It is no secret that Tata Motors is gaining positive response for its new breed of cars from buyers in India. The company will soon launch the exciting Tata Harrier 5-seater premium SUV, and is working on a range of new exciting cars in the near future. Speculations are on rife that Tata Motors could bring back the iconic Sierra nameplate, though officials were tight-lipped on the development. In a latest development, Pratap Bose, Head of Design at Tata Motors said that the next-gen Sierra would be a very cool car to launch.
Speaking to AutoCar India, Pratap Bose, said, “A lot of people want to see the Sierra back. I don’t know if that would work or not, in some form, but I think a new Sierra would be a very cool car to do, actually.” Also See – New-Gen Tata Sierra Rendered
Not just Sierra, the company is also considering a modern-day Sumo. However, Pratap Bose believes that the vehicles have changed dramatically over the last two decades and it would require thorough investigation before reviving any of these 2 SUVs. The Sumo did well for the homegrown automaker, though taste of buyers is now changed. The next-gen Sumo would continue to be a people-mover, but would have different characteristics and design.
