Tata Motors Unveils Altroz Supermini And H2X Concept

Tata stopped by the 89th Geneva International Motor Show to showcase multiple cars, among them the new Altroz and Altroz EV superminis, but also the H2X Concept.

While the Buzzard SUV, also known as the Harrier, was also in attendance, we’re going to be focusing our efforts on the Altroz and Altroz EV, two so-called premium urban cars with different powertrains, designed on an all-new Agile Light Flexible Advanced (ALFA) architecture.

The ALFA platform has lightweight, modular and flexible characteristics, allowing for the manufacturing of multiple body styles and a choice of different powertrains, including petrol, diesel and even fully electric.

Meet the Altroz

Tata means to reinvent the urban car design with its new Altroz supermini, by putting greater emphasis on bringing connectivity and everyday mobility together. The Indian automaker plans on bringing the Altroz to market in India come mid-2019.

Design-wise, this looks like a reasonably modern car, albeit maybe a little quirky because of those swoosh-shaped front doors. It’s actually more of a design gimmick, as opposed to something practical in nature – it doesn’t actually free up the window line.

Then there’s the multi-level front end design, which also comes off as “different”, or perhaps a little familiar if you’re a fan of certain newer Citroen models.

As for the interior, the gauge cluster seems to be split in half (half digital, half analog). There’s also a freestanding infotainment screen on top of the dashboard, flat-bottom multi-function steering wheel, a push-to-start button, manual gearbox, manual handbrake, electric door mirrors, power windows, air conditioning and gold trim around the air vents.

There’s no official word on any powertrain specifications, but hopefully the automaker will rectify that soon – we’re particularly curious about the EV version.

More of a showstopper

According to Tata, it’s the H2X Concept that’s the most attractive proposition when it comes to their Geneva stand. It’s a sub-compact SUV, with a dynamic and expressive appearance, as well as “future ready connectivity and outstanding interior roominess.”

The H2X is also based on the new ALFA architecture and shows Tata’s future design direction under the IMPACT 2.0 design plan. Its looks are actually based on the H5X Concept, although everything here is more “condensed” and a lot more angular, perhaps even rugged.

    Hmm, such a no Tata looking! Wonder what the price might be for the shown trim? Probably not Nano price tag, but if it is 25-30% on top of that it might be something … good?!?

    That SUV certainly looks like a buzzard indeed!

    I hope people doesn’t get trapped in it.
