Along with the production Tata 45X Altroz, its electric concept version will also make its first world premier on March 5.
Geneva Motor Show is one of the biggest events in the world’s automobile industry. At the event in March, the India manufacturer Tata Motor will attend and introduce their latest products, among which is the Tata Altroz EV concept.
As you might know, Tata Altroz is the official name of the previously-called 45X which is just around the corner. And before this car even rolls off the factory, Tata Motors has been working on its electric sibling. The Altroz-based electric model will first appear under the concept form along with the production Altroz at the upcoming Geneva Motor Show on March 5. This mass-produced version might arrive in 2021.

Both the electric and the internal combustion engine versions will share the Alpha Modular Architecture. This platform is confirmed by the carmaker to be common for any models under a 4.3-meter length in the future.
With the electric motors, the Altroz is expected to reach the range of around 220 to 250km. Even though it is within their ability to reach a greater range of 300 to 400km. However, the higher-ranged vehicles might significantly hike up the price and this scenario is compliant with Tata’s strategy of providing affordable models for their targeted customers.
The exterior of the EV Altroz will mostly resemble its ICE version. But, right now, even the look of the Altroz production is not unveiled yet, there is nothing sure about the appearance of the EV version. Based on the common transition from an ICE to an EV, we could predict the exclusion of the front grille as the EV has no need for engine cooling. Besides, different sized alloy wheels and some clique blue painting highlight might make it to the final product.
About the features, the EV Altroz might be packed with the different instrument cluster, new upholstery and upgraded the infotainment system. At the moment, Tata Motors will mostly focus on promoting its soon-to-be-launched premium hatchback Altroz. This vehicle takes great inspiration from the IMPACT 2.0 design language. The Altroz gets projector headlamps with DRLs along with LED tail lamps and rear spoiler. It will be available in both diesel and petrol engine.
