What should be highlighted is that the newly-developed ALFA platform will aid to accommodate multiple powertrain options including either conventional units, hybrid form or full-electric powerplant options. The possibility of a BS-VI compliant diesel motor is yet to confirm as it is all way costlier than the gasoline counterparts. That said, the all-new Tata Altroz is in all likelihood to spawn EV and hybrid variants.
