Tata Harrier will be the first product to be based on the new OMEGA platform and it will be followed by a premium hatchback in the second half of 2019
Tata Motors is all set to introduce more vehicles in the quest of expanding its reach and dominance in each and every segment of our automobile industry. To achieve the same, the car manufacturer will be extending the PV line-up to as many as 12-14 models.
If all goes to the plan, we are not too far away from witnessing more Tata cars owning the roads in the country as the new offerings from Tata are already doing great and are alluring more and more customers.
Mayank Pareek, who is the President of the automobile veteran in the country, in an interview said,
“We will have 12-14 sets of cars. The current PV line-up includes 10 models, but that doesn’t mean that only 2-4 new models are planned. Current models that do not hold a bright future will likely go away for good, making space for new designs”.
Mr Pareek also added that
“commonisation will be higher and as a result cost and operational efficiency will be better. That said, the customer will get the experience of a very different craft from each of the cars”.
Alfa Arc and Omega Arc will be the only platforms used in future by the manufacturer. The new platforms which will help Tata in bringing the production costs down have been named as Common Modular Platform (CMP) and D8 platform for internal uses. A platform ratio of more than 4 is what the company is aiming to achieve.
According to which, each platform must have at least 4 vehicles using it as its foundation. The first car featuring the new platform is the all-new Tata Harrier. More vehicles are expected to follow the suite in the near future including Tata X451, the replacement of Tata Bolt.
Also, Tata H7X, a 7-seater version of the Tata Harrier should also hit the roads by 2020. New vehicles competing with the likes of Maruti Ignis such as Tata Hornbill will arrive in 2021. And by 2023, the replacements for Tata Tiago, Nexon, and Tigor should also see the light of the day.
