Tata Motors has just put out a teaser of a new C-Segment sedan concept that it will showcase at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, one of the most prestigious auto exhibitions of the world. The new car will use Tata Motors’ Impact 2.0 design philosophy and will be based on the car maker’s Advanced Modular Platform. It will be Tata’s second car to be based on AMP after the H5X premium hatchback. The teaser reveals little and we’ll have to wait until the 6th of March, when Tata shows this car at the Geneva Motor Show.
The last full-sized sedan that Tata Motors sold in India was the Manza, which was discontinued a few years ago on account of poor sales. Although the Manza didn’t sell well, it was highly regarded for its roomy interiors. The new Tata sedan could also be a very spacious product, but now with a cutting edge design, powerful engines and also top notch interiors. With the Tiago, Tigor, Hexa and Nexon, Tata Motors has shown the market that it can produce top quality cars with feature-rich interiors, sharp design and attractive price tags.
The past two concept cars from Tata – the H5X and the 45X – have previewed the Impact 2.0 design philosophy, raising the profile of the company among a lot of people in India. Both the H5X compact SUV and the 45X premium hatchback will go into production next year. The sedan showcased at Geneva is expected to arrive into India a year later, during 2020. Tata Motors has already confirmed that the AMP architecture will spawn a premium hatchback, sedan, MPV and even a crossover. The sedan to be showcased at Geneva is proof that Tata is moving very quickly to become a force to reckon with in India. If you’re a Tata fan, it’s really an interesting time to be living in.
