Tata Motors has announced that it will commence the introduction of its all-new BSVI range of products with passenger vehicles, starting from January 2020. This will be demonstrated by a grand showcase with 4 global unveils, 14 commercial and 12 passenger vehicle displays at the upcoming Auto Expo 2020, in India. As per reports, the company will take the wraps off a production-spec Hornbilll micro-SUV which was shown at the Geneva Motor Show last year as the H2X concept.
Additionally, Tata will also unveil the Gravitas seven-seat SUV along with the new Altroz. Tata may also unveil H5 Automatic and the facelifted versions of the Nexon and the Tiago. The recently-unveiled Nexon EV and the upcoming Altroz EV may also mark their presence at the expo.
Speaking at the occasion, Mr. Guenter Butschek, CEO and MD, Tata Motors said, “We are delighted to announce the theme for our pavilion at the Auto Expo 2020 – Connected India: Responsible and Sustainable Mobility Solutions. This theme will bring alive our future focus on CESS, which is – Connected, Electric, Shared and Safe. The future of efficient, green, sustainable mobility solutions needs to translate into reality. As a responsible corporate, we are doing every bit to contribute to this agenda and are gearing up to bring a new generation of products faster to market. We are excited to unveil our extensive range of future portfolio at the Auto Expo 2020 which are not only BSVI ready, but are designed and developed to truly enhance the value proposition for our aspiring customers.”
Tata Motors is building a common Connected Vehicle Architecture, which will serve the entire portfolio across Commercial, Passenger and Electric Vehicles, to enable the extended digital eco-system of its customers. To leverage the shared mobility ecosystem, Tata Motors will be providing innovative solutions in people and goods transport.
In addition to product showcases, the Tata Motors pavilion at Auto Expo 2020 will be conceptualised and designed to provide visitors with an interactive experience. With the help of an engaging digital interface, customers visiting the hall will indulge in games and stand a chance to win an exciting experience like never before.
Rather than limiting the scope to only emission migration to BS-VI, the company has also streamlined its portfolio with enhanced features, offering superior performance and added value enhancers for the benefit of the customers. The deployment of modular product architecture across its vehicle platforms has ensured a higher commonisation of parts, quicker time to market and lower costs for its vast range of offerings. The company is ready with its entire range of drivetrain combinations, including gasoline, diesel & CNG engines with manual, automatic and automated-manual transmissions for BSVI emission norms.
Mr. Rajendra Petkar, President & CTO, Tata Motors said, “The Tata Motors team has tirelessly worked towards a seamless transition to the BSVI regime. With the customer at the centre of our plans, we have designed & engineered our products keeping in mind the duty cycles and growing aspirations. From January 2020 onwards we will be introducing over 100 lead models with over 1000 variants. These will cover options of powertrain combinations, body styles, chassis configurations plus technologies imbibing connected, electric, shared and safety. Significant front loading of activities, use of digital product development tools and early involvement of globally reputed technology & supplier partners has helped us to accelerate the portfolio migration.”
