Tata Motors unveiled the Altroz to be the first product to be based on the brand's new 'ALFA' platform. It was showcased at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show along with its electric vehicle (EV) version. Although all details of the Altroz EV are not announced yet, we can expect it to be introduced in India by 2021. For now, let's delve into the specifications through this picture gallery.
Most of its styling elements and features are shared with its petrol powered sibling, which will debut later this year. Both cars will be developed on the ALFA (Agile Light Flexible Advanced) platform.
Tata Motors announced that this new platform can be used for many different types of build and will also underpin the Hornbill micro SUV in future. It’s based on parts sharing philosophy.
Powered by a permanent magnet AC Motor, the Altroz EV will come with a single speed gearbox. Interestingly, its battery could be charged up to 80 per cent in just 60 minutes on a quick charge.
With a range of 250-300km on a full charge, we can expect this EV to be a very practical electric car. It looks to be an exciting proposition that should make its India debut sometime in 2020-21.
