    Tata Harrier EV launch confirmed for FY2025
    Listen to this Article

    Tata Motors will launch two EVs in the ongoing financial year that ends on March 31, 2025, according to its latest investor day presentation. Earlier, we reported that the Curvv EV would arrive this festive season, and now, the homegrown brand has confirmed that its flagship electric SUV, the Harrier EV, would also be launched this fiscal.

    1. Tata Harrier EV to use Punch EV’s Acti.EV architecture
    2. Expected to get 60kWh battery with up to 500km of range
    3. Will get dual-motor set-up and all-wheel drive system

    Like the upcoming Curvv EV and the on-sale Punch EV, the Harrier EV will use the brand’s acti.ev architecture. While the vehicle is based on the same Land Rover-derived Omega platform used by the ICE-powered Harrier, it has been heavily re-engineered to support an electric powertrain. We expect the Harrier EV to feature a flat floor on the inside, and Tata has mentioned it’ll have vehicle-to-load (V2L) and vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) charging capacities.

    There’s no word yet on the Harrier EV’s battery capacity or range, but we expect it to sport a 60kWh battery pack that delivers about 500km of range on a single charge. The SUV will sport an electric motor on each axle, giving it an all-wheel-drive setup.

    Other details about the Harrier EV that are known include its design. The SUV concept showcased at Auto Expo 2023 was a close-to-production model, which means most of what we’ve seen – from the closed off grille area and new front and rear bumpers to the coupe-like roofline – will be on offer. Interior details, however, are scarce on the ground. Still, we expect most bits to be shared with the Harrier and Safari, along with some highlights from Tata’s current range of EVs.

    When it arrives, the Harrier EV is likely to have a direct rival in the form of Mahindra’s XUV700-based XUV.e8, which is expected to join the fray before the end of this year. Harrier EV and Mahindra XUV.e8 prices are expected to start above Rs 30 lakh, ex-showroom.
