2018 Tata H5X Concept
Tata Motors might not be a big name in Europe and the U.S., but it one of the most important carmakers in Asia. Founded in 1945, Tata is now selling a wide range of cars and commercial vehicles, but it’s better known for owning Jaguar Land Rover, which it purchased from Ford in 2008. The Indian company is now trying to expand in markets outside Asia, and it’s joining the bigger, global auto shows with new concept cars. One such vehicle is the H5X, which was launched at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show as a preview for an upcoming crossover.
Tata says that the H5X "provides a glimpse of the future generation of Tata Motors SUV’s in terms of design, technology, and sheer capabilities" and that it sports the brand’s upcoming design language, called the Impact 2.0. It’s also the first vehicle based the new Optimal Modular Efficient Global Advanced Architecture, which developed in collaboration with Jaguar Land Rover. Local media says that the production version will be aimed at crossovers like the Jeep Compass and the Mahindra XUV500 in India. But needless to say, the H5X will probably hit global markets as Tata’s first truly contemporary crossover sometime in 2019.

2018 Tata E-Vision Concept
Tata Motors isn’t very well known outside of its own market, but if it manages to turn out production models from its most recent concepts, it could find itself in the limelight. The 45X Coupe and H5X Concepts weren’t bad, but it’s almost like we’re watching the brand grow a little bit at a time, and you’ll think the same thing once you take a good look at the Tata E-Vision – an electric concept that has the looks to put some serious hurt on some of the big boys, if Tata can ever actually bring it to the market.
Tata H5X Concept Previews Land Rover-based SUV in Geneva
With so many hot supercars and concepts on the 2018 Geneva Motor Show floor, it’s easy to ignore the more mundane automobiles or vehicles from lesser known automakers. But, if you join this year’s event, make sure you stop by the Tata Motors booth because the Indian carmaker has three interesting concepts on display. One of them is the H5X, a brand-new crossover concept that will inspire Tata’s upcoming people haulers.
The Tata E-Vision Concept Previews a Production Model that Will Eat the BMW 3 Series and Audi A4 for Breakfast
Established more than 70 years ago, Tata Motors is a big name in India, but didn’t make a big impact on the global market until it acquired Jaguar Land Rover from Ford Motor Company back in 2008. The company actually managed to revive both the Jaguar and Land Rover brand and is now looking to join big markets outside Asia with products wearing the "Tata" badge. This is why it brought three different vehicles at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, one of which is the E-Vision.
The 45X Proves that Tata Could Take On BMW, Audi, and even Porsche in the Future
A year after turning a lot of heads with the Racemo two-seater sports car concept, Indian automaker Tata is back at the Geneva Motor Show with three new concepts. One of these concepts is called the 45X, a premium-looking hatchback that could pave the way for Tata’s future in the segment. The 45X was joined in Geneva by the H5X SUV and the E-Vision all-electric sedan.
2018 Tata 45X Sedan
Tata Motors, a prominent Indian automaker and parent company to Jaguar Land Rover, is set to debut a sedan concept based on its 45X Hatchback Concept launched at India’s 2018 Auto Expo. The new model will supposedly be called the 45X Sedan. Its debut will happen at the 2018 Geneva International Motor Show, which kicks off March 6.
The 45X Sedan will share the same underpinnings as the 45X Hatchback – Tata’s futuristic AMP platform. The architecture is designed to accommodate both left- and right-hand driving position, along with complying with future crash testing regulations.
Tata is expected to release production versions of both the 45X Hatchback and Sedan, with both targeting the premium side of their respective markets. The hatch is due first with an expected on-sale date of 2019 in India. Tata will likely announce its plans for the 45X Sedan at the Geneva show.

Tamo Racemo Promises Lots Of Fun In A Small Package
There’s certainly no shortage of sports cars at the Geneva International Motor Show this year, with everything from affordable entry-level roadsters, to exotic top-dollar hyperspace mobiles on the list of debuts. Slotting in there somewhere is this – the Tamo Racemo, the latest product from Indian automaker Tata Motors. Tata is launching a new sub-brand called Tamo, and the Racemo is its first creation.
Described as “India’s first digitally native, connected, ‘phygital’ experience,” the mid-engine, two-door sports coupe seats two passengers and gets loads of performance cues inside and out. And if you’re asking yourself what “phygital” is supposed to be, the best way to describe it is that it offers a combination of features from both the physical and digital realms.
Basically, you could call this thing India’s first connected car. It comes replete with a ton of techy features, and it’ll be available for download via the Forza Horizon 3 gaming platform.
Not only that, but Tamo is offering a high-performance competition version called the Racemo+, and it’s likely Tamo will offer more inspired creations like this in the near future.
Production for the Racemo will be limited at 250 units, none of which are likely to make it stateside. For now, read on for further specs on the Tamo Racemo.

On any other motor show, their cute little concept vehicle called the ’Pixel’ would have gathered its fair share of attention. Unfortunately, it’s the Geneva Motor Show, where every automaker and their mother are all looking to put their best feet forward in all their attempts to showcase their latest rides.
So the Pixel has gone on largely unnoticed. So we’re here to show some love to our buddies over at India and give the Pixel its just do.
For starters, the Pixel Concept has got a few features that will surely endear Tata to futuristic city-car lovers, including the set of scissor doors that opens all the way up to save external ergonomic space. It also has a new transmission called the "Zero Turn toroidal traction-drive Infinitely Variable Transmission" (IVT). What it does, apart from all the standard items on its list, is rotate one rear wheel forward and the other backward that when combined with acute angles on the front wheels, allowing the car to have a turning circle of just 8.5 feet.
As for the engine, there’s nothing exciting about. It’s a 1.2-liter turbocharged diesel engine that carries an estimated fuel consumption of a pretty efficient 69 miles per gallon.
Say what you want about Tata and the Nano, but you have to give the Indian automaker some credit for thinking way out of the box with their Pixel Concept.
It’s cute, charming, and stylish - three qualities that you can’t say about the Nano.
Tata Pr1ma Concept
The Tata Nano is definitely not the kind of car that catches a lot of buzz. However the Pr1ma Concept, revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, is. With this concept Tata Motors has taken a huge step forward. The vehicle was designed byPininfarina, and offers an indication of how the next generation of Tata saloons might be interpreted. The focus is on the distinctive, elegant design.
Conceived to provide a luxurious level of comfort, this 4-door has a straight-forward but very refined design. All this combined with twisting lines give the car the personality of a coupe. It is a solution that immediately adds value, compared to the basic essential design usually associated with the Tata brand.
The Tata Pr1ma addresses a higher segment of drivers; the external and internal measurements are larger than those of the Indigo, thanks in part to a longer wheelbase. The design balances fluidity and tension, and the result is an elegant look, that manages to be both classic and modern. This type of creation is what the Indian automaker needs to elevate themselves to the next level of automotive manufacturing. You may even see them popping up here in the U.S.
