Jaguar-Land Rover may have skipped the Detroit Motorshow because of their huge presence at our very own 2012 Delhi Auto Expo. But parent company Tata Motors is definitely heading there in full swing. The centerpiece at the Tata Stall in Detroit will be the Tata eMO concept (short for Electric Mobility).
Inspired by the Pixel (which is like a posh Nano), the eMO concept can travel a 100-mile range on full charge with a top speed of 65 miles per hour.The suicide doors allow the front and rear passenger to get in easily so there is no need for 4 doors which saves weight. There is no hatch to put your luggage thus saving weight even further.
Warren Harris, Tata Technologies President and Global COO, said
" The eMO project symbolizes the coming of age of Indian automotive engineering."
The Tata eMO will cost USD 20,000 if it goes in production which it never will. According to Tata Motors, the eMO will remain concept. However, the design study may ‘inspire’ the future of Nano or Pixel.
