Tata Curvv is another sporty and exciting electric concept car that broke cover earlier in 2022. The car comes with a dynamic and modern SYV typology that combines the sportiness of an SUV and the elegance of a coupe. Tata Motors claims this EV concept carries a perfect balance between elegance, performance and practicality. It features a muscular and strong front and rear profile and slim LED lights at the front and rear. The coupe-like roofline adds premiumness to the SUV, while the flared fenders, wheel arch cladding and lower sill, and raised ride height, give it a sense of toughness and durability. It gets a high-gloss black finish adding a premium touch.
Mahindra Born Electric SUVs
Mahindra gave us a hint of its electrification strategy by showcasing an EV offensive earlier this year. The homegrown SUV specialist revealed five different electric SUV concepts, namely XUV.e8, XUV.e9, BE.05, BE.07, and BE.09. These electric SUV concepts are distinctive from each other and come loaded with a host of advanced technologies. Mahindra claims that these electric SUV concepts will enter production in the near future and play a key role in the automaker's electrification strategy. These electric SUVs are underpinned by the automaker's newly developed INGLO architecture, which has been specially designed for electric vehicles. To be offered under the ‘XUV’ and ‘BE’ sub-brands, Mahindra claims to roll out these five electric SUVs in the market starting from 2024 up to 2026.
