The Concept Curvv will be Tata Motors’ first-ever coupe SUV
Tata Motors is taking a strong approach to the EV segment and the latest in that line is the Concept Curvv. While still a concept, Tata has confirmed that it will be launched in EV guise first, followed by its ICE counterparts. Of course, the most striking bit about the Concept Curvv is its design so let’s get right to that.
In terms of its silhouette, the coupe SUV stance is very evident with the roof aggressively sloping down at the rear. It also has strong, angular lines all over which gives it quite a butch look. The front-end gets a lightbar which curves upwards at its outer edges to flow into the bonnet. The rear gets a similar lightbar, though it angles downward at its outer edges.
Overall, the Concept Curvv looks cool and future Tata EVs will also be inspired by Concept Curvv’s design language. Inside too, the Concept Curvv is a big departure from current Tata models. The layout is rather cluter-free with a floating infotainment system, a digital instrument cluster, touch sensitive HVAC controls and a new-gen steering wheel with touch sensitive controls.
In terms of the powertrains, the Concept Curvv will arrive as an EV first. There aren’t any specifics revealed about the motor, but the Concept Curvv is said to have a range of 400-500km, enabled by a second-gen EV architecture which will also help with faster charging rates and unlock variable regen modes. Expect the Concept Curvv to feature a single-motor setup, but Tata has said that the platform is capable of dual-motor all-wheel-drive setups.
On the ICE side of things, Tata has confirmed that a hybrid will not be part of the range and there will most likely be both petrol and diesel engine options with both automatic and manual gearbox options.
The Concept Curvv is set to debut in the next two years, with Tata Motors doubling-down to ramp up the speed of development and bring the Concept Curvv to production at the earliest. In terms of where it will sit in the range, Tata has confirmed that it is larger than the Nexon and will sit above the Nexon EV in the lineup, though expect it to be smaller than the Harrier.
