A spy image of Tata Nexon mild-hybrid variant has surfaced on the inter-web. It is expected that Tata Nexon and Tata Altroz will get a mild-hybrid system after both the models are updated to comply with the BS VI emission norms by March 2019. Sources in the know have revealed that the spotted mild-hybrid variant was manufactured under a test production run.

Tata Altroz Clear Images Out

As for Tata Motors’ first-ever mild-hybrid system, the details are yet sketchy. It is learnt that two 48-volt systems were being built at Tata’s European Technical Centre in Coventry, UK under the codename ‘PO’ and ‘P2’. Reports further suggest that one of the mild-hybrid systems will be used in Nexon and Altroz. 

Tata Motors has already said that its flagship compact SUV, Harrier could also receive a hybrid variant to meet the next phase of CAFÉ. As for Nexon, the 1.5-litre Revotorq petrol variant will continue to be sold alongside the new petrol-hybrid trim. It is reported that the diesel unit is in the process of upgrading for the upcoming BS VI emission norms that will come into force in the coming months.

The BS VI compliant 1.5-litre Revotorq unit will also be offered on the Altroz. Apart from developing mild-hybrid variants of its popular models, the company is also working on a couple of electric vehicles. Currently, it offers just two models in its electric portfolio, Tiago EV and Tigor EV, out of which only the electrified Tigor sedan is available for commercial use (by government and fleet owners). As is known, it will also roll out a hybrid variant of its upcoming hatchback Altroz. Aside from this, a battery-powered variant of the production-spec H2X concept, internally called X445 is also in the making.
