Tata Motors is gearing up for the launch of electric versions of Harrier and Safari SUVs in India next year. Recently the test mules of both 2023 Tata Harrier And Safari Facelift have been spotted in a heavily disguised manner and one can easily make of that its overall design is inspired by the Harrier EV concept that Tata showcased at the 2023 Auto Expo. As expected, the electric version of Safari that was spotted testing was without a tailpipe and any noise that usually emanates from ICE vehicles. Meanwhile, ICE variants are also testing at the same time with new engines
In terms of exteriors, both SUV’s are likely to feature a new design that will include new bumpers, a new design for the grill, and redesigned headlamps and tail lights. Inside the cabin, we expect changes in the form of a new infotainment system and digital instrument cluster for giving a superior feel and ambience to prospective buyers that are seen on the 2023 Red Dark editions with subtle changes to them. It is also worth mentioning that with these particular launches, Tata will finally add all-wheel drive (AWD) and ADAS capabilities to both of these SUVs. The electric versions of both SUVs will feature multiple driving modes, a feature that will surely enhance their appeal and make them even more popular among the target audiences. In terms of the range, both SUV’s electric counterparts are likely to offer 500 km on one full charge.
There is no official announcement about the launch of these 2023 Tata Harrier And Safari Facelift electric SUVs in the Indian market but we estimate it to happen by the end of 2024. It will be interesting to witness how prospective buyers will respond to the electric versions of popular SUVs. Given the rapidly growing charging infrastructure in the country, the adoption of electric mobility in India is going to gather more pace and Tata definitely has the intention to become the flagbearer of this electric revolution.
