All Tata EV Platforms: Gen1, Gen2, Gen3

Tata is very aggressive with its EV strategy, and with their recent futuristic electric mobility concepts like Curvv and Avinya, they seem to have a long plan to dominate this space for years to come.

One thing that Tata emphasizes a lot is the platform on which it will build its vehicles, and how Tata EV lineup will have a dedicated platform that enhances its overall capabilities and performance. What exactly are these platforms? And how exactly do they contribute in making a better EV? This article will clear all that!

Tata has 3 EV platforms: Gen1, Gen2, and Gen3. 

Tata Gen1 EV Platform

The Gen1 EV platform which is currently being used for existing Tata EVs like Tigor EV and Nexon EV MAX is essentially an electric by-product of its current ICE architecture. In this, the motor is housed where the engine would be normally and the battery pack is placed on the bottom of the floor. 

EVs being built on this platform are the same in terms of space as their ICE counterparts and can hold a smaller battery pack. It doesn’t include EV perks like a front trunk and offers a range of around 250-450 km.

This architecture is an evolutionary upgrade over the Gen1 platform. It is said to be built for both EVs and ICE vehicles but focused more on EV compatibility. This new EV podium is quite advanced, flexible, and capable of offering multi-powertrain options.

It is said to have a bigger footprint, accommodate a larger powertrain and battery pack for increased range & power, supports AC and DC fast charging, and possess vehicle-to-load (V2L) and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) charging capability. The estimated range for the Gen2 platform is said to be around 400-500 Km. The first car based on the Gen2 platform will be the Tata Curvv SUV coupe that is slated to arrive by 2024.
