Tata Motors, one of the biggest manufacturers of automobiles in India has been around for years now. Currently, Tata has one of the youngest model line-ups in the country with the refreshed versions of the Nexon, Harrier, Tiago, Tigor and the all-new Altroz, which was launched earlier this year. Tata has plans to increase their models in the showrooms in the coming months and the brand has already showcased a few upcoming products at the 2020 Auto Expo. Which are the products that Tata Motors will launch in the coming months? Well, here is a list of all the Tata cars with their expected launch timelines that have changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Expected launch: Early 2021
Tata showcased the Gravitas at the Geneva Motor Show last year and unveiled the car in India at the 2020 Auto Expo. The Gravitas will become the flagship vehicle of the brand and it will be positioned higher than the Harrier. The Gravitas uses the same platform as the Harrier but is about 80mm taller and 63 mm longer. It will offer three-row seating, which is good enough for seven occupants. The car will come powered by the same 2.0-litre diesel engine that also powers the Harrier. Even the transmission options will be the same.
Tata Altroz EV
Expected launch: April 2021
Tata already offers the most affordable electric SUV you can buy in India with the Nexon EV. Soon, Tata will launch the all-new Altroz EV that is likely to become one of the most affordable Electric Vehicles in the Indian market. The Altroz EV was showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo. It is expected to have a range of about 300 km and drivetrain similar to the Nexon. It will be priced at around Rs 10 lakhs and we may get to see a low-range more affordable variant too.
Tata Hexa Safari edition
Expected launch: Late 2020
Tata will keep alive the Safari badge with the BS6 variant of the Hexa. The car was expected to be launched in these months but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the launch has been delayed. The Hexa Safari edition attracted a lot of attention at the 2020 Auto Expo. It will get an updated 2.2-litre diesel engine that produces a maximum power 156 PS and peak torque of 400 Nm. The car will offer an automatic and manual transmission as well. It is likely to be available in a single variant.
Expected launch: Mid 2021
Tata’s second car on the ALFA-Arc platform, the HBX was showcased at the Auto Expo as a concept vehicle. However, Tata claims that the production version of the HBX will be more than 95% similar to the concept version, which is huge. The entry-level crossover from Tata Motors will take on the likes of Mahindra KUV100 and Maruti Suzuki Ignis. It will get only a petrol engine and an optional AMT automatic transmission.
