Tata Motors unveils electric concept at Geneva Motor Show

Since the Omega architecture is not an all-electric platform, the concept sedan could also form the basis of Tata's first-ever future D-segment sedan that could go up against the likes of the Skoda Octavia, Toyota Corolla Altis and the Hyundai Elantra.

The 2018 Geneva Motor Show holds significance for Tata Motors as it is the 20 year for which the Indian vehicle maker has participated in this sphere of automotive showbiz.

The H5X and the 45X concepts are globally benchmarked cars that will create future worldwide business opportunities for Tata Motors. Further details are still hidden, but look for more news later this summer. However, the grille is larger here and brushed aluminium has been used to good effect to embellish what Tata calls the "humanity line" that underlines the grille and headlights.

Unlike the flashy 45X and H5X, the E-Vision looks elegant and mature. However, the boot opens in a conventional way, much like the Tigor. The generous amount of chrome aluminum touches and slim tail lamps adds richness at the rear. Surfacing is crisp and clean throughout and you wouldn't be wrong to think the concept is from a premium European carmaker; the execution is that good.

The EVision Concept is based on Tata's Impact Design 2.0 design language.

Like the other two concepts, the EVision also looks like a design study at the moment. The Geneva auto show is also the premiere venue for luxury sports cars and imaginative prototypes. "Its benches are comfortable and made for lounging, without division between passengers; and its screens show useful information about the city that helps everyone, even those who don't use Renault EZ-GO". "It gives you a complete new play there".

Inside, there aren't a lot of buttons to be found on the dashboard, which features a very clean appearance, interrupted only by the occasional LCD display or aluminum air vent. The absence of a centre console frees up space at the front while the adjustable rear seat setup lends to the car's appeal. This is called the EVision Sedan Concept. Tata's subsidiary Jaguar Land Rover has already announced that it will electrify most of its vehicles by 202o. It comes with advanced driver assistance systems and has integrated connected technologies like cloud computing, analytics and geo-spatial mapping.

In the wake of the Diesel emissions scandal that saw several major vehicle makers manipulate emissions test results, electric mobility will certainly play a major role at this year's show as the industry strives to demonstrate its commitment to a cleaner future.
