Tata Motors To Unveil Tamo Sportscar Today
Tamo, Tata Motors’ new performance sub-brand, will unveil its first car at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show today. According to CarWale, Tata has unveiled the brand and logo of Tamo last month along with the announcement that the upcoming car would be showcased at Geneva. The first-ever vehicle under Tamo is expected to be a sports car and will give the Indian automaker's venture into a premium segment. Currently, the firm is aiming to create different investments in order to move its image ahead in terms of being one of the global automakers.
This new sports car is said to be a reflection of Tata’s latest design philosophies. Along with the release of the car, the company will also discuss car technology that it is developing in collaboration with the well-known tech giant, the Microsoft.

Features Of Tata Motors' Sportscar
As reported by NDTV, Tamo's upcoming sports car will have a mid-mounted petrol engine and will be rear-wheel drive. The upcoming car will be less powerful compared to other Indian homegrown sports car, such as the DC Avanti. However, Tamo's sportscar certainly has a lot to offer especially user-friendly features.
Tamo is very confident with its design, in fact, the company teases its sportscar on Twitter a couple of weeks ago. The sports car is rumored to have a plastic composite body shell in order to keep weight down that can also mean for a better handling balance. "To secure our future in a rapidly changing environment, the advanced mobility solutions space is of utmost importance. The introduction of TAMO will help us co-design India's automotive footprint by taking new technologies and mobility concepts as a new ecosystem," Tata Motors Managing Director and CEO Guenter Butschek said.
