Upcoming Tata Cars in India

Tata Motors has been on a launch spree after the company introduced its new IMPACT design philosophy last year. Tiago was the first product based on this design theme, which has been receiving an excellent response from buyers. The company had launched the Hexa 7-seater SUV, Tigor compact sedan and the all-new Nexon compact SUV under the same umbrella. In retrospect, Tata cars have evolved not just in aesthetic terms, but there has been an overall change from interior to the in-cabin tech etc. With two new SUVs line-up for launch in 2018, we bring a sneak peek of upcoming Tata cars that will be launched in 2018 and 2019.

This electric hatchback will derive its power from the same liquid-cooled 85kW electric drive motor that has been used in the Tigor electric. The torque figure of this unit stands at 200Nm.

The next product to join our list of upcoming Tata cars is the new Tata Safari Storme 2018. While the SUV is yet in developing stage, it is expected to take final shape by 2018-19. Reports opine that new Safari Storme will be based on company’s new Utility Vehicle Architecture. If all goes as planned, Tata could bring it to the next year’s Auto Expo, set to begin from February 9, 2018. The SUV is said to be designed at Tata’s design studios in UK, Italy and Pune. Tata’s British subsidiary, Land Rover will also give in cues in the development of 2018 Safari Storme. The power source on the SUV could be the 2.0-litre MJD oil burner from Jeep Compass, whereas transmission duties are likely to be carried over by 6-speed manual and automatic units. Know More

Tata Tiago side

Joining in the likes of performance hatchbacks in India this will be the first such model from Tata Motors. Primarily a more powerful version of Tiago, this would stand alongside other upcoming Tata cars at the 2018 Auto Expo. Powering the Tiago Sport will be the Nexon’s 1.2-litre, three-cylinder turbocharged Revotron engine that will be calibrated to put out 120bhp against 170Nm. It will also receive stiffed damping and lowered suspension set up. Aesthetically, the hatchback will retain basic contours and design, albeit Tata will add new livery to lend a sportier look. Among the changes, expect it to get a new front bumper with larger air-intakes, redesigned grille with new ‘S’ badge and new alloys etc. Styling updates to the inside will include new leather upholstery with red stitches and accents. Know More

Launch DateFebruary 2018

7. Tata Pelican Nano

Tata Pelican side view

This is the smallest car on our list of upcoming Tata cars heading to India. In other words, it could be described as the more premium avatar of Tata’s mini-hatchback, Nano. When we say premium version of Nano, it means the car will have more upmarket looks with subtle design changes.  Reports suggest that it could also take design cues from Nano Europa concept. The hatchback will source its power from a 1000cc, three-cylinder petrol engine that means it will be more expensive than the Nano. With more premium looks and larger engine, Pelican will be positioned above Nano GenX in Tata’s line-up. On the inside though, it could borrow elements from Tiago. While company is uncertain on the future of Nano, it is believed that Pelican could be launched as the replacement of the ageing mini-hatchback. Know More

Expected PriceRs 2.5 to Rs 3.5 lakh
Launch Date2018 – 2019

8. Tata Tiago Aktiv

Tata Tiago Aktive Cross front

Following Renault’s strategy of rolling out heavily accessorized derivatives of Kwid in every six months, Tata Motors is also readying a derivative of Tiago named ‘Aktiv’. The car is being developed under the codename Tiago 4 and is likely to be introduced as a limited edition initially. It could however be retained depending on the response from the customers. The accessory kit on Aktiv will include a host of bits including body cladding, sportier bumpers, roof rails, side stickers etc. There will be additional tech on the inside, though mechanically it will remain unchanged. That said, it will continue using the same 1.2-litre petrol and 1.05-litre oil burner from the regular model. Know More

Expected PriceRs 4.50 lakh
Launch Date2018 – 2019

9. Tata X451

Tata X451 micro SUV India

After rolling out cars in almost all popular segments, Tata is now planning to foray into the premium hatchback space. In this segment, the new Tata X451 (codename) will go up against the Maruti Baleno, Hyundai i20, Honda Jazz and Volkswagen Polo. This new hatch will be designed on Tata’s new Advanced Modular Platform (AMP) and we could see it by the side of other upcoming Tata cars at the 2018 Auto Expo. The premium hatchback will be designed with collective inputs from Tata’s design studios in UK, Italy and Pune. Tata might also use some of the design bits from the upcoming Nexon SUV. Mechanical support on the hatchback will most likely come from the 4-cylinder petrol & diesel engines which will either be built on Bolt’s cast-iron or Tiago’s lightweight aluminium engines. These engines will get a choice of manual of automatic engines. Know More

Expected PriceRs 5 to Rs 8 lakh
Launch Date2018 – 2019

10. Tata Q5

Tata Q5 SUV

After rolling-out seven-seat Hexa earlier this year in January, the company is now eyeing the premium SUV space. This will be among the few upcoming Tata cars to be built from ground up. It is expected that the SUV (codenamed Q501) will share underpinnings with Land Rover Discovery Sport. To give it a premium look, Tata will build the SUV jointly with its British subsidiary, Land Rover. Rivalling the popular players in the premium SUV space, it is likely to share it powertrains with the Nexon – i.e. 1.2-litre Revotron and 1.2-litre Revotroq. This new SUV will have 5-seats layout, and take on the likes of Hyundai Creta, Renault Duster and others in the segment. Know More

11. Tata Jayem Neo

Tata Jayem Neo India

The Pune-based carmaker will introduce the Nano electric under a new nameplate – ‘Tata Jayem Neo’. This electric hatchback will be produced and promoted by Jayem Automotives. The Jayem Neo is reported to target both the private buyers and fleet market. Under the hood, the electric hatch will house a 48-volt electric system making a top power of 23bhp. It will deliver a range of 200km in a single charge. With the batteries placed on the floor beneath front seats, it will have a better weight distribution and Tata could think of compressing the suspension system to curb weight. Though, it will be slightly heavier than the regular model. While the standard Nano weighs 695kg to 765kg, the Jayem Neo will carry a weight of around 800kg. Just so you know, the Nano electric was first revealed at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. Know More

12. Tata Q502/Merlin

The Q502 will be based on Land Rover Discovery platform and this makes it the most exciting model from the bunch of upcoming Tata cars. While Tata has not verified the Merlin nameplate for the SUV, but reports in media suggest it could carry Merlin badge. This premium SUV will most likely get a five-seat layout and will take on rivals including Jeep Compass and Hyundai Tucson. In Tata’s line-up, it will be positioned below Q501 7-seater SUV and will draw power from the 170bhp, 2.0-litre MJD-II diesel engine. The engine is expected to come with a six-speed manual and a six-speed automatic gearbox along with an optional AWD system. Know More
