Geneva: Tata Megapixel image

Tata Motors presented at the Geneva Motor Show the Tata Megapixel, a new four-seater, city-smart global range extended electric vehicle concept.

“The Tata Megapixel, developed by our design centers in India, the UK and Italy, is our idea of a city car for discerning motorists in any megacity of the world. It is a result of the progress we have made on the Tata Pixel, displayed last year, and also denotes the company’s future design direction,” declared Prakash Telang, managing director, India operations, Tata Motors.

The model features a lithium ion phosphate battery and an on-board petrol engine generator for recharging on the move, offering a range of up to 900km, with a single tank of fuel, path-breaking CO2 emission of just 22gm/km and fuel economy of 100km/liter. The at-home charging system is an innovative induction charging system. The car has simply to be parked over the induction pad for charging to begin.

Tata Megapixel has also state-of-the-art amenities such as the console docking point which can connect a smart phone with the car, the built-in large touchscreen HMI, at the centre of the instrument panel, which becomes a common access point for the repertoire of smart devices and for controlling the functions of the car, such as temperature, ventilation, driving modes and performance.
