Tata Motors working on eMO electric car

Tata Motors is working with French auto major Dassault to produce an electric car eMO that would cost around 10 lakh. The company’s Vehicle Programs & Development (VPD) Group which operates from four centres of excellence – Pune, Detroit in the US, Coventry in the UK and Stuttgart in Germany – and has about 300 engineers, developed the eMO concept car which was showcased recently at the Detroit Auto Show as a part of the Michellin Design Challenge. The VPD group used a multidimensional approach to vehicle engineering and development while developing the eMO concept car. The architecture of the car maximises the interior space while minimising the interior footprint. With its rear seats articulated the vehicle can serve as a cargo carrier for personal uses without the need and cost of having a dedicated trunk in the car. The manufacturing, assembly and other associated processes use green product materials and have eliminated the use of conventional body and paint shop that are environmentally polluting. Some of the advantages of the eMO over a conventional internal combustion engine are the smoother aerodynamic surfaces and shorter overhangs. Tata Technologies has completed the first feasibility study of the eMO using Dassault Systemes’ 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.
