The Tata Altroz EV which was showcased in 2020 Auto Expo, will see Tata’s premium hatchback in an EV avatar. The Altroz, which has been a really successful product for the brand, is expected to repeat the history when it comes in the electrified avatar. In this article, we will discuss our expectations of the Tata Altroz EV.
The Tata Altroz EV is expected to be similar to the gasoline-powered Altroz in terms of design. The Altroz EV is expected to get projector headlights, similar to what we see on the Altroz i-Turbo, new grille as well as new alloys which look futuristic in design. The alloys might also sport blue highlights, which is the secondary colour in Tata’s EV cars. The Altroz EV is also expected to be offered in Signature Teal Blue colour which we get to see in the Nexon EV.
Platform & Battery Pack
The Altroz EV will be based on the ALFA-Arc Platform which has been specially developed for the Altroz EV from scratch. The battery pack on the Altroz EV will be a 30.2kWh liquid-cooled, IP 67 lithium-ion pack which could generate around 100bhp. The EV will be based on the company’s Ziptron EV technology on which the Nexon EV is also based. With this, the Altroz, which never got an automatic gearbox, will now see a single-speed transmission (to give the feel of an automatic transmission) come in its EV avatar.
Charging Time & Range
The charging time of the Altroz EV is expected to be an hour on DC fast charging (0-80%). The range of the lithium-ion battery pack on the Altroz is expected to be around 250km on a single charge. If Tata manages to maintain this charging time to range ratio, the Altroz will be a great product for city drives as well as highway drives to nearby places.
The Altroz EV is expected to be loaded with features similar to what we get to see on the regular Altroz. Floating touchscreen, iRA Connected Car Tech, ABS with EBD and dual airbags will be on offer. Moreover, since the car being an EV, will also get regenerative braking to save some battery crunch in some extra miles.
The launch of the Altroz EV is expected to be somewhere around this year. The Tata Altroz EV will be the brand’s first premium hatchback EV which if priced right could take the market by storm.
