At a time when fuel protection is becoming essential across the world, India's Tata Motorsis aiming to make a car, Tata Megapixel that can deliver up to 100 kilometers from a litre of fuel by using a unique combination of technology.
The company, which surprised the world with 'Rs one lakh car' Nano, on Tuesday unveiled the concept vehicle which is a four-seater global range extensive electric vehicle (REEV) meant for city driving.
The new improvement from the house of Tatas is likely to be commercially launched in around three years from now.
"Realistically such products take at least 3 years to expand. There are lots of electric technologies to be urbanized, besides many other things," Tata Group Chairman Ratan Tata said after unveiling the vehicle at the Geneva Motor Show.
The vehicle combines a lithium ion phosphate battery and an on-board petrol engine producer for recharging on the move. According to the company, Tata Megapixel offers a range of up to 900 km (with a single tank of fuel) and fuel wealth of 100 km/litre (under battery only power).
It also said the car will have CO2 release of "just 22 gm/km".
Last year at the 81st Geneva Motor Show Tata Motors had unveiled Tata Pixel, a city car notion for Europe. Pixel is yet to be commercially launched.
Speaking during the unveiling of Megapixel, Tata Motors organization Director - India Operations Prakash M Telang said: "The Tata Megapixel, urbanized by our design centres in India, the UK and Italy, is our idea of a city car for discriminating motorists in any megacity of the world. It is a result of the growth we have made on the Tata Pixel, displayed last year, and also denotes the company?s future design direction."
