Tata Motors launches eight models including CNG Nano
Tata Motors has launched eight new products across five brands to mark ‘Horizonext’, its new passenger car business strategy, at its plant in Pune. While some models get additional kit and a choice of new colours, the company has also unveiled CNG variants for the Indica, Indigo and the Nano. Horizonext is all about evolution rather than revolution. Which is why all eight products showcased at the company’s plant in Pune encompassing cars and utility vehicles, are refreshes rather than all-new products.
The Tata Indigo eCS now comes with a new powertrain, a new Feather-shift gearbox and an all new noise, vibration and harshness package. The Sumo Gold gets dual AC, bluetooth and USB connectivity. There is a new Nano with keyless entry, twin glove boxes, a four speaker music system with blutooth, USB and aux-in connectivity. The new nano also features a chrome strip on its hood and a new vent on its boot for better engine cooling. The Nano can now also be customised with personalisation kits.
The Indica is now available in a new range of colours and graphic designs. It also gets a refreshed exterior, dual path suspension set-up, multimedia entertainment options and Feather-shift gearbox with smart-shifter gear technology. Tata Motors also announced the launch of the Safari Storme Explorer edition, which is equipped with a double DIN touchsreen multimedia system, a nudge guard, door visors, explorer decals among other gear.
The CNG lineup includes the Nano (called emax), the Indica and the Indigo.
According to Tata Motors, these refreshes mark a new direction for Tata Motors. The company now wants to focus on improving existing technology and fine-tuning it to function better. Improvement in ergonomics, interior quality and features are other focus areas for Tata Motors as part of this strategy along with speed in bringing out new and improved products. The company added that it was its new mission to bring about desirable products that will make sense not just today but in the future as well.
We expect to see all the updated models as well as the CNG variants in showrooms very soon.
