Tata Motors Set To Introduce New EV Skateboard Platform In Near Future

In January, Tata’s decision to develop a new electric vehicle (EV) platform named ‘Sigma’ to support a range of battery-powered cars was revealed.

But that’s the company’s short-term plan and the roots of the Sigma platform can be traced back to the ALFA platform that underpins cars like the Altron and Punch.

In the long term, however, Tata aims to invest in an all-new EV architecture that won’t be rooted in any of the brand’s platforms designed to house an internal combustion engine.

Tata Passenger Electric Mobility Limited (TPEML) decided that an EV skateboard platform was the way to go, as it would allow the company to develop several futuristic products unconstrained by the limitations of a platform ICE.

This new EV platform from Tata will arrive after the second phase of the company’s EV strategy, which is expected to start with the Sierra EV from 2025, is well underway.

So, in the third phase, Tata’s electric vehicles will have more interior space and thanks to the skateboard platform, they will have a longer wheelbase, a radical exterior design, more range and better efficiency.

The automaker is currently said to be evaluating whether it would make more sense to develop the skateboard architecture itself or if it can purchase it from an independent vendor.
