Tata Harrier currently commands a waiting period of over 4 months.
Tata Motors had launched the Harrier 5-seater premium SUV in India in January 2019. The SUV has managed to outsell most of its rivals in the mid-sized SUV segment by a good margin. Tata Motors had delivered 2,075 units of the Harrier in April, while the rivals Mahindra XUV500 and Jeep Compass only manage 1,508 and 1,204 units respectively.
Despite slowing market conditions, Tata Harrier is doing pretty decent for the homegrown automaker. In March, Tata Motors sold 2,492 units of the Harrier. On the flip side, the Jeep Compass and Mahindra XUV500 managed only 1,441 and 1,916 units respectively. While the rivals are available in petrol and diesel fuel options, the Tata Harrier comes in diesel version only. Adding to it, the Harrier is available only in 2WD configuration and manual version only.
Tata is working on the petrol version of the Harrier, which is expected to arrive in early 2020. Adding to it, the SUV will also receive the automatic version soon. The AWD version of the Harrier and the 7-seater Harrier will also arrive in the second half of 2020. With the introduction of petrol engine, automatic and AWD options, the sales of the Tata Harrier are expected to go up as well.
Tata Harrier is currently available with a waiting period of over 4 months. The company has a pending order book of over 10,000 pre-orders for the Harrier. Tata is aiming to increase the production of the SUV to meet the rising demand. Besides Harrier, the homegrown automaker will soon introduce the Altroz premium hatchback. Scheduled to be launched around August-September 2019, the Tata Altroz will mark the debut of brand’s new ALFA modular platform.
