Tata Estate was never a gorgeous car to look at, but in its next-generation, it might change the perception of almost everyone. Check out this cool rendering of the Tata Estate EV Concept.
In the early 90s’ Tata Motors launched the Sierra and Estate in the country. While the former was a 3-door SUV that developed a huge fan base for itself, the latter was a station wagon that was not much loved by the market. Recently, at the 2020 Auto Expo, Tata Motors showcased the Sierra EV Concept, but until now, there's no news of the Estate being reincarnated. Given the low demand for station wagon, it doesn't even look like the company would ever think of investing in a Estate 2.0. Nevertheless, our in-house digital artist Shoeb R. Kalania has come up with a digital render to showcase how the Estate EV Concept would look like, that is, if Tata Motors ever plans to create one.
The Estate EV was quite long a car and that long side profile is evident even in the rendering of the new version. In comparison to the Sierra EV Concept, the Estate gets a longer wheelbase and a long bonnet as well. However, major changes start after the B-pillar, as it gets a different B-pillar in comparison to the Sierra EV Concept, rather conventional one. Also, it has traditional rear doors in place of the sliding doors seen on the Sierra EV. Since the original Estate did not feature a fancy glass roof, it has been missed out here as well, but it gets a set of stylish roof rails instead.
The original Estate was based on the Tata Telcoline pickup truck. The Sierra was also underpinned by the same platform. These cars came equipped with same 2.0L 4-cylinder naturally-aspirated Peugeot XD88 diesel engine. It featured 2-valves per cylinder and belted out a peak power output of 63 horsepower. The transmission duties were performed by a 5-speed manual gearbox. The Sierra also featured a 4wd transfer case, which was absent on the Estate. That said, the EV powertrain will also be shared between the two, and the Estate might omit the 4WD option this time as well.

If by any case, Tata Motors plans to resurrect the Estate brand, it will come loaded to the gills. It will get features like a large panoramic sunroof, all-digital instrument cluster, big touchscreen display for the infotainment unit, diamond-cut alloy wheels, and more. Also, the car will feature a lot of safety techs such as ABS with EBD, airbags, traction control system, electronic stability program, roll-over mitigation and the likes. Though this is just an imagination and we are not sure of anything about the Estate EV yet, we would wish to listen about it from the carmaker soon.
