Tata Motors has announced a price increase for India’s entire lineup of ICE-powered (internal combustion engine) passenger vehicles. Prices will rise by 1.2 per cent, with variations depending on the model. The revised prices will take effect on February 1st, 2023. The automaker’s lineup consists of the Tiago, Altroz, Tigor, Punch, Nexon, Harrier, and Safari. It is important to remember that the Tata Nexon EV’s prices won’t change.
The carmaker attributed the price increase to ongoing “cost pressure driven by overall inflation” and additional regulatory requirements. Tata claims in an official statement that “the firm makes maximum efforts to cut costs and partially offset the increase, it has become important to pass on some of the burdens through a price hike.”
TATA MOTORS – UPCOMING LAUNCHES
The domestic carmaker will introduce CNG versions of the Punch SUV and Altroz hatchback in 2023. At the Auto Expo 2023, both models recently had their public appearance. The Tata Harrier and Safari facelifts will also be unveiled in the upcoming months. The SUVs will receive significant feature updates. The new vehicles will include the Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS), which offers safety features like lane assist, an autonomous emergency braking system, front collision detection, and traffic sign recognition.
In addition, there will be a larger, updated 10.25-inch infotainment system, a new digital instrument cluster, a 360-degree camera, ambient lighting, and an adjustable driver’s seat with memory functions. The current 2.0L turbo diesel engine, which generates 168bhp and 350Nm of torque, will power the 2023 Tata Harrier and Safari facelifts.
Tata Motors will launch several significant new products over the course of the next two years, including the Harrier EV, Curvv (a competitor to the Hyundai Creta), and Sierra (Mahindra Scorpio-N rival). Petrol and electric powertrain options will be available for the Tata Curv and Sierra SUVs. Tata’s Gen 2 (also known as Sigma) platform will serve as the foundation for all three SUVs.
