To strengthen its business, Tata Motors is taking several steps. It has partnered with FCA and will share the powertrain and other technology in near future – probably the Tata Q501 adapting Jeep Compass’ engine. Apart from that, the Indian automaker is focusing on more premium and global models.
Last month, Tata launched the Hexa crossover which grabbed everyone’s attention and managed to sell nearly 1,500 units. It also plans to roll out several other attractive cars including the Nexon compact SUV, Kite-5 (Tigor) compact sedan next month and Tiago Aktiv crossover.
Apart from these models, the automaker is also working on its upcoming flagship SUV Q501. The SUV will share its platform with Land Rover Discovery Sport. Tata Motors has also announced that it will roll out 7-8 cars based on 2 modular platforms. These strategies are expected to give the company’s sales significant boost in the approaching years.
