Check out this beautiful looking rendering of a Tata Sierra EV, or the next-generation Tata Xenon, along with a video of the entire design process.
At the 2020 Auto Expo, Tata Motors had managed to impress everyone with two brilliant concept cars- Sierra EV and HBX concept. While the latter had been showcased earlier at the 2019 Geneva Motor show as the H2X concept and was in near-production form, the former was a completely new concept, unveiled to the public for the very first time. Since then, the anticipation for the Sierra has been sky-high, and people have been speculating various details. Here, have a rendering of a Tata Sierra based pickup truck, which looks quite impressive.
Tata Sierra Pickup (Tata Xenon) EV Concept - Rendering | SRK Designs
The rendering seen here has been prepared by SKR Designs, and the video of the design process has been posted on his YouTube channel. There are plenty of changes in this rendered vehicle as compared to the Tata Sierra EV. At the front, we see a redesigned front bumper along with new fog lamps and housings. The side profile has the most changes. The C-pillars and a portion of the roof have been deleted, and the bed bars add a little macho factor to the looks. The car sports high-profile, knobbly tires on custom alloy wheels. There is some plastic cladding also added to the sides, beginning from the front bumper, over the wheel arches and the doors, then margining into the rear bumper, which has also been redesigned.
The little artistic touch with the green-blue camouflage body paint makes this pickup look extremely handsome. That said, we can only comment about the aesthetic department for now. The mechanical specifications of the Sierra EV are completely under wraps, though we speculate that it will have the same electric powertrain as the Nexon EV. There were some reports that suggested that the new Sierra might get petrol- and diesel-powered variants, which would be more practical for the Indian market.
Interestingly, we used to have a Tata Sierra pickup back in 1988 in India, known as the Tatamobile 206 pickup (or Telcoline). The difference, however, is that the Sierra SUV was a derivative of the 206 Pickup and not the other way around. The 206 was later replaced by the 207 Pickup, and later by the Tata Xenon, which still continues to be on retail.
