The Racemo is built on a patented MOFlex Multi-Material Sandwich structure -a structural technology, enabling greater freedom in surface design, efficient large-scale part integration leading to modularity and faster time to market. According to Tata Motors, this is being used for the first time in the automotive industry for passenger vehicles. The Tamo Racemo is expected to make its India debut at the 2018 Indian Auto Expo.
