Tata H2X micro SUV based electric vehicle to be priced under Rs 15 lakh.
Tata Motors has officially announced that the production version of the H2X micro SUV concept will be launched in the second half of 2020. The production version of the SUV is most likely to make debut at the 2020 Auto Expo. What’s interesting is that Tata is also working on the pure-electric version of the H2X micro SUV.
Tata had showcased the Altroz EV at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. This model will be launched in India in 2020. Speaking to ET Auto, Guenter Butschek, CEO and MD, Tata Motors said that the company’s first two offerings on the new ALPHA platform will have an electric option. This clearly suggests that the Tata Hornbill mini SUV will come with an electric version as well.
He further said that Tata Motors is working on a higher range of 200km to 230km per charge model. The company is also aiming at aggressive pricing for the upcoming electric vehicles. Butschek also said that Tata will price all the future electric cars under Rs 15 lakh. The company is also working on a connected vehicle solution platform for all its electric vehicles.
