Tata Motors showcased three concept cars, two of which are electric utility vehicles. However, the Tata Avinya showcased at the Auto Expo 2023 was actually revealed earlier online. Hence, it was not a surprise. But Tata saved the surprise factor for the Harrier EV, which broke cover at the event. The Tata Harrier EV previews an all-electric iteration of the SUV, which is already available in India in a fossil-fuel-powered guise. The Tata Harrier EV has adopted a significantly different design that makes it highly distinctive compared to the internal combustion engine-powered SUV. The Harrier EV is scheduled to launch in India in 2024.

This Audi e-Tron and Mercedes EQS rivalling electric SUV will be positioned in the D2 segment. It boasts features like three-row seating, solar panels on the roof for additional range without recharging the batteries, a pop-up steering wheel and an ultra-large 27-inch touchscreen display.

Toyota showcased its first-ever pure electric car bZ4X, at the Auto Expo 2023, which looks absolutely cool. This car is also the first from the carmaker's EVs from the bZ series, which spawns seven models, including the new b3ZX that has already been unveiled in China. Based on the Toyota e-TNGA architecture, which is a dedicated platform for electric vehicles, the Toyota bZ4X comes with lots of cuts and creases and appears very sharp and sporty in terms of visual aesthetics. What's more interesting is that the production-spec Toyota bZ4X's styling appears closer to the concept version it displayed earlier. The car gets design elements like connected LED headlamps and taillights, which give it a nice and modern vibe. The body cladding adds muscle to the overall visual appearance. The car gets single and dual-motor configurations with a powerful 71.4 kWh battery pack.
