Tata Motors would have put in Rs 2,500 crore in BS-VI technology, which is its largest investment in vehicle development, said people in the know.
Tata Motors is planning to make a rationalised portfolio of products as Bharat Stage VI emission norms will come into existence by April 2020.
India’s leading automobile brand plans to introduce 400 new product programmes and 1,000 variants in the coming April, removing 120-140 models from its current portfolio. The removal of some models will ensure a quicker time to market and lower costs. However, this would also mean a high ticket price.
The majority of upgrades are on the commercial vehicle segment, where different types of engines and body styles are created to suit the needs of the customer.
Upgrades are happening in the Iris 0.5 tonne van, 55-tonne trucks, buses, Tiago and Harrier SUV, with 40 different combinations of engine and transmission. This will happen in the CNG, petrol, LPG and diesel engines that come with manual, automatic and automated manual transmission. Tata Motors would have put in Rs 2,500 crore in BS-VI technology, which is its largest investment in vehicle development, said people in the know.
Rajendra Petkar, chief technology officer, Tata Motors said that the company has removed the vehicle combinations that were not important to keep in the portfolio. The brand has cut down the variants of the products by 15-20 per cent as a step towards a rational product portfolio. In engines as well, the company would cut down 25-30 per cent as base engine level. Tata Motors said that all its engines are BS-VI compliant. The brand is just waiting to get a formal certification. The brand has already received approval for more than 80 per cent of its engines from the certification agencies. More than 90 vehicle combinations have been certified.
