Tata EVision Electric Concept Could Spawn A Premium Sedan- All You Need To Know

The Tata EVision electric sedan concept had everyone’s attention at this year’s Geneva Motor Show.

Just like the H5X and the 45X, the Evision is equally bonkers to look at.

With its sleek exterior design and a futuristic cabin, we can only imagine what the final production iteration of the Evision is going to look like.

So far there has been no official word from Tata Motors regarding this concept going into its production version.

However, there have been numerous speculations of this concept spawning into a c-segment sedan to compete with the likes of Maruti Ciaz, Honda City and the Hyundai Verna.

Interested in knowing more about the Tata eVision and what its possible production model might look like? Well, here is a detailed report bringing you every small detail of what could be a mid-size sedan for the Indian market.

Tata eVision Concept- Introduction

2018 Geneva Motor Show Tata E-Vision Concept 5

The automaker showcased the E-Vision concept marking their 20th year at the Geneva Motor Show.

While the concept is electric, it is simply a design exercise for the upcoming Tata premium sedan.

In production guise, it will be propelled by a petrol and a diesel engine. The E-Vision concept claims to accelerate to 100 kph from standstill in under 7 seconds.

The concept offers a maximum speed of 200 kph as well.

Tata eVision Concept- Exterior Design

The latest concept from Tata Motors has been unveiled at the ongoing 2018 Geneva Motor Show. The concept features the latest Desing Impact 2.0 design language by Tata.

The upcoming Tata H5X SUV and the 45X premium hatchback share the same design language. The Tata E-Vision concept features sharp edges all around.

The headlights look similar to that of the BMW i8, except the fact that the i8 uses laser-based lighting. The Tata concept features LED headlights instead.

The humanity line prevails with the grille sporting a starry night theme with a distinguishingly bold humanity line running across.

The roofline features coupe-like styling earlier seen on the H5X and the 45X concepts. The rear design looks much more sensible than otherwise seen on the 45X concept.

All the accentuating lines like the humanity line up front, the line from A-pillar to the C-pillar etc are all finished in aluminium.

The rear features animated tail lights that form a part of the ‘Slingshot’ line that starts at the logo in the middle and extend outwards. The roof is surprisingly see through and hints at the automakers introducing sunroof on their products.

Tata eVision Concept- Launch Date

Launch Date (expected)Early 2020(Est)

Tata has not revealed any official plans as to when this car will hit the market.

Since the Nexon, Tata carries most of the design elements from the concepts to their production models.

We expect the Tata E-Vision Concept to actually launch before the 45X based premium hatchback.

While Tata is expected to launch the SUV first which will come in both 5-seater and 7-seater versions. We expect the compact sedan by Tata to launch by early 2020.

Tata eVision Concept- Price in India

Minimum PriceRs 7 Lakh(Est)
Maximum PriceRs 11.5 Lakh(Est)

Tata Motors has launched various fresh products over the last two years.

While these new Tata provide a refreshing take on the cars offered by the automaker, their pricing is what attracts a customer the most.

Tata works extensively to keep the final cost in check while the offered product offers comparable features and premium design.

Tata E-Vision Concept will embark on the same journey offering premium design and features at a really competitive price.

We expect Tata to price the upcoming premium sedan between INR 7 lakh to INR 11.5 lakh.

Tata’s answer to the Honda City, the new E-Vision Concept features revolutionary exterior design. The shark nose type edgy hood features bold character lines.

The LED headlamps are squeezed into a sleek opening. The humanity line runs below the headlamps and the front grille from corner to corner.

The front grille is a single, partially transparent unit with starry night theme and the Tata logo sticking out.

The concept is actually based on the Tata’s Advanced Modular Platform (AMP) that underpins its latest concepts.

Tata eVision Concept- Interior Features

2018 Geneva Motor Show Tata E-Vision Concept 10

The Tata E-Vision concept features a spacious interior and the coupe-like sloping roofline doesn’t seem to affect the headroom for the rear passengers.

The dashboard features a clean and productive layout. The driver’s instrument cluster features a LED display that only turns on when required.

The infotainment display lied under the top portion of the dashboard.

The aircon controls are touch screen too and their controlling unit rolls out from the bottom of the dashboard and rolls back in when not in use.

The wood insert running across the dashboard looks classy while the same insert is carried over to the door trims as well.

There are only five physical controls on the dashboard, most to get access to the various screens that further control other features.

The Tata E-Vision is an electric concept but still offers paddle shifters behind the steering wheel meaning the electric motor is attached to an automatic gearbox.
