For sometimes, talks were around about new concept SUV by Tata. Now, the company has taken the wraps off its all new electric car Tata CURVV EV in India. The new concept SUV is a departure from the conventional SUV designs. The new electric car is built on the coupe style and is set to be the most expensive car in the current SUV lineup. Needless to say, how much Tata’s electric cars are being liked by the customers in India. Tata’s Nexon has become the most selling EV in India.
On the lauch event, Shailesh Chandra, MD, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles Limited said, “With the concept Curvv, we now enter the Generation 2 EV architecture which will further enhance the adoption of EVs in India by overcoming the current barriers.”
About new CURVV:
In this second generation architecture designed for electric cars, the car gives a range of 400-500 km and the battery in it can be charged faster and with less power. This car can be charged from both AC and DC charging points.
Tata Curvv is a midsize SUV and will be occupied by the Nexon SUV just below it. The length of the Tata CURVV EV concept is the same as that of the Nexon EV, while its wheelbase is about 50 mm more.
CURVV features a sloping roofline and coupé-like design. The exterior design has evident SUV traits like raised ride height, tough cladding and dynamic proportions. The car has got slim upper DRL and triangular headlamp. Signature LED lamps are surrounded by the rear screen and with the horizontal light bar. The front lower bumper has a grooved pattern.

Apart from the electric curve, Tata Motors has also removed the curtain from the ICE CURVV which runs on petrol-diesel. Tata Motors is planning to launch 10 new electric vehicles in the market by 2025. Shailesh Chandra, MD, Tata Motors Passenger Vehicles and Electric Mobility, said that the company is striding towards this plan and this goal will be achieved in time. Curvv’s all-electric format will hit the market by 2024 and will be followed by an ICE version. Although not clear, the new SUV will more likely be based on modular ALFA platform, which is powertrain agnostic.
