In addition to product showcases, the Tata Motors pavilion at Auto Expo 2020 has been conceptualised and designed to provide visitors with an interactive experience. With the help of an engaging digital interface, customers visiting the hall will indulge in games and stand a chance to win an exciting experience. As part of its sustainability mission, the company has also taken steps like going paperless and increased the green cover at the pavilion. Keeping the growing start-up culture in mind, Tata Motors will use this platform to also crowdsource and engage with the start-up communities.
For the BSVI transition, the company’s state-of-the-art ‘Advance Power Systems Engineering Tech Center’ at its Engineering Research Center (ERC) Pune, has played a key role in engineering, testing and developing powertrain solutions for its product portfolio, including comprehensive electrification. Rather than limiting the scope to only emission migration, the company has streamlined its portfolio with enhanced features, offering enhanced performance and added value enhancers for the benefit of the customers. The company is ready with its entire range of drivetrain combinations, including gasoline, diesel & CNG engines with manual, automatic and automated-manual transmissions for BSVI emission norms.
Talking about the transition, Mr Rajendra Petkar, President & CTO, Tata Motors said, “The Tata Motors team has tirelessly worked towards a seamless transition to the BSVI regime. With the customer at the centre of our plans, we have designed & engineered our products keeping in mind the duty cycles and growing aspirations. From January 2020 onwards we will be introducing over 100 lead models with over 1000 variants. These will cover options of powertrain combinations, body styles, chassis configurations plus technologies imbibing connected, electric, shared and safety. Significant front loading of activities, use of digital product development tools and early involvement of globally reputed technology & supplier partners has helped us to accelerate the portfolio migration.”
