We also learned about a significant milestone reached by the Skoda-VW group and saw some spy shots of the upcoming Tata Curvv. Here's a quick recap of the top news from the last week: 

Altroz Racer Teased

Following extensive testing on our roads, Tata Motors has released a few teasers for the upcoming Altroz Racer, confirming that this hot hatch will be available soon. Customers can now reserve the Altroz Racer offline at select Tata dealerships for a nominal fee of up to Rs 21,000, which may vary depending on the dealership. The Tata Altroz Racer will feature updated design elements outside as well as inside, and also the Nexon’s 120PS making turbo-petrol engine.

Mahindra XUV.e8 components patented

The Mahindra XUV.e8, an all-electric version of the Mahindra XUV700, has been spotted on test several times recently. Mahindra has now filed a patent for a new steering wheel design and a 3-screen integrated dashboard layout. According to the design patent image, the steering wheel will have an octagonal shape with two spokes. Mahindra is also likely to include an illuminated logo in the centre of the steering wheel. The automaker has also patented a three-screen dashboard configuration that includes the instrument cluster, an infotainment screen, and a separate screen for the front passenger.

Tata Curvv spied

Pictures of test mules of Tata Curvv coupe-SUV have been making the rounds on the internet for some time. This time, however, we got a glimpse of the taillights of the SUV. The spy shots reveal that it will get similar connected LED taillights as seen on the concept in February 2024. These taillights will likely feature welcome and goodbye animations, along with a sequential effect for the turn indicators, similar to those on some facelifted Tata cars like the Nexon, Harrier, and Safari
