The Curvv’s platform works to both ICE and electric motors. This is what you can expect from the fuel-burner version.
Tata Curvv first broke cover as an EV concept in April 2022.
The Curve is built on Gen 2 platform. Gen 2 platform, ICE version comes with diesel and petrol powertrains.
ICE-powered Curvv will sit ahead of the Nexon and will compete in the Hyundai Creta’s category.
The near-production version may be available by the end of 2023.
Prices are anticipated to start lower than 20 lakh (ex-showroom).
Tata Curvv Tata Curvv first debuted in the spring of 2022 as a prototype electric vehicle. Its ICE version is making an appearance at the Auto Expo 2023 which will be on display throughout the exhibition. This version of the Curve will have diesel and petrol powertrains, instead of an electric drivetrain. The car will debut in 2024, as a competitor against those that include the Hyundai Creta Kia Seltos, Volkswagen Taigun, Skoda Kushaq, and MG Astor.
Tata Curvv ICE Design
On the exterior On the outside, on the outside, ICE Curvv is not like the other Tata vehicle that is currently being offered for sale. The design is based on the ‘Less is more’ style The Curve is an elegant, clean design and a wide DRL in the heavily concave front. Although the EV features a non-grille nose however, the ICE model features a sleek upper grille, as well as a larger air dam on the bottom of the bumper’s front.
The LED headlights with triangular shapes are a re-imagining of the headlights split that is seen at the Harrier, Safari and Punch SUVs. Furthermore, the ICE version comes with cool alloy wheels with a split-spoke design instead of the aero-style rims that are found on the Curve.
From the side, from the side, ICE features a coupe-like roofline that slopes downwards at the rear. A prominent window line, a tall stance as well as flared wheel arches massive alloy wheels that have aero inserts show that the SUV’s DNA remains unaltered. In addition, the Curvv features doors that are frameless.
In the rear the Curvv’s tailgate with a notchback has a stylish roof spoiler, as well as the brake lights are LED which is wrapped around the windshield of the rear. It also has a full-width LED taillight as well as numerous vents on the rear bumper to help cool.
Interiors with minimalistic design
Inside the cabin, the Curvv ICE features a neatly designed dashboard that is reminiscent of an idea vehicle. It’s possible that we won’t be able to see this stark minimalism in the production version however, it’s floating touchscreen as well as free-standing driver’s display will be able to filter down to the actual electric vehicle. We do hope that the retro-inspired 2-spoke steering wheel remains.
It has a complete panoramic glass roof to give an airy feeling inside the interior (the production model could have an open-air sunroof instead). The overall cabin atmosphere is enhanced with the blue interior. The presence of buttons for conventional functions and dials for HVAC, among other functions, assures us that Tata will not restrict these functions through the touchscreen.
The Curvv ICE is based on Tata’s Generation 2 platform which can accommodate fully electric, diesel and petrol powertrains.
We can count on the ICE to earn a good security rating by NCAP and will be similarly to the stables it shares with.
We think the production-spec 2024 ICE Tata Curvv will come with the price to be lower than 20 lakh. It will be positioned above it’s cousin the Nexon in the lineup of the automaker. It will compete in the highly competitive compact SUV market upon its introduction in 2024. This Curvv EV will also be available next year, and we’ll be seeing a close-to-production version of both cars by the close of 2023.
