Everyone knows that the new owner of the renowned brands Jaguar and Land Rover is an Indian manufacturer that specializes in commercial vehicles. Now, we have been talking a lot about the upcoming motor show and it showcasing exciting products from many popular car manufacturers. Among the crowd of supercars, luxury cars, et al will be the humble Tata Motors.
Tata showcased the Manza hybrid and Safari Storme at the Indian Auto Expo last month. Back at the Expo, Mr. P.M. Telang, Managing Director – India Operations, had said, “With the Safari Storme, the iconic Safari becomes a contemporary SUV suited to the desires of today’s SUV lovers.” He had also said, “As importantly, we are displaying our progress with alternate fuel technologies towards a more comprehensive portfolio for the future.”. Now, these two will make their European debut at the Geneva Motor Show. The Manza Hybrid concept puts to use a hybrid powerplant coupled with a diesel motor. Talking about the Safari Strome, it may noted that the Storme shares quite a lot with the Aria crossover and Tata is surely hoping to get some image makeover by coming up with this worldclass product. Some time back, we talked about Tata’s future plan to use next gen Aria’s components in entry level Land Rover vehicles.
