This is the boldest electric concept by the company so far.
This is not the first time Jaguar Land Rover has tasted success at the awards - last year the Jaguar F-PACE was named World Car of the Year and World Car Design of the Year.
It shares its platform with the LR-based H5X SUV concept. Well, that's BMW 3-Series territory, and a place where no Tata vehicle has ever been before, and for just this, the eVision has our full attention.
While Tata Motors has not revealed any information in regards to the vehicle's powertrain, we do know that it is built on a modified version of its Omega platform for EVs and that it will come with both slow charging (AC) and fast charging (DC) capabilities.
The Audi e-tron prototype does not wear the traditional prototype camouflage, but instead illustrates its electrification with a specially developed design film. On the outside, you'll notice that the eVision looks like the next logical design step from the Tigor, and that's a good thing.
The EVision breaks the typical three-box sedan template with an nearly fastback-like shape, but, like the Tigor, the boot has a conventional opening. The EVision Sedan Concept offered generous space including headroom and knee room. The use of light color will make the interior look roomier, and the lack of a center console adds more leg space.
But that's no match for the interior, which has a pleasant mix of minimalistic design and a lot of class. We're impressed. Here's a quick run through of what the eVision packs in, in Tata's own words.
Capable of Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) features.
Renault wants both vehicle and service to be integrated into city life at both the governmental and private service level, and says that the plan offers "a highly competitive price/mile ratio".
Also onboard is a "prognostics controller for forecasting service requirements of vital components, predictive energy management based on live traffic and connected technologies such as cloud computing, analytics and geospatial mapping".
APYC protest on PNB fraud issue
The fraud was allegedly perpetrated by billionaire jeweller Nirav Modi and his uncle Mehul Choksi, the promoter of Gitanjali Gems. Axis Bank said its exposure to these entities is just Rs 200 crore and that the bank is not a leader in the consortium.
