Tata Motors planning two premium SUVs loaded with Jaguar Land Rover technology

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 27, 2014

Ok, we have to admit that we saw this coming! According to the latest reports from a Delhi-based newspaper, Tata Motors is working on two new upscale SUVs that will use technology developed by Jaguar Land Rover. Set to arrive in 2017, the five- and the seven-seater SUVs will be sold not only in India, but also in Gulf Cooperation Council countries and South-East Asia.

The company aims to sell 80,000 SUVs and the vehicles will be a fresh addition in the lineup after the Aria crossover proved to be a failure. Tata Motors sold only 376 units of the Aria last year, while a year before 927 units left the dealerships.

Codenamed Q501 (five-seater SUV) and Q502 (seven-seater SUV), the vehicles are part of a long product pipeline till 2020. Still, the vehicles will be an interesting addition taking in consideration that both will be positioned as premium cars with a price range of $20,000 to $31,000. [source: livemint.com]
