The Tata pavilion in Auto Expo 2010 had plenty to show for apart from the Tata Aria Crossover MPV, which definitely hogged most of the limelight. At the 2010 Indian Auto Expo, Tata Motors showcased the Tata Indica Electric which will hit Indian streets sometime in late 2010-early 2011. While we’ve brought you details and pics of the Tata Indica EV before, this is the first time that the Tata Indica EV is being showcased in India.
Indian hatchback enthusiasts have always lusted after hot hatches. The Fiat Palio 1.6 and the Hyundai Getz 1.5 CRDI, while satiating the enthusiasts’ thirst never really got going. Tata Motors realize that and hence they unveiled a high performance concept of the Indica Vista called the Indica Vista S. This sporty hatchback looked the part with a redesigned front bumper, a new grille, rear diffusers and twin exhausts of which one was a dummy.
Now, if only Tata plonks in a 100+ Bhp engine in the Vista S’s engine bay and launches it soon. Meanwhile, the Tata Nanos were there too, in vivid colors that is. And the crowd just couldn’t get enough of the cute Nanos which has still managed to retains it’s novelty value.
