Tata had shared a glimpse of the EV previously which hinted at several details such as blue paint theme which is a signature colour present on both the existing Tata EVs - Tata Nexon EV and Tata Tigor EV. The company has also teased the car's front end kitted with LED light bar stretching across the car's hood and blending into the ORVMs.

Similar to the design language found on the company's existing SUVs, the teaser also showed new triangular-shaped LED headlamps positioned towards the lower bumper. Over the side, there are modern looking grey coloured machine cut alloys and at the rear sits an EV badging and a Tata Motors logo.
While there is no official word on it, rumors suggest that it could be a more powerful variant of the Nexon EV. The company may update the Nexon EV with a 6.6 kW AC charger, and a larger battery pack than the existing model's 30.2 kWh lithium-ion battery pack with Ziptron technology. While currently the model comes with a full range of 312 km, the upcoming SUV could likely come with a further extended range.
More details about the upcoming Tata's electric SUV will be revealed soon.
