Tata Altroz EV uses the same 30.2 kWh lithium-ion battery (placed under rear seats) with IP-67 certification and an 8-year warranty. The car is powered by a 95-kW electric motor used in the Tata Nexon which can generate the massive power of 74 HP and 170 NM of torque.
Exterior and Interior
The exterior of the Tata Altroz EV is similar to the ICE-powered Altroz. It’s going to get a new grille, redesigned aerodynamics, the absence of a rear exhaust pipe, and more color options.
The interior is also the same as ICE-powered Altroz. The main change we expect is the absence of a mechanical gearbox that will result in more space around the mid control area.
Performance of Tata Altroz EV
|Top Speed||120 kph|
|0-100 kph||12.63 seconds|
|Electric Range||300-330 km|
It’s also expected that the EV would accelerate from 0-100 km/h in just 12.63 seconds and can reach the top speed of 120 km/h. The vehicle range and performance would be better than other same segment Electric cars because of lower weight and increased power. According to Firespeedy, the car would run 300-330 km on a single charge. Because the Altroz EV runs on the same battery as Tata Nexon EV.
The Nexon runs about 312 km on a single charge. And the Altroz weighs approximately 150 kgs less than Nexon. So, obviously, it would run more than Nexon. The battery can be charged to 80% in just an hour by a fast charger. Whereas a normal 230V charger at home can charge the battery in 8 hours.
