Tata Upcoming cars – Lot to expect
Tata Upcoming cars in India
A subsidiary of the Tata Group of Companies, Tata Motors stepped into the Indian car market only in early 90s. But it soon went on to become a big name in the car market and is currently one of the largest car makers in the country credited with making the world's most affordable cars. Some of the possible new arrivals from Tata in the coming years are as below.
Tata Nano, claimed to be the cheapest car in the world was severely criticised for not having a diesel motor. Tata is now expected to bring out a diesel model of the same after improvising some of its styling as well as features. The diesel engine will give it high fuel efficiency which will make it most desirable among the Indian car lovers. It may also be the cheapest diesel car of the country at just Rs 2.5 lakhs.
Tata Manza CS, a car raised on the Indigo Manza platform is likely to make its appearance soon this year. The 2015 model would be less than four metres in length and can avail excise duty benefits. This in turn may make it cheaper than the current model. It is roughly expected to be priced in Rs 5 – Rs 7 lakhs bracket. Tata will offer the Manza CS in both petrol and diesel models and it may get few up-to-date features as well.
Tata Kite is another possible arrival, a hatchback based on Indica’s XO platform. It may come in petrol as well as diesel engines and also be equipped with an AMT gearbox. This hatch which is designed to substitute the Indica will be priced quite aggressively in the car market here. Also expected is its twin, the Kite sedan which is set to replace the Indigo eCS. The upcoming sedan will be powered by the same engines seen in the recent Zest. Both these Kite cars are expected to make their appearance early next year. The hatchback may come at Rs 4 to Rs 5 lakhs while the sedan may cost slightly more in the range of Rs 5 to Rs 6.5 lakhs.
Tata Motors is also set to enter the luxurious SUV segment in collaboration with the prestigious Jaguar Land Rover. Its new SUV codenamed as Q5 is expected to be ready within next two years. It would be based on Land Rover’s Free Lander and might be rather costly at around Rs 20 to 25 lakhs.
Tata Mini Cat, Vista D90 Xtreme, X0 hatchback, Mini Aria and Megapixel are some other cars that are still in the pipeline. If Tata can bring diesel automatic cars at cheaper prices then they can surely succeed in the long run.
