-Six of the 10 models from 2023 plan showcased in Auto Expo video
- First two from this list will be the Harrier and 45X premium hatchback
- All vehicles will be derived from the Alpha and Omega platform
Tata Motors had, sometime ago, revealed that it planned to introduce up to 12 new models by 2023 as part of its future expansion plans. Well now, here are six of them or at least here are six hints at what these models could be. They were revealed via a video that Tata had shown at the 2018 Auto Expo when showcased the Harrier and 45X.
The first off the lot will be the Harrier premium SUV and this will be followed by the production spec version of the 45X hatchback. The six vehicles that you see are underpinned by the Alpha and Omega platform. The former is for small cars while the latter will be used for vehicles of 4.4-meters.
The Alpha underpinned cars showcased here include compact SUV (codenamed Hornbill) which will be slotted in below the Nexon and a compact sedan that will take the position of the Zest. On the other side behind the Harrier, we can see an MPV as well as a large sedan. These vehicles will be underpinned by the Omega platform. The MPV is expected to be a rival for the Mahindra Marrazo and Maruti Suzuki Ertiga while the sedan will be a Honda City/Hyundai Verna competitor in the C-Segment of the Indian car market.
Each of these vehicles represent a place in the market where Tata has not had much success or is yet to enter. We are likely to see production versions of these cars within the next five years.
