Tata H5X Concept Has Land Rover Roots And An Indian Passport

Tata’s latest concept cars, the H5X crossover and EVision compact sedan, are a far cry from its most famous vehicle, the ultra low-budget Nano.

However, they represent the Indian firm’s future, and since it’s tied to Jaguar Land Rover as their parent company, both of them have a lot in common with the Discovery Sport, Range Rover Evoque and Jaguar E-Pace.

That’s because they share a version of their platform called Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced Architecture (OMEGA). Powering the H5X concept is a diesel engine, but despite being originally presented at the New Delhi Auto Expo last month and now at the Geneva Motor Show, nothing else is known about it.

The H5X has a quite funky styling with squared-off wheel arches, bloated fenders, slim lighting units, skid plates, and some plastic cladding that provide the must-have off-road look. Still, it’s a bit longer, wider and taller than the Range Rover Evoque, and has a longer wheelbase, too, than the British SUVs on which it’s based.

Tata didn’t say whether any of its two show cars actually previews a future production model. If they do, we guess the styling will have to be toned down a lot, especially in the H5X, but they might just be the ticket Tata needs to make it outside its home market, as the Nano is most definitely not a product they’d like to launch in, say, Europe or China.
