Tata Motors is possibly a vehicle manufacturer you haven’t heard of before, and we don’t blame you! The Indian brand is currently not available in the UK market, but they’re huge throughout Asia. The company currently produces cars, trucks, buses, construction equipment and more. However, they could be about to join the EV market with the brilliantly named, Tata EVision Electric.
While Tata Motors themselves haven’t ventured into the UK, some of their sub brands certainly have. You’ll probably be more familiar with the manufacturers Jaguar and Land Rover? Well, in 2008 they were bought by Tata Motors.
Tata Motors has also partnered up with other European manufacturers, such as Fiat and Hyundai. But, now they’re venturing into the EV world with their first pure electric car. The Tata EVision Electric concept car initially debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in 2018.
What’s all the fuss about?
The vehicle itself is underpinned by the brand’s new modular platform, OMEGA ARC, which it shares with the upcoming Tata Harrier. Like famous USA brand Tesla, the Tata EVision Electric has a dual-motor setup and will support both AC and fast DC charging.
A lot of the specifications are still to be released, but Tata are speculating that the EVision Electric will have a range of 400km, which equates to roughly 248 miles. Likewise, the manufacturers are floating a top speed of 124mph and acceleration from 0-62mph in seven seconds.
The concept car is also said to feature the latest technology, including predictive energy management systems, which focus on maximising the vehicle’s range. There’s also linked technologies such as cloud computing, analytics and geographic mapping.
Unfortunately, that’s all we know about the Tata EVision Electric as it is just a concept car for the meantime. There isn’t a set production date, if that were to happen. Would you like to drive the Tata EVision Electric?
Electrifying EVs at EVision
While the Tata EVision Electric may, or may not, be coming to the UK, we still have plenty of electric vehicles on offer! Here at EVision Electric Vehicles, we’re constantly upgrading our all-electric fleet to offer the latest EV models!
We’ve recently had some exciting deliveries…
Hyundai Ioniq 5
Our newest arrival is the fantastic Hyundai Ioniq 5! As a sister car to the Kia EV6, we’re extremely excited to see how the Ioniq 5 compares.
At a first glance, the Ioniq 5 looks amazing. It’s very futuristic and eye-catching which is brilliant for a family hatchback. Competing against the likes of the Jaguar I-Pace, Audi Q4 e-tron and Volkswagen ID.4, the Ioniq 5 certainly has some work to do.
We’ll let you decide whether you like the style of the Ioniq 5, but it’s pixelated lighting and crisp lines are very different from all its rivals. We opted for two different models of the Ioniq 5. The first being the all-wheel drive model, which gives drivers approximately 287 miles of range.
This is the quickest Ioniq 5 model, with acceleration from 0-62mph in just 5.2 seconds. That matches the Kia EV6 GT-Line S AWD model too. We also have the rear-wheel drive model of the Hyundai Ioniq 5, which has a slightly larger range of 301 miles. However, acceleration is slightly slower with 0-62mph taking 7.4 seconds.
Both EVision models have a maximum speed of 115mph and take roughly 17 minutes to reach 80% charge when using a 350kW charge point. You can hire a Hyundai Ioniq 5 from just £40.04 per day!
Tesla Model Y
Next up is the highly anticipated Tesla Model Y. This EV has been on everyone’s mind since it’s first launch in the US two years ago. The Model Y was made available for UK orders in Autumn of 2021, with deliveries starting in the first couple of months of 2022.
At EVision we have some of the Model Y Long Range all-wheel drive models, which have a maximum range of 331 miles. While the Tesla Model Y isn’t quite as speedy as the Tesla Model S, it can still reach 62mph in 5 seconds (which is the same as the Tesla Model X).
The design of the Model Y is based on Tesla’s very popular Model 3, except it’s slightly bigger. This bigger size, unsurprisingly, means extra space. Initially, the Model Y was shown as a seven-seater directly rivalling Mercedes’ EQB model. However, it’s only being sold as a fiver-seat for the time being.
Like every other Tesla, the Model Y has a giant infotainment screen dominating the dashboard. Unlike the other Tesla Model S and X, the screen in the Model Y is actually landscape, rather than portrait. Within this, you can control pretty much all of the vehicle’s functions.
You can hire a Tesla Model Y from just £40.04 per day!
Kia Soul EV
Kia have given their fan-favourite Soul model an electrifying update! After success with their first two electric vehicles, the e-Niro and the EV6, the Soul EV had some big shoes to fill. The brand has also made the huge step to discontinue petrol or diesel versions of the Soul. Now, it’s only available as an all-electric model.
One thing that hasn’t changed is the classic shape of the Soul. We’re sure this is like marmite. You either love it or you hate it! Considering how popular the Kia Soul has been throughout the years, we imagine that most people love it!
There’s a couple of different drivetrains available with the Kia Soul EV, but at EVision we have the two-wheel drive model. This model has a range of 280 miles and can reach 62mph in just 7.6 seconds. That’s really not a bad stat, considering the rear-wheel drive Ioniq 5 is only 0.2 seconds quicker.
Hire a Kia Soul EV from EVision today and experience a great car with an electric twist.
As we said, we’re always looking for ways to improve our electric fleet and we have some absolutely amazing EVs coming this year! Including;
