The Tata Megapixel has arrived in the United Kingdom for the first time and the model has been officially presented to the public during the Goodwood Festival of Speed last weekend.
According to the Asian car manufacturer, the Tata Megapixel is a range-extended electric vehicle concept which is able to return a staggering 282 mpg UK and emit just 22 g/km of CO2. The Tata Megapixel has been described as “the result of the progress we have made on the Pixel” by the Tata Motors managing director, Prakash Telang.
The Tata Megapixel is coming with a very small single-cylinder 325cc petrol engine, which, after the “juice” runs out, is providing a total output of just 30 HP and the gasoline unit is allowing the model to achieve a range of “over 599 miles” at a top speed of 68 mph.
Tata Motors has fitted the Megapixel with double sliding doors and the B-pillars are absent, just like Ford did with its new B-Max MPV, providing an easier access to the cabin. The vehicle’s most important features are being controlled with a generous touch screen display and the driver can install a smartphone too. The Tata Megapixel has been brought to the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year too.
