Tata Motors hopes to break into a new body type with the Avinya. Beginning at the front, the Avinya Concept has a huge rectangle-shaped front bumper. It also contains the mesh design as well as two U-shaped louvres. The absence of the company emblem on the bonnet, though, is noticeable. Instead, Tata Motors has equipped the Avinya with LED DRLs that extend the length of the dual-tone bonnet, joining in the centre to create a 'T.'
With the 22-inch swirl-shaped wheels pushed to the edges, the Avinya features reduced side overhangs. The low, flat black roofline flows down to the C-pillar, while the sharp L-shaped black insert on the doors adds an edgier touch to the otherwise basic and crease-free body design. The remarkable butterfly doors that open in the middle make their debut in any Tata Concept car.
At the back, the design features continue to be remarkable. The single-piece narrow tail light stripe installed on the bootlid is eye-catching. Rather than hugging the back fenders, both sides of the light are elevated. The rear bumper resembles the front bumper farther down, and the 'Avinya' logo can be seen below the boot line.
The Tata Avinya's cabin deviates from the brand's current design language and emphasises simplicity. The Avinya is decorated in a light beige and tan colour scheme throughout the cabin. There are no traditional displays or even a specific driver's display for the multimedia system. In fact, a tiny display panel with touch-based controls is housed within a square steering wheel with rounded sides.
The four individual air vents located on the door pads are another creative feature to the interior. The speakers have been relocated from the doors and hidden behind the headrests, while an air diffuser is housed in the front centre console. The prototype also had a rotating driver seat, although it's unclear whether this would make it into the real vehicle.
The Tata Curvv will be built on the Gen 2 architecture, while the Avinya will be built on the more adaptable Gen 3 electric vehicle platform. More Tata EVs will use the new Gen 3 architecture in the future years, in a variety of sectors and body designs.
The capacity to house larger battery packs, which can result in an electric range of exceeding 500 kilometres, is the new platform's hallmark. The battery packs will also be capable of ultra-fast charging. The Avinya will have linked automobile technology, improved driver assistance technologies, and better structural safety.
Avinya is expected to go into production in 2025, according to Tata Motors. The Indian automaker has also stated that the Avinya would be a fully electric vehicle with a length of almost 4.3 metres and a wheelbase of 1.3 metres. It will make its debut following the newly revealed Curvv SUV, which is set to hit the market in 2024.
