Despite the Tata Safari Dicor’s removal from the official website, the Safari Storme has been kept alive meaning it is still on sale
Since the introduction of the Tiago hatchback last year, Tata Motors’ product strategy has taken a big twist as it allowed for a new family of vehicles to come in. The Tiago was quickly followed by the highly capable Hexa crossover and the former’s sub-four metre sedan derivate, the Tigor.
Last month the bestselling Tiago was announced to have achieved over one-lakh bookings in the domestic market. Hot on its heels, a recent report emerged on Team-BHP, citing one of its readers, said there are a number of changes being made to the homegrown brand’s fleet.
The official website of Tata Motors has been revamped and additionally some models have been taken off the list. It indicates a potential discontinuation of some of the brand’s long-standing models. The Safari Dicor seems to have faced the axe as it does not exist anymore on the website.
The report further said that a couple of Tata dealerships have confirmed of this matter. On the other hand, the Safari Storme has stayed on sale in order to keep the spirited brand name of the SUV alive and kicking. However, the biggest drama rests with the Indica and Indigo eCS twins.
Their web pages have said to be under maintenance leading to a speculation that they could probably be phased out from the entire lineup as well. The Indica was advertised as the first fully developed in-house car while the eCS initiated the sub-four metre segment before the arrival of Dzire.
Both the models formed the brand’s platform for several years and it will be a big move if Tata decides to pull the plug on them. The Tata Aria, which acted as the basis for the Hexa, was already written off as no new example has been sold since the last month of 2016.
With rumours of Tata phasing out the Nano fail to go away, concentrating only on the new age products could effectively keep the production costs down as they are related to each other in a number of ways by means of component sharing and other underpinnings.
