At the Auto Expo 2023, Tata Motors unveiled the brand-new Harrier EV concept. The Harrier EV has undergone extensive reengineering for electric even though it is still built on an ICE chassis. Tata did not specify the electric motor or battery specifications, but the company did say that it will have a dual-motor all-wheel drive setup.
At the 2023 Auto Expo, Tata Motors unveiled the internal combustion variant of the Curvv concept. Regarding the Curvv SUV's available powertrain options when it goes into production, Tata Motors has not provided any information. However, given that the Curvv is built on Tata's Gen 2 platform, we may anticipate it to have a single charge range of between 400 and 500 kilometres.
That’s the ICE version of the Tata Curvv concept showcased last year. The production version will make it to market in 2024. #differentbydesign @businessline @TataMotors @AEMotorShow pic.twitter.com/UAt4trQ9qh— Muralidhar Swaminathan (@muraliswami) January 11, 2023
