New Tata Motors Avinya Concept showcases all-electric future - AutoExpress
Tata Motors has pulled the wraps off a new electric concept car, designed to preview the brand’s next-generation of EVs
Indian firm Tata Motors is providing a glimpse at its future electric models with this: the Avinya Concept. The Tata Avinya is a segment-defying model that blends SUV and people-carrier proportions, and it’s underpinned by Tata’s new GEN 3 electric architecture.
The brand claims that a production version of the EV will be launched in 2025, with a raft of other new GEN 3-based cars planned.
The Avinya debuts Tata’s new design language, which is centred around a distinctive LED running light signature that extends across the front and rear of the car.
The Avinya also has a large, illuminated front grille area, but the rest of the look is largely clean and fuss-free.
The overhangs are extremely short thanks to the electric powertrain, and the glasshouse blends neatly into a black panoramic roof. The wheels are diamond cut, low drag items, and the back end is squat with a slim rear window and swollen wheel arches. The Avinya gets digital door mirrors, too.
But while the exterior could resemble the eventual production version, the interior is more outlandish. The Avinya gets suicide rear doors not dissimilar to those of the Rolls Royce Phantom, which reveals a large aperture without a B-pillar.
There’s a slender dashboard and a squared-off steering wheel with an integrated screen, which presumably caters for infotainment duties.
The front seats are trimmed in fabric and leather, and feature integrated seatbelts to allow them to swivel. The second row is closer to a traditional rear bench, and the EV architecture enables a completely flat floor.
Tata is tight-lipped on technical details, but it does claim that the new platform can take on at least 310 miles of range in less than half an hour, when hooked up to a suitable rapid charger.
The architecture will also offer ‘next generation connectivity and advanced driver assistance systems’, and has been designed with all-terrain use in mind.
TATA Avinya Concept - A New Paradigm of Innovation - TATA Motors
The AVINYA Concept is a giant stride towards the next generation of electric vehicles by Tata Passenger Electric Mobility (TPEM). It is an expression of the Company’s vision of a Pure electric vehicle, based on its GEN 3 architecture.
Derived from the Sanskrit language, the name AVINYA stands for ‘Innovation’. The AVINYA Concept introduces a new typology of mobility that liberates enormous roominess and comfort, not restricted by traditional segmentation. It comes packed with new age technology, software and artificial intelligence that work in the background to deliver wellness and tranquillity during transit.
Providing an extremely premium yet simple and calming customer experience, this concept will be fairly accessible to a majority of customers of fast-growing, high-volume segments of today.
With this, TPEM is all set to unleash a new breed of EVs that will redefine the automobile space. This path breaking EV will be introduced to the market by 2025.
