TOP 5 best concepts at the New Delhi Motor ShowFebruary 9, 2020
Any car dealership is not without precursors of future models in the form of concept cars. Some of them are copies of future production cars, while others represent only some design elements and the direction of technological development. The Indian auto show in 2020 turned out to be interesting and rich in concepts.
What is a car dealership without several concept cars? There was something to see at the Auto Expo 2020 motor show. Only a few newcomers turned out to be showcars without the opportunity to appear in serial form. Nevertheless, many precursors of production models that were not typical for the local market were presented in India.
5. Tata Sierra EV
The Indian automobile giant Tata is actively developing in the segment of electrified cars. At the Auto Expo 2020, several concepts of electric cars were presented, and one of them turned out to be a crossover with the revived name Sierra. Tata did not disclose any production plans, but the fact that the Sierra e-SUV concept is built on the ALFA platform speaks of a future production version.
It is worth noting that the concept uses a number of stylistic decisions taken from the original Tata Sierra SUV of past years. According to preliminary information, the model will receive a range of about 150 km, an electric motor of up to 100 horsepower, as well as modern equipment of the initial level.
4. Tata HBX
Another interesting concept was the Tata HBX subcompact SUV. The model was presented in the image of a pre-production concept, which indicates the imminent appearance on the market. Apparently, HBX should compete with Suzuki Jimny. The model has a modern design with two-level optics, off-road body kit, black alloy wheels, as well as “evil” rubber.
Unfortunately, the company did not disclose any details of the production version. Release date, cost and configuration are still unknown.
3. Suzuki Futuro-e
Maruti Suzuki on the very first day of the Indian Motor Show introduced its first Futuro-e all-electric crossover concept. This model is a separate line of crossovers. It does not look like existing models with either design or technical stuffing.
The model is a show car, and the production version of the compact electric crossover will differ from the concept. Nevertheless, part of the design decisions will be used for the new model. According to insiders, the future crossover will retain a coupe-like design, will receive four doors and LED optics. Information on technical equipment, cost and release date is not yet available.
2. Skoda Vision IN
The concept of a small crossover Skoda Vision IN caused a real stir at the automobile salon. The model is a harbinger of a new crossover for the local market. Judging by the design, the future novelty will have much in common with the European version of the Skoda Kamiq SUV. However, the local unit adapted the design to local consumers.
The “feature” of the crossover will be a spacious and simple interior, in the decoration of which materials from recycled plastic, including artificial leather, are used. The production version will be equipped with a 1.5-liter turbo engine, capable of developing up to 150 horsepower. The start date of sales has not yet been announced.
1. Haval Concept H
Chinese concern Great Wall is about to launch its own brand Haval in the Indian market. Car deliveries are likely to start from China, but a new local factory can be built later. Among all the presented models, the most interesting was the concept of a small crossover Haval Concept H.
The feature of the concept was the place of the world debut, as well as the strict but modern design of the mid-size crossover for the local market. The model stands out for its style among the entire exhibition. The front part is characterized by a massive radiator grille, visually combined with front optics, wide side air intakes and a high hood.
Apparently, this model will be presented only for the domestic market of India, although later it may appear from other countries.
