Tata Motors recently debuted the Sierra concept's 4-door variant at the 16th edition of the Auto Expo held in Greater Noida from January 13 to January 18. According to the carmaker, the brand-new Sierra will launch in India in 2025. Tata Motors also confirmed that its two more upcoming models, the Harrier EV and the Curvv SUV Coupe are slated for a launch next year. According to Tata Motors, the Sierra's production version will be nearly identical to the concept car. It will take up the spot above the Curvv SUV Coupe and have a length of 4.3 to 4.4 metres. The new Tata Sierra will come standard with a five-seater configuration. The top-spec model, on the other hand, will come in a four-seater lounge version. The lounge model will have two captain seats that can be reclined and pulled back/forward.
The SUV has a long LED strip up front that spans its width horizontally. The sleek front fascia lacks any noticeable grilles because the vehicle's electric drivetrain does not require additional cooling. A sizable black bumper, a large silver skid plate, and a large Tata insignia are all present. Like the front, the SUV's rear has an all-LED strip and a strong upright stance. The simple rear bumper is covered by the same black side panelling. The car also gets a set of distinctive alloy wheels, as well as the original model's enormous glasshouse and blacked-out C and D pillars. The sides also have substantial black panelling. Besides this, it has a sizable silver skid plate on the back, implying that it might be a potent off-road vehicle.
Ambient mood lighting, stylish air vents, a free-standing touchscreen infotainment system, a steering wheel with buttons on the bottom, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, a digital driver display, an electric sunroof, and an electrically adjustable driver seat are all likely features of the production version. Tata Motors is expected to include numerous USB ports, a centre armrest with cup holders, and an ottoman feature for the backseat passengers. Additional ADAS (advanced driver assistance system) features for the SUV include blind spot monitoring, autonomous emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control.
The Gen 2 platform, also known as the SIGMA hybrid architecture, will serve as the foundation for the design and development of the new Tata Sierra SUV. Basically, this is the ALFA modular platform, which supports the Altroz & the Punch, but has been greatly modified. There will be ICE and electric powertrain options for the SUV.
The engine is anticipated to be a new 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with 170bhp of maximum power and 285Nm of peak torque. It will come standard with a 6-speed manual transmission. An automatic dual-clutch transmission (DCT) is another option. The 60kWh battery pack and front-axle mounted electric motor will probably be included in the Tata Sierra electric version. Two electric motors mounted on the front and rear axles of the Sierra EV may also be equipped with AWD. On a single charge, it should have a range of approximately 500 kilometres.
