Guys I have something to share .
As in the morning I had called Concorde motors and spoke to the s.a whatever he told me I have posted above .in the end of my conversation I had just asked him if it is possible to talk to some tata official .
Surprisingly after 2 hours I got a called from 1 gentlemen who happens to be area manager tata motors uv department . And he asked me what i wanted to know about strome or safari .
Iam just writing exact conversation I had with him on phone
Raja - sir when are you going to launch the strome .
A.M - very soon you will hear the announcement .
Raja - extremely sorry sir but we have been hearing this promises since 1 year now and it's like testing our patience . Why dosent tata motors exactly tell the date?
A.M - sir we have been told specially not to reveal any information but let me assure you the wait will be worth and you will be happy with the final product .the launching strategy and process is in final stages .
Raja - but why in 2012 you guys are giving us a bare basic model when competetion is giving so much advanced stuff in their vehicles.
A.M- whatever I know from my seniors and meetings we have I will share ,though I don't know exact details . There are significant changes in the vehicle to which was shown in auto expo . The auto expo models were for feedback and after that a lot of feedback has been taken and incorporated in the vehicle .
We are very well aware of the competetion and we have taken what the market is offering into consideration too .
The vehicle was shown 20 days back to elite coustomers and auto experts in 1 private function in south Mumbai for feedback and whatever minor changes suggested are also being considered . And JLR team too will be giving their final feedback .
Raja- wil we have double din music system and steering mounted controls ?
A.M- sir I can't reveal anything I can only say people waiting for the strome will be pleasantly surprised with the overall vehicle compared to the current safari .
Raja- what about pricing ? The s.a told me that it will be some 14 lakhs is that true ?
A.M- they don't know the pricing . But there will be a premiuim charged I can only tell you that 4x4 top strome model will be just a hair expensive then base model of aria .
Raja - so it means it will be similar to xuv w6
A.M- does the xuv w6 have 4x4 ?
Raja- but will be your quality control better in strome ?
A.M- our quality even now is better in safari compared to the competetion in similar segment . And be rest assured that you will be informed the moment strome is launched since we have everyday countless inquiries about the strome we know many have been waiting for the launch .
Raja- thanx a lot for your effort and I appreciate that you called me .
A.M - it's my pleasure .
Raja- all the best hope you give us a kick ass
