This video stems from Raftaar 7811 on YouTube. It captures the real-life testing of the Safari EV. The overall silhouette of the SUV is quite imposing and large. The dimensions certainly remind us of the regular Safari. This SUV is under a heavy camouflage. Still, the design and shape of the body make it evident that this is the electric version of the Safari. At the rear, we see the connected taillamps, rear wiper and a roof-mounted spoiler with a shark fin antenna. The upright and boxy stance has been carried over from the existing Safari.

On the sides, the massive wheel arches and alloy wheels are visible. However, the exact design of the alloys is undercover. There is a black cladding on the door panels. At the front, we witness the latest design philosophy of Tata Motors with a sleek element which will likely accommodate the LED light bar, LED headlamps on the extreme edges of the bumper and a large grille section which would be sealed off in this case since this is an EV. All in all, the appearance of the Safari.EV won’t be all that different from the regular Safari. Still, there will be enough elements to set the two apart.

Expected Specs and Price
Currently, reports suggest that the Harrier and Safari EV will have front-wheel-drive setups. Interestingly, optional dual-motor versions will add all-wheel-drive systems to both SUVs. Both vehicles are expected to have 60 kWh battery packs, providing an impressive range of over 500 km. Furthermore, both the Harrier and Safari EVs will include advanced EV features such as vehicle-to-load (V2L) and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) charging capabilities. This means that these EV SUVs can not only charge their own batteries but also provide power to external devices or charge other electric vehicles. We expect the prices to be in the Rs 30 lakh – Rs 35 lakh, ex-showroom bracket.
