Tata Altroz EV is considered to be the first hatchback electric vehicle (EV) from Tata Motors. It is expected to pack best-in-class premium features for a hatchback, which should help the company garner a larger customer base than the Nexon Prime, Nexon Max and Tigor EV.
The Tata Altroz EV launch in India is long overdue as its first glimpse was shown at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show where a prototype version was presented. Anticipation has been building since then and the car may soon see the light of day. With that being said, here’s a quick look at what we know so far, including the Tata Altroz EV price, features, launch date and more.
The much awaited Altroz EV is expected to arrive later this year. As per rumours, the electric car will be launched in India in November and will have an identical design language to the ICE-variant of the car while the powertrain will be similar to other EVs in the Tata portfolio such as the Nexon EV.
The car was recently spied testing on Indian roads. Its rear looks similar to the TATA Altroz ICE variant, and the missing tailpipe suggests that the car in question is the TATA Altroz EV.

Tata Altroz EV :
Looks like Tata Motors has taken it personally and decided to single-handedly populate the EV atmosphere in India After Nexon EV and Tigor EV, Tata is gearing up with an all-electric version of the new Altroz hatchback. As the name suggests, the Tata Altroz EV is largely based on its fossil-fuel counterpart. The electric hatchback will use the brand’s Ziptron powertrain that uses a permanent magnet AC motor that powers the front wheels through a single-speed gearbox.
Design-wise, there’s little to distinguish the Altroz EV from its non-EV sibling. What it gets is an exclusive teal blue body paint, some blue accents around the hatchback and a redesigned front air-dam. Also, the lack of a tail-pipe gives away its electric heritage. The cabin seems a little roomier thanks to the absence of a mechanical gearbox and gear lever.
The gear-selector dial is in front of the armrest. The center console is divided into two parts and some storage issues are solved by floating cubby space on the dashboard.
