Tata Motors is literally on fire!!! They are launching all new models one after the other. In the upcoming Geneva Motor Show which will start on 7th of March Tata will unveil not one, not two but four new models. One among them is the bigger sibling of Harrier SUV which is currently known as H7X.
Earlier today, Tata released a teaser which gave us vague idea about the interiors. They had also teased the gear knobs in the H7X. It was similar to the one seen on Jaguar’s and an electronic parking brake was also seen in the image.
On the outside, H7X will have a slightly toned down design, and the window line will be different from the Harrier too. The upcoming SUV will get rear quarter glass for the third-row passengers. Tata H7X is based on Omega Arc platform is derived from the Land Rover’s D8 platform which we have already seen in Harrier.
Land Rover Discovery Sport is also based on Omega Arc platform, but changes are made to it to keep the costs down. The all-new Tata H7X will be powered by the same 2.0-litre KRYOTEC diesel engine that powers the Harrier. It generates a maximum of 140 PS and a peak torque of 350 Nm in the Harrier but is expected to churn out more power in the H7X.
The teaser images of the gear knob indicate that the Harrier will also get an automatic transmission, which is likely to be a Hyundai sourced 6-speed automatic transmission. Tata H7X was earlier spotted testing at Tata’s private track at Tata Motors plant in Pimpri, near Pune recently. It was spotted along with Tata Nexon and Tata Safari. When launched H7X will be Tata Motors most expensive brand.
Tata Motors will unveil four new models at the Geneva motor Show including the H7X SUV. Geneva Motor Show has always been very important for the manufacturer. The first model that was unveiled by the brand at Geneva was Indica.
Other cars that will be unveiled along with H7X are Tata 45X or Altroz premium hatchback, an electric variant of Altroz and the micro SUV Hornbill. All these cars will be launched in India over the next 18 months. This will give Tata Motors one of the Indian car industry’s freshest line-ups. Sales are also likely to grow by a big margin, making Tata Motors challenge Mahindra for third place in the Indian car market.
