Tata unveils its Curvv EV coupe concept
The new Tata Curvv concept — an electric SUV coupe that will be positioned above the Nexon EV in Tata’s line-up, has been revealed. It will be a midsize SUV coupe.
While the final name for the production-spec SUV has not been decided yet, the model is set to be launched in the Indian market within the next two years.
In terms of styling, the new Curvv concept showcases Tata’s new ‘Digital’ design language that is set to be used by the rest of its SUV range down the line. From the front, the Curvv concept has a striking and minimalist look with a full-length LED light bar and a neatly sculpted bumper with triangular housings for the headlights.
The coupe’s sloping roofline integrates into the Curvv’s notchback-styled boot as well as a strong shoulder line, squared-off wheel arches and body cladding that add to the SUV’s ruggedness. At the rear, various design elements from the front have been mimicked, such as the full-width light bar tail-light, an angular bumper and triangular air vents.
The Curvv concept is also going to use Tata’s Generation 2 EV architecture, which has been designed to accommodate multiple body styles and powertrains. The Gen 2 architecture, similar to the Gen 1 seen in the current Nexon EV, uses existing Tata platforms, but heavily modifies them to fit larger batteries and different powertrain options. The Curvv’s platform will also be capable of accommodating a dual motor set-up, giving it an all-wheel drive layout.
Tata is not planning on offering a hybrid version of the Curvv, and will instead launch it as an EV, with an internal combustion engine (ICE) version following later. The production-spec Curvv is also expected to achieve a certified range of 400-500km.
On the inside, the Curvv concept sports a clean and minimalist design all throughout the cabin. There is a sculpted, three-layer dashboard that consists of a fabric material on top, an LED light strip running the width of the cabin and a black, angular section at the bottom.
Some standout design elements on the dashboard include the two free-standing digital screens — one for the infotainment system and one for the instrument cluster, with the new two-spoke steering wheel design. The cabin also features a panoramic sunroof and floating centre console layout with a gap between the climate control switches and the area that houses the rotary gear selector and centre armrest.
