Tata is making big strides in the EV space. Last month, it showcased two interesting concepts, the Curvv and the Avinya. The Curvv will be the first to enter production. But Tata has been quite tight-lipped about any details regarding its electric and ICE variants. However, we have got you covered. Today we have some important information regarding the Tata Curvv. Our sources within the company have given us some insider information which you should definitely be excited about. In today’s article, we will discuss some details regarding the Tata Curvv.
ICE engine specifications
Till now, you would have mostly only thought about the Curvv EV. But Tata did confirm that it will be bringing ICE engines to the Curvv as well. So what ICE engine options will we see on the Curvv? According to an internal source, Tata has already started testing two petrol engines for the Curvv. The first engine will be Tata’s 1.2-litre turbo-petrol unit that it uses on cars like the Nexon and the Altroz. Tata could re-tune the engine to produce more power for the Curvv since it will be competing with prominent rivals like the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, etc. These engines are mostly expected to come with manual and automatic gearbox options.
With the second engine, Tata is employing an interesting tactic. According to our sources, Tata will be modifying the 1.2-litre engine block into a 1.5-litre engine block. So how exactly is Tata doing this? Tata will be adding an extra cylinder to the 1.2-litre turbo engine to make it 1.5-litre turbo engine. With these modifications, we expect power figures to touch the 150bhp mark. So will this be sufficient for Curvv? We think it would be more than enough to take on most of the competition. This engine will come with a manual and Tata’s homegrown DCA gearbox option.
Tata Curvv details – Diesel option
We don’t have any information regarding the diesel engine option, but we expect Curvv to get Tata’s 1.5-litre diesel engine only. This 1.5-litre engine does the duty on Tata’s other cars like Nexon and Altroz. Tata will have to re-tune the engine to produce more power.
The Curvv electric is coming within the next 24 months. ICE-powered Curvv will follow the EV after some months. However, a lot of this would depend on the chip shortage and testing of the components.
