The Tata Altroz Electric will arrive in India in 2020.
Tata Motors has showcased the new Altroz premium hatchback and the Altroz Electric Vehicle at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. Besides these 2 hatchbacks, the company has showcased the Buzzard 7-seater SUV and the H2X micro SUV concept. The Altroz is scheduled to be launched in the second half of 2019, most probably around August.
The company has officially announced the Altroz EV will arrive in India in 2020. In terms of proportions, the hatchback is 3,988mm in length, 1,754mm in width and 1,505mm in height and has a wheelbase of 2,501mm. The EV is equipped with permanent magnet AC motor with single speed gearbox. It can be charged to 80% in 60 minutes and is claimed to offer a range of 250-300km on a single charge.

The Tata Altroz is powered by a 1.2-litre Revotron turbocharged petrol engine that is capable of producing 100.5bhp of power at 5,500rpm and a peak torque of 140Nm between 1,750-4,000rpm. It is quite early to comment whether the hatchback will receive the diesel option. The Altroz could receive the 1.5-litre turbo-diesel engine that currently powers the Nexon compact SUV. This engine produces 108bhp and 260Nm of torque. Both manual and automatic versions are likely to be on offer.

The new hatchbacks are built on the new ALFA modular platform, which is versatile enough to accommodate different body styles and multiple engines including petrol, diesel, hybrid and pure electric. The new Altroz styling is based on Tata’s new IMPACT 2.0 DESIGN language, which we have already seen on the new Harrier SUV. It features the chrome-finished signature humanity line with dual slim headlamps, stylish grille along with piano black ORVM. Also See – Tata H2X Detailed Exterior & Interior Gallery
Inside the cabin, the Altroz hatchback gets sporty all-black scheme with golden finish around AC vents. Chrome enhancement can be seen on the door panels and on the steering. It is equipped with a 7.0-inch floating touchscreen infotainment system and a new TFT cluster display with the new HMI.
