Tata Motors is currently on a brand transformation spree. The Indian automaker had set a target of becoming the third largest car manufacturer in the country by 2020, which it has already achieved. Financially, Tata Motors is aiming to be a debt-free organization in the next couple of years. In order to do so, the company is constantly launching all-new products in varied segments.
This started with the Tata Tiago in 2016, which managed to bring a significant amount of interest towards the manufacturer. It was then followed by multiple new Tata cars, including the Tigor, Hexa, Nexon and Harrier. All these models have performed pretty well in their respective segments. In fact, the new launches have cumulatively boosted Tata Motors’ monthly sales figures by over 35% in the past one year. The company currently enjoys a 7.60% market share in the Indian passenger car market.
However, Tata Motors is aiming for a much larger market share in the future. As a result, there is a slew of new upcoming Tata cars that will be launched in India in the next couple of years. A majority of these new models will be based on the company’s latest IMPACT 2.0 design philosophy and will thus carry on the smart and trendy looks that are seen on the latest Tata products.
Tata cars always garner huge interest from Indian customers. And with products like the Tiago, Tigor, Hexa and Nexon, this customer interest has touched new heights. Hence, every new car buyer wants to know the list of upcoming cars from Tata Motors in the country, before making a final purchase decision.
We have thus compiled a comprehensive list of all new upcoming Tata cars that will be launched in 2020 and 2021.
1. Tata HBX
Tata Motors showcased a micro-SUV concept, the HBX, at this year’s Auto Expo. With the growing demand for SUVs in India over a large price range, Tata is trying to offer an SUV at every price point. The HBX concept thus preview’s the company’s entry-level SUV in India. During the concept unveil, the company officials have claimed that the HBX-based production model will be launched in India by the end of this year.
Interestingly, Tata Motors’ officials have also revealed that the HBX is 95-97% production-ready. So the end product will be a lot similar to what has been showcased. This will make the HBX one of the most visually appealing cars on sale at this price point. Based on the Altroz’s platform, the HBX is also expected to share its drivetrain with the premium hatchback. We also expect Tata to offer an all-electric version of the HBX in India.
|Expected India Launch||Diwali 2020|
|Expected Price Range||Rs. 5 lakh to Rs. 8 lakh|
2. Tata Gravitas
Currently, the flagship model in the Tata Motors lineup is the seven-seater Tata Hexa SUV. However, the company is also working on a completely new flagship SUV that will be placed a slot higher than the Hexa and will likely compete with the likes of the Toyota Fortuner and Ford Endeavour. Called the Tata Gravitas, this new SUV will essentially be a 7-seater version of the Tata Harrier, which is already on sale in the country. We have also seen the Gravitas in its production-ready form at the 2020 Auto Expo. As a result, its launch is just around the corner.
Powering the Tata Gravitas premium SUV will likely be a Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre MultiJet diesel engine. This is the same powerhouse that does duty under the hood of the Jeep Compass. Tata is also expected to offer Land Rover’s multi-terrain modes with the Q502, thus adding a competitive edge over its rivals.
|Expected India Launch||January 2021|
|Expected Price Range||Rs 18 lakh – Rs 22 lakh|
Tata Motors is one of very few manufacturers in India who are serious about Electric mobility. The company already has the Nexon EV and Tigor EV on sale in India and is now planning to bring another model in its all-electric lineup – the Tata Altroz EV. Cosmetically, this new electric car will be similar to its gasoline-powered avatar, albeit a few blue highlights, a new set of alloy wheels, and a new exterior body colour.
Powering the Altroz EV in India will be a permanent magnet DC Electric motor that will draw power from a lithium-ion battery pack. Though official specifications are yet to be revealed, we expect the Altroz Electric to be capable of covering around 200 km on a single charge.
|Expected India Launch||April 2021|
|Expected Price Range||Rs 10.99 lakh – Rs 13.99 lakh|
4. Tata X452 Sedan
Tata is silently working on a premium sedan that will compete against the likes of the Hyundai Verna and Honda City. The company did show a concept car, named the Tata Peregrin at the Geneva motor show last year, but information about the production model is still scarce. The model is internally codenamed as the X452 and is expected to launch by the end of 2021.
|Expected India Launch||End of 2021|
|Expected Price Range||Rs 10 lakh – Rs 14 lakh|
