2019 Geneva Motor show: Tata Motors to debut production-spec Tata 45X hatchback
Alongside news that the company will showcase an all new EV hatchback, and develop a future mobility eco-system around it, Tata Motors will also debut the production version of the Tata 45X hatchback at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The company has released a new video to build interest in the new car as well. The car is expected to launch by the festive season.
The production spec 45X has been spotted testing on numerous occasions. The premium hatchback seems to carry forward a lot of the styling cues from the concept car, although with the sharp lines toned down to a large extent. The design is still edgier than what we have seen so far from Tata Motors. The large headlamps which protrude and sit flush with the grille, heavily raked C pillar and indented tailgate are some notable design cues. Like we've seen on the Harrier SUV, the front also seems to get a two-part lighting element with the high-mounted fog lamps. The tail lights also seem to be of slim and sweeping, two-part design like on the new SUV.
The interior layout mimics that of the Harrier SUV to an extent, but toned down for this smaller, more afordable application. There is the floating touchscreen with various control placed below it. The low mounted air vents also make an appearance here. The steering wheel seems to the newer unit from the Harrier and the instrument binnacle too is of a similar shape as that of the Harrier.
The Tata 45X is based on the Advanced Modular Platform (AMP), now named Alpha and features the brand's Impact 2.0 design philosophy. The 45X-based premium hatchback will compete with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Honda Jazz, and the Hyundai i20.
