Rushlane’s According, TPEM’s VP-Product Line & Operations Anand Kulkarni has revealed that Tata Motors is looking into autonomous driving. They say that the architecture is fully capable of autonomous technology at Level 3 or above. He further added that fully autonomous driving is also possible for this platform, but there needs to be enough demand in the global market.
When it comes to providing large and advanced level autonomous driving, Tesla’s name comes at the top. The company has been offering highly advanced level autonomous driving systems in all its electric vehicles for a long time. Autonomous driving systems drive the electric vehicle itself through highly complex algorithms. However, it requires a driver.
The Avinya concept is based on a full EV platform, which could make cars between 4.1 meters to 4.5 meters in length. The company says that this platform is capable of adopting a wide range of drivetrains along with a variety of body styles. Models based on this platform can be front-wheel drive, rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. According to Kulkarni, it is important that this architecture meets all the safety regulations for autonomous driving. The platform will be equipped with advanced connectivity features which will play a key role in autonomous technology.
The company has already confirmed that it plans to launch ten new electric cars by 2026. The report says that large EVs based on the Avinya concept will be able to deliver a range of 500 km on a single charge, which should be around 370 km in real world range.
