Novel vehicle concepts

TMETC's AE team has been leading R&D work and has established significant conceptual designs and prototypes to address the following vehicle design areas:

  • Innovative body concepts for future platforms with distributed manufacturing and low press shop investment, using novel bonding techniques

  • As a follow up from the LCVTP project, TMETC has continued development of lightweight technologies to achieve significant weight reduction in key areas of the vehicle, working with partners and suppliers to optimise materials and validation techniques.

  • Conceptual designs, such as the Tata Pixel introduced at the 2011 Geneva Motor Show, have provided TMETC's AE group with a significant impetus to develop advanced interior concepts for future vehicle platforms that are able to integrate new connectivity technologies and new materials.
