MD & CEO Guenter Butschek said that they are evaluating the model later this month, and if approved, there will be an-all new flagship sedan on its way. The manufacturer is shifting to an all-new product portfolio early next decade and as the parent company of Jaguar and Land Rover, we expect a lot.

2020 Tata EVision design and specs

The Tata EVision concept is based on a slightly modified version of their dedicated OMEGA EV architecture. This is probably the best application of the IMPACT 2.0 design language as well, and the car looks modern and sophisticated- a stark contrast from the sporty Tata H5X.

While most modern sedans are shifting to sleeker designs, Tata has decided to make theirs strong and bold. At its front, the car gets (new) signature humanity line that connects headlamps, grille and foglamps. This looks good and for some reason, reminds me of Tesla.

Sides and rear are equally impressive, and we really have nothing much to complain!

Tata Evision interior

On the inside, light-coloured premium materials have been used on what is a minimal and futuristic design. There’s a big all-digital instrument console and two advanced digital displays, latter of which are concealed under the bodywork when not in use.

Tata was reluctant to say what powers this electric car but they did reveal that both slow charging (AC) and fast charging are available (DC)

Top speed 200 kmph
0-100 kmph <7 sec

 

So will it be an electric on entering production?

Indian government has been very vocal about their push for complete electrification by 2030. While many manufacturers are already preparing for this, the market is still nascent and not ready for an all-electric car. Tata might however bring out a hybrid variant of the EVision initially and then a completely electric one in its mid-life refresh.
