At Geneva, new electrics, but don't forget the horsepower

Tata Motors did not reveal the details of the electric motor that is expected to power the E Vision Sedan Concept. Similarly, there is silver trim on the lower edge of the bumpers and along the door sills and window line.

As at any motor show worth its salt, supercars and hypercars are some of the most anticipated on display, including the Ferrari 488 Pista, Zenvo TSR-S (which produces nearly 1,200hp), Lamborghini Huracán Performante Spyder, Bugatti Chiron Sport and UAE-based W Motors' Fenyr SuperSport.

There's a liberal dose of aluminium at the base of the rear bumper too but the defining design element has to be the recessed section for the high-set tail-lights. Upholstered in wood and leather, the concept sure does look premium. Besides the regular instrument cluster, there's also an additional one on top of the dashboard, which pops out as and when needed. This one will slot between the more traditional Q5 and Q7 models, and will go up against Tesla's Model X and the Jaguar I-Pace in the emerging premium electric SUV market. If I take the Alfa and Omega architecture, with the conversion from internal combustion engine (ICE) to an electric version, we could actually change the internal packaging completely. Instead, there is a retractable central infotainment screen. The dashboard contains two hidden displays that pop out only when required. The concept sedan has a coupe-like roofline that features a thick C-pillar. Further, Tata claims that the rear seat will be fully adjustable as well.

Trump may visit Israel for US Embassy opening

Built on a modified OMEGA (Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced) EV architecture, the "E-Vision Sedan Concept" is capable of attaining a top speed of 200 km/hr.

The concept packed a 96 kWh battery, contributing to an all-electric range of over 500 km on a single charge.

"We are committed to the mission of electric mobility and are working to build sustainable future", Tata Motors CEO and Managing Director Guenter Butschek said at the world premiere of the model here. The auto also features advanced driver assist systems (ADAS) and a predictive energy management system. It comes with connected technologies such as cloud computing, analytics and geospatial mapping.
