One of the best-selling and popular carmaker in the Indian market has launched two cars, namely, Safari & Altroz iTurbo. Tata is now working on a host of new products across different segments.
7 new cars and new variants of existing cars combined is what the carmaker is working on, take a read to know more about these variants:-
1. Harrier Petrol
Currently Tata Harrier is available with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder Kryotec diesel engine. However it has indicated that soon a new petrol powertrain can be introduced which is most likely to be a a 1.5-litre turbocharged unit with a maximum power output of around 150 PS and a peak torque rating of 250 Nm with transmission duties to be same as the diesel powertrain offering, i.e. 6-speed MT and 6-speed AT.
2. Tata HBX (Hornbill)
A micro SUV concept called the HBX was revealed by Tata at the 2020 Auto Expo. With its new name, “Hornbill”, it is expected to be launched by April or May this year. The production-ready car will have a floating touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone connectivity, a semi-digital instrument cluster, split headlamps with LED DRLs, a Harman-sourced audio system among many other things.
3. Altroz EV
Third EV car, based on an ICE car, is what Tata is currently working on. While the car, Altroz EV, was showcased at last year’s Expo, the technical details of the same have not been revealed by the automaker. However upon its arrival, it shall be the first fully-electric premium hatchback in India with a range of around 300 – 350 km on a single full charge.
4. Tiago Turbo
A turbo variant, for its smallest hatch Tiago, shall also be introduced by Tata. This shall serve as a replacement for the Tiago JTP. Coupled to a 5-speed MT will be the same 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine which Altroz iTurbo has. Tiago Turbo shall lock horns with the Hyundai Grand i10 Nios Turbo.
5. Tigor Turbo
This willdirectly rival the Hyundai Aura Turbo and is currently priced between Rs 5.39 – 7.49 lakh (ex-showroom). However, the upper range shall certainly be increased with the introduction of the turbo-petrol powertrain.
6. Tiago CNG
The CNG variant of Tata Tiago is most likely to be offered with a five-speed manual gearbox which shall result in a better fuel economy, which is eventually going to increase the sales. The CNG powered Tiago, as per speculations, can be launched very soon.
7. Tigor CNG
The CNG varian of Tigor will help the automaker to expand the range and also a fuel economy close to 30 km/kg in the CNG version of the car can be targeted by Tata. However, we do expect the power figures of the 1.2-litre Revetron petrol engine to go down by a bit on the CNG variant.
