Here is a look at the five models expected out of the Tata Motors stable in 2021:
After a decent success with its Harrier SUV, Tata aims to consolidate its position in the SUV segment in India with the Gravitas SUV. The homegrown automaker has announced that the Gravitas will be launched by the last quarter of the current calendar year. The SUV was expected to be come out in the earlier part of the 2020, but the pandemic threw a wrench in its launch plans.
The Gravitas was showcased at the Auto Expo 2020. It is basically a longer version of the popular Harrier SUV which has a capacity of 5 occupants. It comes based on the Harrier’s OMEGA platform and will be most-likely longer and taller than its donor model by 63 mm and 80 mm, respectively.
Tata Altroz premium hatchback has been one of the best success stories for the carmaker in recent years. Now the carmaker is all set to launch the electric version of the hatchback soon. Recently, the carmaker launched the feature-packed Altroz XM+ variant to take on some of the rivals like the new Hyundai i20. With the Altroz EV, Tata Motors aims to offer a complete range in the premium hatchback segment. It is likely to be powered by a 30 kWh Lithium-Ion battery that can help the Altroz EV to cover around 350 kms in single charge.
Matching up to some of the competition, Tata Motors also expected to spice up the Altroz with a turbo variant. Tata Motors is planning to launch the turbo-petrol option of Altroz next year. It has already been spied testing on Indian roads a number of times. Apart from the new turbo-petrol powertrain, another highlight of the car will be the DCT setup, as currently the car is offered with a sole manual option. It is likely to be priced from ₹7.99 lakh.
