Last week, Tata Motors presented the Sierra EV, a production-ready electric SUV concept at the India Auto Expo 2023 in New Delhi. The core brand of the Tata Group, which also owns Jaguar and Land Rover, has major electrification plans through its subsidiary Tata Passenger Electric Mobility.

The company has committed to launching 10 electric vehicles in different product segments and body styles in India by 2027. These include the existing Nexon EV, Tigor EV and Tiago EV models, which are scheduled to start shipping this month. This new Sierra EV Concept is a preview of another upcoming electric vehicle from Tata, scheduled for launch in 2025.

The Tata Sierra EV is a heavily upgraded version of the eponymous concept unveiled at Auto Expo 2020 in India. Except that it looks pretty much production-ready now. The model is compact, but should offer a spacious interior with a large luggage compartment.

The design of the Sierra EV is based on the look of an adventure SUV with balanced proportions, high ground clearance, an upright and flat bonnet, muscular underbody protection and black trim on the wheel arches, door sills and bumpers.

Designers have retained the Sierra EV’s identity by blacking out the C and D pillars. The rear is now accessible via traditional doors. The original concept had sliding doors. Exterior design highlights also include the sleek headlights, connected by an illuminated LED strip, which is reflected at the rear in a similar setup for the taillights.

Inside, the Tata Sierra EV Concept adopts a horizontal design with a modern dashboard that includes a central touchscreen, a digital instrument cluster, a multifunction steering wheel with an illuminated logo in the center, and a chunky shifter atop a suspended center tunnel. In the rear, the Sierra EV offers lounge seating, which is said to offer more space than a vehicle from a higher segment. The rear seats even have a reclining function like in Business Class.

According to Autocar India, the production version of the Sierra EV SUV will be launched sometime in 2025 and will sit above the Safari in the model range. did not comment on the specifications, but said that the Sierra will be available with both electric and combustion engines. The Sierra will be based on the company’s ALFA (Agile Light Flexible Advanced) architecture.
