Tata’s new-age Impact design philosophy and strategy to rejuvenate its products with two new platforms – Omega and Alfa has surely been working in the favour of the carmaker. The company had confirmed that it will launch 12 new cars based on the Omega and Alpha architectures with an investment of $1 billion. In coming months (i.e. from August 2019 to March 2020), the home-grown carmaker will launch 8 new models in the country.
The first Tata product to arrive in the market is the Altroz premium hatchback that will see a release during 2019 festive season. It will also be the brand’s first model to be based on the Alpha platform. Tata will also introduce its electric version (Altroz EV) in the second half of 2020. The carmaker has already confirmed that it will bring in the 7-seater version of the Harrier that was previewed as Tata Buzzard at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
Tata Buzzard 7-seater SUV will come to India with a different name in early 2020. To be positioned above the Tata Hexa, the Buzzard will become the new flagship model of the company. The Tata H2X mini SUV concept that was showcased at this year’s Geneva Motor Show, might debut in its production avatar at the 2020 Delhi Auto Expo. Its India launch is likely to happen by mid 2020.
Besides this, Tata will introduce facelifts of its 3 popular models – Tiago hatchback, Tigor subcompact sedan and Nexon subcompact SUV. While the Tiago and Tigor facelifts might hit roads in early next year, the updated Nexon is likely to go on sale by the end of this year. The Tata Harrier with BS6-ready engine and an automatic gearbox will also make its way later this year.
