Tata is expected to bring in as many as three new cars in 2023 and here we have listed all of them to give you an early preview
In the calendar year 2023, Tata Motors is expected to launch as many as three new models. The Nexon is currently the best-selling model for the homegrown manufacturer while the Punch micro SUV has also been well received amongst customers. Moving up the range, the Harrier and Safari are known for garnering decent sales numbers.
Tata could strengthen its domestic range with the facelifted Harrier and Safari while a new EV could also arrive. Here are the three cars we expect Tata to launch in CY2023:
1. Updated 2023 Tata Harrier:
The facelifted version of the Tata Harrier has already been caught on camera testing and it appears to have received a redesigned grille, updated front and rear bumpers, new set of alloy wheels, etc. Since it will be a mid-cycle update, do expect only evolutionary changes. However, the interior could gain a number of new features.
The equipment list will likely include a larger touchscreen infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, a large panoramic sunroof, automatic climate control, powered driver and front passenger seats, a heads-up display, a 360-degree camera system, etc. To spice things up, it may also come with ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance System) based technologies.
2. Updated 2023 Tata Safari:
In a similar fashion to its five-seater sibling, the 2023 Tata Safari could also get a slew of visual revisions inside and out. Since it is currently the flagship SUV for the brand, we can expect latest connected car tech, ADAS based functionalities including AEB, Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Keep Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, etc. Both SUVs will retain the 2.0-litre Fiat-sourced four-pot turbo diesel engine making 170 PS and 350 Nm.
3. Tata Punch EV/Altroz EV:
The good reception for the recently launched Tata Tiago EV, which received 10,000 bookings in just a day, Tata could bring in the electric version of the Punch or the Altroz as early as next year.
However, the company looks to be contend with introducing one new EV every two years but the ever shifting momentum in the car market could lead to Tata launching either the Punch EV or the Altroz EV with a possible driving range of well over 350 km. It could follow the Ziptron technology and will likely be positioned above the Tiago EV.
