Tata Vista and Manza discontinued from the Indian market
Tata Vista and the Manza were the ones to buy if you wanted a passenger car from Tata motors. These are replaced by now-available Bolt and Zest compact sedan, which have been terrific products by the Indian company, as the demands are becoming low because they are aging and thus getting phased out of production in India.
Management for passenger cars at Tata said the Tata Vista and Manza will be discontinued. SIAM also confirms the fact that not a single unit of the Manza and the Indigo have been sold in the passenger car market since July 2015. This allows Tata to overhaul its entire portfolio of passenger vehicles with new products.
The Tata Indica and the Indigo eCS are now available only for commercial applications. The Indica continues to be offered in diesel and CNG variants. The Indigo will aslo be available solely for commercial uses.
The Indian company now has bigger plans to gain market share. After product strategy is almost done for the next 3-4 years, Tata now plans to triple its dealership network across the country within a few years from now on. Mayank Pareek, Tata Motors’ President of Passenger car market said that they will be launching only two new products between now and the year 2020.
To give you an idea, the next product to be launched from Tata is the Zica and the other one following will be its compact sedan version, most probably named Sway. After that we can expect the Tata Nexon compact SUV and the Tata Hexa to join the fleet. Tata Motors is set to finally get its game right in the passenger car market as the competition gets really tough from the likes of all the manufacturers, even in the compact car segment.
