Tata Motors is preparing to introduce the new Nexon EV MAX electric vehicle in the country as early as tomorrow. Following the new Nexon EV Max launch, the homegrown automaker plans to introduce four additional cars in the country over the next year. These models will include two new electric vehicles (EVs) as well as facelifts of the company’s existing models.
Tata Motors is preparing to give its popular Harrier mid-sized SUV a significant mid-life update that will be noticeable. It appears that the Tata Harrier will receive a facelift in the first half of 2023 if reports are to be believed. The new model will be equipped with advanced technologies, cosmetic design changes, and a gasoline engine, among other features.
The new Tata Harrier facelift, which is internally referred to as Project Q5MCE, will feature a new front grille, revised headlamps, and a new set of alloy wheels. ADAS (advanced driver assistance system) as well as a 360-degree camera are also expected to be included in the vehicle. In addition, a new 1.5-liter turbocharged petrol engine with a capacity of around 150 horsepower is expected to be installed in the SUV. The petrol engine is expected to be equipped with an automatic transmission, paddle shifters, and various drive modes.
It will not only be Harrier, but also the Tata Safari that will get a mid-life makeover in 2023. The new Harrier and Safari facelift have already been put through their paces by the company. It will feature updated styling, an upgraded interior, and advanced technologies, as well as a new engine option.
The new Tata Safari facelift is also expected to include an ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System), which will include features such as adaptive cruise control, lane keeps assist, autonomous emergency braking, and other similar technologies. Additionally, a new instrument panel, an updated touchscreen infotainment system, and other features will be included with the SUV. The new Tata Safari facelift is expected to be powered by a 1.5L turbocharged petrol engine paired with an automatic transmission and paddle shifters, similar to the Harrier facelift.
Tata Motors had previously displayed a pre-production version of the Altroz EV at the 2020 International Auto Show. Currently, the hatchback’s production version is being tested by the manufacturer.. Hopefully, it will be available before the end of the year! If you compare it to the conventional vehicle, the new Tata Altroz EV has revised front and rear bumpers, a closed-off grille, air dams with a star pattern, new alloy wheels with blue accents, and a section of the tailgate that is blacked out.
The Tata Altroz EV will also have Blue accents throughout the interior. It is expected to have lighter upholstery as well as a rotary gear selector as standard equipment. The specifics of the powertrain configuration have not been revealed. According to reports, it will be equipped with Tata’s updated Ziptron electric technology, which will be available on the NEXON EV MAX in 2019.
Also planned for introduction in 2023 is an electric version of Tata Motors’ Punch micro SUV, which is expected to be a first in India. It is expected to be the most affordable electric vehicle offered by the brand in our market. It is likely to be powered by the Ziptron EV powertrain technology, which is also used in the Nexon EV and the Tigor EV vehicles. It is expected to have a 30.2kWh lithium-ion battery pack that will power a 129bhp electric motor that will be mounted on the front axle of the vehicle. The Nexon EV is claimed to have a range of 312 kilometers on a single charge. The Punch-based electric vehicle is expected to be equipped with an updated electric powertrain with a range of more than 300 kilometers. The engine’s power and torque outputs will be 100PS and 200NM, to be precise.
