Tata Harrier EV First Look Review - Tata's Big 5 Seater Heads Down The EV Path

Tata Motors revealed the all-new Harrier EV at Auto Expo 2023. The Tata Harrier EV will hit our streets next year and is expected to offer a range of up to 500km on a single charge.

In this first look review of the Tata Harrier EV, we take a look at the design & features of the upcoming vehicle revealed at Auto Expo 2023 and review what it implies for the future of the SUV.

Tata Harrier EV Design & Features

The Tata Harrier EV sports quite a few noticeable design highlights that set it apart from its ICE sibling currently on sale. The Tata Harrier EV features updated looks that are expected to make it onto the production-spec EV when it hits the streets.

The Tata Harrier EV's front end is quite different from its dino-burning sibling. The grille is mostly blanked off which plays host to the Tata badge. The LED daytime running lights now form a full-width lightbar.

The actual headlights of the new Harrier EV are found on the new bumper of the electric SUV. The headlights are found in a new vertical stack along with the other lights. The new bumper also plays host to a perforated lower section that sports vertical slats as well as a section that will hold the vehicle's ADAS sensor. Underneath this sits the faux skid plate.

The biggest change on the sides of the Harrier EV compared to its ICE sibling come in the form of the new wheels which feature what appear to be aerodynamic elements. Also seen is a .EV badge on the doors and touchpoints that open said doors instead of the door handle.

The rear section of the electric SUV sports a Harrier EV badge on the lower section of the bumper. However, the biggest change comes in the form of the lightbar style taillights with the Tata badge immediately underneath.

Other features include the integrated spoiler and the vertical sections on either edge of the bumper that host some more lights and the faux skid plate that juts out from underneath the front bumper.

The interiors seem mostly unchanged, though we do expect Tata to fit the Harrier EV with its own special interior buttons and other items including the ones for the regen and driving modes the electric SUV will surely come with.

Tata Harrier EV Powertrain

Tata has remained quite mum about the exact details of the Harrier EV's powertrain though there the firm has confirmed that the electric SUV will feature 4x4 capabilities. This means that the Harrier EV will feature 2 electric motors (one on each axle) and since this is a Tata GEN 2 EV, a range of up to 500km on a single charge.

Thoughts About The Tata Harrier EV

The Tata Harrier EV shows us the direction this SUV is heading in. The electric SUV will hit our roads next year and we expect it to carry quite a premium over its ICE siblings.

Speaking of the ICE versions of the Harrier, the changes at least in terms of design are also expected to make their way onto the facelifted version of the SUV that is expected to arrive later this year. The ICE Harrier is also expected to sport Tata's new 1.5-litre turbo petrol engine alongside the Stellantis-sourced diesel.
