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]
