Tata Altroz EV is believed to be the first hatchback electric vehicle (EV) from Tata Motors. It is expected to pack in best-in-class premium features for a hatchback, which will help the company garner more customer base than it already has with Nexon Prime, Nexon Max, and Tigor EV. The Tata Altroz EV launch in India is long overdue as its first-ever glimpse was shown back in 2019 at the Geneva Motor show where a prototype version was presented. Since then the anticipation has been building up and the car may soon see the light of the day. With that being said, here’s a quick look at everything we know so far, including Tata Altroz EV price, features, launch date, and more.
Tata Altroz EV price in India
Since Tata Altroz EV is said to be a premium hatchback electric four-wheeler, the pricing could be on the higher side. The car will boast of cutting-edge technologies, high-capacity batteries and sophisticated internal parts along with various app-based control features. That said, Altroz EV will be positioned above its petrol and diesel counterparts therefore we can expect the EV to come with a starting price of around Rs 10 lakh in most cities. Additionally, the on-road price may be further reduced through various subsidies on electric vehicles provided by central and state governments.

Coming to the battery capacity, the Altroz EV is expected to be powered by a 30.2kWh lithium-ion pack.

It will also feature a fast charging option, which can charge the battery pack to eighty percent in 60 minutes.
The Altroz EV will feature a large-sized 7-inch touch screen display on the front to control various settings of the car and will also act as an entertainment medium to enjoy movies and videos on the go.
