Other than the electric versions of the Tiago and Tigor, the company will launch EV versions of the Altroz and the H2X
Tata Motors, the Indian auto giant, has been quite aggressive with its electrification plans. Other than the electric versions of the Tiago and the Tigor, the company is also working on electrifying the Altroz and the H2X. With this, the company will have the widest portfolio of electric vehicles.
While it has always been known that the company has been working on the Altroz EV, it is now reported the production-spec H2X, which shares the ALFA platform with the Altroz, will sport an electric powertrain. These two vehicles will join the electric versions of the Tiago and the Tigor. .
Speaking on the company’s plans, Guenter Butschek, Managing Director and CEO said,
“We have ensured that future architectures Alpha and Omega both are future-protected for EVs. Apart from working on higher range of Tigor and Tiago EV, our first two offerings on the Alpha architecture will have an EV option.”
The Tata Tiago EV will be pitted against the electric version of the Maruti WagonR, while the Tigor EV will be aimed at the fleet market other than fulfilling the requirements of EESL. The Altroz EV will be a premium electric hatchback that will be an aspiration product, while the H2X EV will become the company’s first SUV/crossover to offer an electric powerplant.
It will be positioned against the Mahindra e-KUV100. Butschek has also revealed that his company is working on electric powertrains that will offer a driving range of 200-230 km on a single charge.
He says that this will ensure an optimum mixture of adequate driving range and affordability. The company is even working on connected vehicle solutions for its upcoming EVs. One can even expect some more electric vehicles based on the company’s ALFA and OMEGA platforms.
