Tata Sierra EV launch confirmed for FY2026

Tata Motors has confirmed the launch of the highly anticipated Sierra EV in India for the fiscal year 2026. This announcement was made during the company’s recent investor day presentation, alongside plans to introduce the first model from its new Avinya range.

Tata Sierra EV Launch

The Sierra EV, initially showcased as a concept at Auto Expo 2020, is built on the Altroz’s ALFA platform. It features dimensions of 4,150mm in length, 1,820mm in width, 1,675mm in height, and a wheelbase of 2,450mm. A second, more production-ready concept was displayed at Auto Expo 2023, showcasing a conventional 5-door body compared to the unique four-door design of the 2020 concept.

Tata has now confirmed that the Sierra EV will be released before March 2026. The vehicle is expected to utilize the brand’s Acti.EV architecture, similar to the Punch EV and the upcoming Harrier EV, and will likely be based on Tata’s Gen2 EV platform.

Design-wise, the Sierra EV will retain several distinctive features from the original 1990s Sierra, such as the signature curved rear-side windows, squarish wheel arches, and a high-set bonnet, which were all present in the concept versions and are expected to carry over to the production model.

Tata Avinya EV Launch

In addition to the Sierra EV, Tata has also announced that the first Avinya EV will be launched by the end of FY2026. Vivek Srivatsa, Chief Commercial Officer of Tata Passenger Electric Mobility, has clarified that Avinya is not a single vehicle but a premium all-electric sub-brand that will include a range of cars and SUVs. The Avinya models will be built on JLR’s modular EMA platform, which will be localized to reduce costs.

Details about the first Avinya model remain scarce, including its body style and specifications. It’s also uncertain whether Tata and Avinya will operate as separate brands. However, it is confirmed that the Avinya range will be manufactured at Tata’s new plant in Tamil Nadu, an investment of Rs 9,000 crore. This facility, likely located in Ranipet, may also produce Jaguar Land Rover EVs.

Tata’s ambitious plans highlight its commitment to expanding its electric vehicle portfolio and strengthening its position in the EV market.
