Tata Curvv concept unveiled
The Tata Curvv concept – an electric midsize SUV coupe that will sit above the Nexon EV in Tata’s lineup – has just been unveiled.
In terms of design, the new Curvv concept shows Tata’s new ‘Digital’ design language, which will be applied to the rest of the company’s SUV lineup in the future.
With a full length LED light bar, a cleanly sculpted bumper, and triangular housings for the headlights, the Curvv concept offers a striking and simple design from the front.
The coupe’s sloping roofline smoothly blends into the Curvv‘s notchback-styled trunk, as well as a powerful shoulder line, squared-off wheel arches, and body cladding that enhance the SUV’s toughness, are visible in profile.
Various design aspects from the front end, including the full-width light bar tail-light, an angular bumper, and triangular air vents, have been replicated at the back.
Tata’s Generation 2 EV architecture will also be used in the Curvv concept, which is designed to support a variety of body forms and powertrain options. It will be able to accommodate a dual motor setup, allowing it to be equipped with an all-wheel drive system.

The Gen 2 design is based on previous Tata platforms, but it has been tweaked to accommodate bigger batteries and more powerful engine options.
Tata will not provide a hybrid version of the Curvv; instead, it will be released as an electric vehicle (EV), with an ICE version to come later. In addition, the production-spec car is projected to have a verified range of 400-500 kilometres.
Tata Curvv concept’s interior has a clean and simple design across the cabin. The dashboard is sculpted, with a fabric material on top, an LED light strip running the length of the cabin, and a black, angular piece at the bottom.
The two free-standing digital screens – one for the entertainment system and one for the instrument cluster – as well as the new two-spoke steering wheel design are some of the major design elements on the dashboard.
There is a gap between the temperature control switches and the space that holds the rotary gear selector and a centre armrest in the floating centre console configuration.
Also, Tata Motors is preparing to launch new long-range variants of the Nexon EV and Tigor EV in the coming weeks, both of which will have a bigger battery.
Tata Curvv India launch date
While the production-spec SUV’s name has yet to be selected, it is expected to arrive in our market within the next two years, i.e., by 2024.
