The Logical Indian reached out to Suresh Rangarajan, the then Head of Corporate Communications at Tata Motors, who said that the event depicted in the viral graphic did occur. However, the claims made in the image are fake.
Guenter Butschek, CEO & MD, Tata Motors told The Times Of India that they had launched an electric vehicle based on omega architecture in Geneva 2018. Although the concept of the car is technically feasible, it is not commercially viable.
"We had in fact debuted a concept in Geneva 2018 that was based on Omega architecture. So it's technically feasible but not commercially viable. We would like to promote electric as a mainstream solution," he said.
Further, it was also confirmed that the Tata EVision electric sedan, which was showcased at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, will not be put into production. The CEO had cited commercial reasons for the decision, which essentially means that it would become very expensive to buy.

What Is A Concept Car?
A concept car is a car made to showcase new styling and/or new technology.
"A concept car is a development accelerator," explains DS design director Thierry Metroz. Its role, he says, is to "test the new technologies that we imagine for the future, and accelerate their development".
These vehicles are designed to show what the car company considers a hugely powerful, an all-electric self-driving machine might actually be like.
