Tata Motors thrilled the 2018 Auto Expo attendees by showcasing the company’s most ambitious concept, the Racemo. The Indian vehicle manufacturer last showcased the Racemo at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show. The stylish and aerodynamic performance concept is built on a wholly new modular platform called MOFlex MMS, which might also make it to the company’s future hatchbacks, sedans and SUVs.
The TAMO (Tata Motors) Racemo is powered by a 1.2-litre Revotron four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine which generates about 188bhp of power. Back in October 2017, the mid-engined Racemo earned a Gold category German Design Award for International Excellence for its ‘Exceptional Product Design’. Power is delivered to the rear wheels via an advanced automated 6-speed transmission (AMT) using paddle shifters on the steering wheel. The company claims that the vehicle is capable of sprinting from 0-100kmph in under six seconds. The company will also introduce a standard version of the Racemo.
TAMO also showcased the third variant, a pure electric version of the Racemo, called the Racemo+ EV. The EV version of the Racemo measures 3,985 mm in length, 1,824 mm in width and 1,208 mm in height. It is 150mm longer and 14mm wider than the regular Racemo. The two-seat sports coupe is powered by a 150 kW electric motor that operates at a peak voltage of 400 V. The company claims that the Racemo has a maximum speed of 200km/h and a driving range of 350km.
