Tata unveils eMO electric car at ongoing Detroit Motor Show - VIDEO

Tata Technologies was selected by Michelin to display its electric MObility (eMO) engineering study EV as part of the prestigious Michelin Challenge Design display at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show.

Tata Emo is more of a concept car which doesn’t have ambitions to get into the production stages. The Emo electric small car will just exhibit the research effort made by Tata in developing new concepts with a futuristic view. The Tata Emo will be showcased by Michelin at the Detroit Auto Show 2012 on behalf of Tata technologies.

The concept electric car has capacity to accommodate four adults. The seats can be folded to increase boot space. The eMO concept car's design is inspired from the Tata Pixel concept car which was showcased at the Geneva Auto Show developed for European market. The Tata Emo doesn't have a hatch and hence the doors can be folded increasing luggage space.

Nigel Giddons, the chief engineer who led much of the development of the electric vehicle from Tata Technologies American headquarters in Michigan, termed the project "very fulfilling", adding, "We ve done a lot of concept work like this, but it was always driven by customers."

The Emo was designed as a "spartan wedge," with a glass top, seating for four and front doors measuring about twice as long as the rear ones.

Other specifications include a 100-mile estimated range on a single charge and a top speed of 65 miles per hour. It has a fixed hatch and its rear doors swing out from the back of the car, a set-up that creates large space for entering and exiting.
