Tata Motors wants to quickly fill gaps in the Jaguar and Land Rover lineups

Tata Motors CEO Carl-Peter Forster wants to quickly fill the gaps in the Jaguar and Land Rover lineups, according to a report from Automobilwoche, a German sister publication of Automotive News.

During the interview, Forster said that Tata wants to nearly double its vehicle selection in the next few years. Tata Motors is the parent company for the two brands.

Forster, who was formerly the head of General Motors in Europe, started working at Tata last February.

Recently, Forster and Ralf Speth (the new Land Rover and Jaguar chief) took inventory of the brands. Forster said Tata is planning a replacement for the old Land Rover Defender.

The current version is not available in the US. The successors to the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport are expected to be much lighter as Forster has said that drastic weight reduction is a key goal in their development.

Last week, Land Rover displayed a new small SUV, the two-door Range Rover Evoque, which starts selling in the US in the fall of 2011.

At 165 inches long, the Evoque is considered to be the smallest, most fuel-efficient vehicle in the lineup. It will be offered as a hybrid and without all-wheel drive, if the buyer prefers. The Evoque will be priced from $50,000.
