The new EVISION Sedan concept features the new Impact Design 2.0 which seems a lot bold, aggressive and catchy in terms of appearance.

The rear has a Sport-back kind of tail with integrated catchy LED tail lights and horizontal character lines on the boot.
On the inside the interiors come in bright beige colour that makes the cabin look a lot larger and roomier. The Concept gets a retractable central infotainment screen. Instrumentation is taken care by a large LED screen with digital dials. Slim AC vents come with brushed metal surrounds and lots of wood inserts around to make the car look and feel ultra premium. The steering wheel gets a flat bottom design with leather wrapping with wood, gloss inserts and paddle shifters. The Tata E-VISION Concept also gets a glass panoramic roof.
