Tata Motors E-VISION Sedan Concept Unveiled; H5X And 45X Showcased

Tata Motors, which marked its 20th year at the Geneva Motor Show this year, also showcased the "H5X concept" - a 5-seater premium SUV and "45X concept" - a premium hatchback. The concept sedan has a coupe-like roofline that features a thick C-pillar. This is also the 20th consecutive year of Tata at the Geneva Show.

The Indian-based automotive manufacturer, Tata Motor has exhibited its E-Vision concept sedan, two weeks after teasing the posters on its social media platforms.

"We are committed to the mission of electric mobility and are working to build sustainable future", Tata Motors CEO and Managing Director Guenter Butschek said at the world premiere of the model here. Also it shows the design language that Tata may follow for its EVs of the future.

While Tata Motors has not revealed any information in regards to the vehicle's powertrain, we do know that it is built on a modified version of its Omega platform for EVs and that it will come with both slow charging (AC) and fast charging (DC) capabilities. At the rear, it gets sleek wraparound LED tail lamps along with the "Vision" badge that spans across the width of the vehicle. However, the grille is larger here and brushed aluminium has been used to good effect to embellish what Tata calls the "humanity line" that underlines the grille and headlights. In 2017, more than one in three cars sold in Norway was battery-driven - a share that seems unthinkable in most other markets at the moment. However, the boot opens in a conventional way, much like the Tigor.

When was the last time that we got excited about a concept vehicle that was limited to 50km/h? The generous amount of chrome aluminum touches and slim tail lamps adds richness at the rear. Further, the sides and the edged bot at the rear gives the vehicle a futuristic and much sportier look. Cover the badge and it is hard to say that this design is from Tata, such is the finesse of it. The EVision concept's interior is an outcome of that philosophy. There's a decidedly premium look to the cabin with a generous use of high-quality wood and upmarket materials. The color theme is light, thereby making it airy. As expected "electric" was the underlying catchword for the event, but there was no scarcity of fossil fuel powered cars as well.

The dashboard houses dual instrument screens. Further, Tata claims that the rear seat will be fully adjustable as well.
