Geneva motor Show
Sorry if this has been posted before. I searched but found nothing.
Tata Motors keeps bringing out these concept vehicles in such events. Don't see any of those concepts going into production so far.
well one should understand the meaning of concept car
Concept car - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A concept vehicle or show vehicle is a car made to showcase new styling and or new technology. They are often shown at motor shows to gauge customer reaction to new and radical designs which may or may not have a chance of being produced.
It's a nice improvement over the Pixel shown last year. Neat design.
I think only one have entered production..
Tata Xover concept
Production version, TATA Aria
That's nice! BTW the concept head lamps look way too cooler!
Tata Motors eyes 100 kmpl with Megapixel after cheapest car Nano - Economic Times
GENEVA: At a time when fuel conservation is becoming imperative across the world, Tata Motors is aiming to make a car, Tata Megapixel that can deliver up to 100 kilometres from a litre of fuel by using a unique combination of technology.
The company, which surprised the world with 'Rs one lakh car' Nano, today unveiled the concept vehicle which is a four -seater global range extended electric vehicle (REEV) meant for city driving. The new innovation from the house of Tatas is likely to be commercially launched in around three years from now.
"Realistically such products take at least 3 years to develop. There are lots of electric technology to be developed, besides many other things," Tata Group Chairman Ratan Tata said after unveiling the vehicle here at the Geneva Motor Show.
The vehicle combines a lithium ion phosphate battery and an on-board petrol engine generator for recharging on the move. According to the company, Tata Megapixel offers a range of up to 900 km (with a single tank of fuel) and fuel economy of 100 km/litre (under battery only power).
It also said the car will have CO2 emission of "just 22 gm/km". Last year at the 81st Geneva Motor Show Tata Motors had unveiled Tata Pixel, a city car concept for Europe. Pixel is yet to be commercially launched.
Speaking during the unveiling of Megapixel, Tata Motors Managing Director - India Operations Prakash M Telang said: "The Tata Megapixel, developed by our design centres in India, the UK and Italy, is our idea of a city car for discerning motorists in any megacity of the world.
"It is a result of the progress we have made on the Tata Pixel, displayed last year, and also denotes the company's future design direction."
Among other features, the Megapixel's electric drive has four independent electric motors, one at each wheel. To make parking easier, the electric hub motors drive the wheels in opposite directions, while the front wheels are turned at an acute angle, enabling a 2.8 metre turning radius.
It also has an easy charging feature with the at-home charging system with an induction system. The car has simply to be parked over the induction pad for charging to begin.
100 kmpl ? If possible that will sell like hot cakes in india and will rub all the failure of nano by record sales.
