Tata showed electric car with moss in the cabinFebruary 6, 2020
The novelty was called Sierra – the same name was used for an SUV, produced from 1991 to 2000
The Indian company Tata Motors presented at the motor show in New Delhi a prototype of the future production crossover, called Sierra. The concept has an electric power plant, an unusual configuration of the seats and interior trim made of natural materials, including wood and real moss.
The basis of the Tata Sierra EV lay the modular platform Tata ALFA, which is already used for the Altroz hatchback. However, in the case of the concept, a special configuration of this platform was used, intended for electric vehicles. Showcar is not only a harbinger of the future production model but also dismantles the brand’s new design concept called Impact 2.0. Its characteristic feature is smooth lines, simple shapes and attention to detail.
Veste with the name inherited from the original Sierra, produced from 1991 to 2000, the Shawkar inherited an unusual seat configuration: the rear sofa is installed on the port side of the car. At the same time, the electric car has four doors (including the boot), one of which moves to the side.
The salon is decorated in a minimalist style and with an emphasis on “proximity to nature”, as evidenced by the extensive use of natural materials. From modern Sierra EV systems, only a digital dashboard got – Tata explained this by saying that the car calls for a “digital detox” or, in other words, the rejection of gadgets. Therefore, it does not even have a multimedia system.
According to preliminary data, the “commodity” Tata Sierra will appear by 2023, and the model will receive not only an electric modification but also versions with internal combustion engines.
