Many companies in recent time have started giving a lot of focus on electric cars. Moreover, with many states giving subsidies on electric vehicles, customers are also attracted to them. Tata already has its Nexon EV running on the roads and we are expecting more EV products to come from the company. In this article, we will discuss the Tata HBX EV and what we know regarding it.
The Tata HBX EV will be based on the same ALFA-Arc platform on which the Altroz is also based. The same platform will be seen underpinning the Altroz EV. With the ALFA-Arc platform, the company will be able to bring cars of different body types on a single platform. Moreover, this platform allows accommodating EV technology as well, saving quite some money for the brand.
The HBX EV will also be seen sharing the Ziptron technology, which is currently on the Nexon EV. With this, regenerative braking is possible, giving the range a boost. As of now, data on the Tata HBX EV range is not available. However, if Tata manages to bring the range figures around the 200km mark, it will be a great product for intra-city travels.
Launch & Rivals
The HBX EV is expected to come somewhere in 2022. Also, we expect the HBX to be launched in the electric-avatar before Tiago’s electric-avatar. With the HBX expected to launch sometime this year, it won’t be long before the company plans to bring the HBX EV.
This product will rival cars like the EKUV100, which has also been spotted testing not-so-long-ago.
Tata HBX EV Pricing
The Tata HBX still awaits a launch in the market. With the pricing of the HBX not revealed, it would be difficult for us to give any idea regarding the Tata HBX EV pricing. We will be in a position to speculate the HBX EV’s price once the gasoline-powered HBX is launched.
What about the gasoline-powered HBX?
As mentioned above, the Tata HBX is slated for a launch sometime this year. With multiple spy shots of the HBX surfacing frequently, it won’t be long before the company announces its unveiling. The HBX is expected to be powered by a 1.2-litre 3-cylinder naturally aspirated engine and a 1.2-litre turbocharged engine. On the transmission front, a 5-speed manual and a 5-speed AMT are expected.
It is expected to come with features like the iRA connected car tech, a floating touchscreen, inbuilt navigation, ambient lighting and turn-by-turn navigation.
