Tata Motors comes again to shock the world!
This Indian automotive company which is the makers of the world’s cheapest car, ‘Nano’, recently unveiled another masterpiece, named ‘Megapixel’ at the Geneva Motor Show.
Megapixel, according to the makers, is a RE-EV, ie, Range Extended Electric Vehicle. This indicates that this one is an electric car. The most important news is that the Tata Megapixel, the hybrid electric vehicle, is capable of covering whooping 900 kilometers on single fuel tank! This also reduces carbon emissions to just 22 grams/km

The Megapixel uses lithium-iron phosphate batteries that can be charged through an induction plate fitted to any parking space or garage. So, rather than plugging into a wall outlet, the car can be parked over the top of the charging station and charging begins automatically. The car's, which has four motors, maximum speed is 68.4mph and its total range is 900 km (559 miles). Megapixel has four sliding doors as well. The front doors slide forward and the rear doors slide back, giving completely pillar-less access to the interior.
It has a stunning turning radius of just 2.8 meters (9.2 ft)! An ideal city car for global urban environments.
The Megapixel was developed by Tata's design centres in India, the UK and Italy. Now the Indians have something to boast off. Tata, who is based in India, is the world's largest automakers. But just think the fact that India's vehicle ownership ratios are currently the same as America's were in 1912!!!
And...finally...don’t get too much excited, this car may never hit the roads and may remain a ‘concept’ at least for the next few years?!
