Auto Expo 2023: Tata Motors is gearing up to showcase the Avinya and the Curvv concept SUVs at the upcoming Expo. Both of these models will be on display along with the new Tata Punch EV, which is set to be one of the brand's major debuts for 2023. The Avinya and the Curvv concepts were unveiled by Tata Motors in April last year. While the former is a brand-new electric vehicle that is built utilizing Tata's more sophisticated Gen 3 architecture, the Curvv, on the other hand, is primarily a midsize concept coupe SUV that previews the company's 2nd-Gen EV architecture. Both cars also provide a sneak peek of the design and functionality that the upcoming models by Tata Motors might offer.
Speaking of the Curvv concept SUV, it sports a coupe-like roofline, a connected DRL arrangement, and triangular-shaped headlights that give the EV a futuristic appearance. The Curvv electric SUV has connected tail lamps and a high-mounted stop lamp that wraps around the rear windscreen at the back. Wheel arch claddings are added to the car's side, giving it an even more SUV-like appearance. The front and rear bumpers, side skirtings, and alloy wheels all have a grooved design.Tata asserts that the Curvv EV's shape enhances both its aesthetic appeal and aerodynamics.

The Curvv electric SUV has a very simple interior design. The groove pattern continues on the dashboard and the steering wheel's flat bottom. The dashboard has an illuminated line that runs across it. As the name implies, the Curvv's whole design is made up of lines and curves. A large panoramic sunroof that virtually blends with the rear spoiler is also available.
The Hyundai Creta, the Kia Seltos, and the MG ZS EV are some of the models that will rival the Curvv concept SUV. Tata Motors is anticipated to price the Curvv EV between Rs 20 lakh and Rs 30 lakh (ex-showroom), taking into account that it will be placed above the Nexon EV and the price range of its competitors.
Coming to the brand-new Avinya concept, Tata Motors plans to break into a fresh body style with the SUV. Starting at the front, the Avinya Concept's bumper is a large rectangle. It also includes two U-shaped louvres and a mesh design. However, there is no brand logo on the hood. Tata Motors took it a step further by equipping the Avinya with LED DRLs that stretch across the width of the two-toned bonnet and merge in the centre to form a "T." The Avinya features shorter side overhangs and swirl-shaped 22-inch wheels that are pushed to the edges. The black roof is low and flat, extending all the way down to the C-pillar. The crisp L-shaped black inserts on the doors give the body a flat and sleek appearance. The butterfly doors that open in the centre are a first for any Tata concept vehicle. The design details at the back get quite intriguing. Instead of being flush with the back fenders, both sides of the lamp are elevated. The "Avinya" badge is visible below the boot line further down, and the back bumper continues to resemble the front bumper.

The interior of the Tata Avinya deviates from the brand's typical aesthetic and emphasises minimalism. The Avinya's cabin is entirely furnished in tan and light beige hues. The multimedia system lacks a standard screen or even a driver's monitor. A square steering wheel with rounded sides houses a small display screen and touch-based controls. The full-size see-through roof makes the car appear more spacious and large. Traditional ORVMs have been replaced with cameras that display the view on screens next to the A-pillar. The Avinya's cabin will also be constructed from recyclable and eco-friendly materials. For instance, the floor's surface is made of mineral wastes like oyster shells and recycled plastic.
According to Tata Motors, production of the Avinya will begin in 2025. The SUV will be an all-electric vehicle with a wheelbase of 1.3 metres and a length of nearly 4.3 metres, according to the Indian automaker.
