Tata Motors showcased a concept car called the TAMO C-Cube, at the Future Decoded 2017 which is India’s largest digital transformation event organised by Microsoft India. The TAMO C-Cube was showcased as part of the ‘Product Transformation’ theme at the event.
TAMO is a sub-brand from Tata Motors with an objective to redefine mobility solutions in India. Tata Motors has also joined hands with Microsoft India to develop connected cars with advanced technologies which will make it easy for customers to stay connected on-the-go.
The TAMO C-Cube concept showcases the use of advanced structural technology. This technology which will enable Tata Motors to bring forward breakthrough products from TAMO.
TAMO C-CUBE SHOWCASES TATA MOTORS’ ADVANCED STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGY
The first product from TAMO that will likely head to the production line will make its global debut at the 87th Geneva International Motor Show. It will be a mid-engine, two-seater sports car. While Tata Motors has not revealed many details about the TAMO C-Cube, the concept could form the basis for its future hatchbacks.
The TAMO C-Cube concept car displayed at the event is unlike what we have seen from Tata Motors till date. The two-door hatchback features the company’s new IMPACT design language. The front sports projectors with LED DRLs, a honeycomb grill between the lights makes the front look cohesive.
The side also carries the elements from the IMPACT design language which include the slingshot line and the Diamond DLO. Cooling vents appear towards the bottom and extend till the running board. The TAMO C-Cube is fitted with 17-inch Matte Black O.Z. Superturismo LM rims, wrapped with Yokohama Parada Spec-2 205/40 R17 tyres.
The rear (not shown here) gets a very wide look due to the bulging fenders. It also features wrap around tail lamps powered by LEDs. The lamps also have a black design element which carves itself into the tailgate. The bumpers include huge cut out for the vents and the honeycomb pattern spreads across the width.
While Tata Motors has not revealed any details regarding the powertrain, the design features of the concept car point towards the use of a rear mounted engine. If that is the case, the C-Cube could very well be a precursor for a future Tata Nano.
