Auto Expo 2023: Tata Harrier EV Concept Revealed; Previews Production SUV
Tata Motors has revealed an all-electric derivative of the Harrier at the Auto Expo 2023 as a production intended concept. The concept combines Tata’s Omega Arc architecture with the company’s Gen 2 EV architecture to offer an all-wheel drive electric SUV.
In terms of design the Harrier EV gets a revised front fascia with a design seemingly inspired by the Curvv concept. The high set LED daytime running lamps remain while the grille is now closed off with a body-coloured panel. Lower down, the bumper is redesigned with triangular vents on the sides housing the main headlamps while the prominent air-dam is housed in the centre. The revised front fascia gives the Harrier EV a sleeker look overall.

The redesigned rear gets new tail-lamps connected by a light bar, as well as a redesigned bumper. The concept also came equipped with a panoramic sunroof. A brief glimpse of the inteirro revealed a redesigned centre console with a large free-standing touchscreen.
