Here's a list of highly anticipated models that are to enter our market shortly. There is no official announcement, but the following models are expected to be launched before Diwali in India. So, without further ado, let's quickly go through the specs, features, and other information of the upcoming models by Tata Motors.
Updated Tata Safari & Harrier
Tata Motors will likely launch the updated Harrier and Safari by March 2023 in India. Additionally, the carmaker has plans to introduce the new Tata Harrier and Safari Red Dark Editions, showcased at the 2023 Auto Expo. Inside, the Safari Dark Edition will have a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, a 7-inch digital TFT instrument console, a powered co-driver seat with boss mode, ventilated captain seats in both rows, a 360-degree surround view system, a 6-way electrically adjustable driver seat with Memory & Welcome function, etc. Meanwhile, the Harrier Red Dark Edition will get wireless charging, C-type connectors, ventilated driver and passenger seats, and more. Most of the upcoming Harrier's interior is similar to that of the Safari Red Edition.
Mechanically, the new Red Dark versions will be powered by a 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine, capable of making 170bhp, paired with a 6MT or 6AT transmission. The upcoming SUVs will come with ADAS technology, including High Beam Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Warning, Rear Collision Warning, Blind Spot Detection, Traffic Sign Recognition, and Autonomous Emergency Braking. However, the upcoming models will not get adaptive cruise control.
Tata Tiago EV Blitz
The Tata Tiago EV Blitz will reportedly make its entry to India soon. It is a sportier-looking version of the standard electric Tiago. The vehicle will have a gloss black finish with Y-shaped motifs in the air dam, along with an all-black trim in the closed-off grille and under the headlights. The rear spoiler, ORVMs, and wheel arches will also have a gloss-black finish. The front grille, front doors, and tailgate will have the Tiago EV Blitz lettering.
The carmaker has not revealed details about the chassis and power of the upcoming version. Whether it will get more features than the standard model is something only time will tell. The Standard Tiago electric variant offers two powertrain options – a large battery pack, producing 74bhp and 114Nm, and a small battery pack, delivering 61bhp and 110Nm.
