The electric variant of Tata Curvv will be launched before the traditional internal combustion engine (ICE) version later this year. Tata Motors recently unveiled the third iteration of the Curvv concept. Initially introduced in April 2022, the second version was showcased at the 2023 Auto Expo, showcasing a more refined evolution of the design. The production-ready model was unveiled alongside other Tata models at the Bharat Mobility Global Expo 2024 in New Delhi.
The electric midsize SUV coupe is set to hit the market in the second quarter of this fiscal year (between July and September 2024), with the ICE version following within three to four months of its launch. The ICE Curvv, showcased at the expo, is powered by a diesel engine.
At the expo, the Curvv displayed the latest design elements, reminiscent of the updated Nexon, Harrier, and Safari models. Its front design features a sweeping bonnet, a horizontal LED light bar, a piano black finished grille with new inserts, and the Tata logo.
Distinctive features of the Curvv include vertically positioned LED headlamps with black surrounds, a broad hexagonal grille for the bumper air intake, and a faux skid plate. Glossy black muscular wheel arch surrounds, sleek door handles, large-sized wheels with a sporty design, SUV coupe roofline, and aggressive side door trims contribute to its aesthetic appeal.
In terms of performance, the ICE Curvv will be equipped with a 1.5L turbo diesel engine borrowed from the Nexon, delivering 115 PS and 260 Nm. Additionally, a new 1.2L DI turbo petrol unit will produce 125 PS and 225 Nm. Both manual and automatic transmissions will be available, with the possibility of a CNG variant. The Tata Curvv EV is positioned above the Nexon EV in the lineup and is expected to offer two battery configurations. Top-spec variants are projected to have a claimed driving range of over 500 km on a single charge, supporting DC fast charging and V2L capabilities.
