The auto industry has been witnessing a massive slowdown for the past couple of months. The upcoming Diwali festive season, however, is being seen as a time which could help lift the gloomy clouds from the fate of dealers as well as manufacturers. For the same, auto companies are offering huge discounts over their model lineup and even dealerships are not behind in offering special incentives. But a Tata dealer in Madhya Pradesh takes gets the honour of offering one of the most tempting and ludicrous deals this festive season. This Tata dealership is offering a free Honda scooter to those who buy the selected Tata models during the offer period.
The cars on which this offer is being dished out include the Nexon, Tiago and Tigor. The offer is available up till September 30, which means not much time is left before this crazy deal goes away. Do note that this is not an official offer by Tata but a dealer specific order in order to beat the slowdown blues. In fact, the current state of the automotive sector has resulted in a lot of dealerships being closed down due to continuous losses. The auto companies have also regularly halted production for brief periods of time so as to avoid an inventory pileup.
Therefore, the upcoming Diwali festive season will see a lot more of such fantastic deals being offered by companies and dealers in a bid to revive sales. Tata’s official offers for its cars are also quite good as the manufacturer is offering discounts upto Rs. 1.50 lakh on its model lineup. The car being offered on discount include the Tiago, Tigor, Nexon, Hexa, and the Harrier. The discount schemes, termed the ‘Festival of Cars’, include a total discount of Rs. 70,000 on the Tiago and Rs. 1.15 lakh on the Tigor. Further, the Nexon is getting discounts worth up to Rs 85,000, the Harrier with Rs 50,000 benefit scheme, and the Hexa with Rs 1.5 lakh benefit scheme.
The coming month of October is likely to bring even bigger discount schemes on the plate as Dussehra and Diwali, both of which are major festivals, are occurring next month. As always, the Diwali festive season has been one of the best months for car and bike sales and the manufacturers are hoping that this year would be no different.
In the coming time, Tata will launch several new models so as to increase its market presence as well as sales. First among them will be the Altroz premium hatchback, which is expected to be launched in January and will rival the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai Elite i20 and the Honda Jazz among others. The Altroz will be Tata’s first car to use the ALFA platform and will get powered by Nexon’s engines, albeit in a different state of tune. Following the Altroz will be the launch of the much-awaited 7-seater Harrier SUV, which could be called Cassini. It is longer and taller than the Harrier but will use the same platform and engine, albeit in a more powerful state of tune. Apart from these, Tata is working on two new SUVs that could be launch by the end of 2020 or 2021. One of the is a micro-SUV codenamed the Hornbill while the other is a Hyundai Creta challenging compact SUV codenamed the Blackbird.
