Tata motors unveils its first digitally native car, Racemo. The car was developed with the help of a long term agreement between the company and Microsoft. This partnership will see the car appear on the upcoming Forza Horizon 3 on Xbox. This will be the first Indian car to have done that. The car is also the first to use Tata’s new connected tech, also a product of this partnership. The technology includes navigation, predictive maintenance, remote monitoring among other features.
Racemo is of the newly christened TAMO division of Tata motors. The spokesperson for the automobile giant called it an emotional and unexpected leap into the future. The car was unveiled as a concept car at the 87th Geneva International Motor Show. Racemo was designed in Italy and developed in India. It is expected to hit the roads in 2018. The car is a two-seater with a rear mounted mid-engine (RMR). It is powered by a 1.2 liter turbocharged Revotron aluminum engine. The transmission is a 6-speed AMT paddle shift. The car is expected to churn out 195 PS of max power at 6500 rpm. The peak torque is rated at 210 Nm at 2500 rpm. The acceleration from 0-100 is claimed to be less than 6 seconds. The ground clearance has been maintained at 165mm, an essential for Indian roads.
Tata has employed structural changes to Racemo. The car has Tata’s MOFlex multi-material sandwich structure. The concept of MOFlex was designed in Tata Motors Design Studio in Turin, Italy for greater structural technology.
The car will be available in two versions the Racemo and Racemo+. Racemo will be the street legal version of the concept car. Racemo+ will be a more track oriented variant available. Both of the versions will be available as a teaser on Microsoft Forza Horizon 3 on the Xbox.
