Made-in-India Tata Hexa is now ‘official SUV’ for Bangladesh Army

tata-hexa-bangladesh-army-featured-1.jpg


Tata Motors has got a new contract from one of our neighbouring country Bangladesh, to supply Hexa SUV to be used as their official Army vehicle. What this means is, a made-in-India vehicle is now the official SUV of the Bangladesh army.

Hexa-Bangladesh-Army-1.jpg


Tata Motors had to conduct vigorous testing on the Hexa for months before getting an approval from the Bangladesh Army. Tata received an order for 200 Hexa from the Bangladesh Army once Hexa fulfilled the conditions for the Army. This is the statement issued by the manufacturer,

This order has been won against the other competitive brand SUVs and this has been the first key order from the Bangladesh Army. The superior performance of the Tata Hexa, better comfort features and widely available service and spares in Bangladesh made it the most preferred brand for the army

Hexa-Bangladesh-Army-2.jpg


The Military will be getting the 4×4 version which only comes with a manual gearbox. The Hexa is powered by a 2.2 litre turbocharged diesel engine. The engine generates a maximum of 154 Bhp and 400 Nm of peak torque. The same engine and gearbox will be made available to the Bangladesh Army as well.

Tata Motors’ JV partner in China, Chery to launch eQ5 electric SUV

chery-eq5-electric-suv-china-tata-launch-8.jpg


Chery, Tata Motors’ joint venture partner which manufactures Jaguar Land Rover products for the Chinese market, is all set to introduce its first fully electric SUV, the eQ5, in its home. The compact electric crossover is based on Chery’s all-new aluminium-intensive lightweight platform which will spawn a range of EVs in the near future.

chery-eq5-electric-suv-china-tata-launch-6.jpg


The Chery eQ5 is powered by a permanent magnet synchronous motor (PMSM) which is available in two states of tune – 163 hp and 177 hp. The motor is supported by a lithium-ion battery pack which claimed to deliver a range of 510 km under NEDC. The battery is claimed to have an impressive energy density of 160.1 Wh/kg.

chery-eq5-electric-suv-china-tata-launch-5.jpg


The crossover’s monocoque is composed of 93% of aluminium-magnesium alloy which results in 40% weight reduction compared to traditional steel frames. The frame weights a paltry 95 kg. Thanks to this feature, the eQ5 weighs 1,760 kg which is impressive given the size of its battery pack.

The Chery eQ5 sports a modern dual-tone interior with flat-bottomed steering wheel, fully digital color instrument console and of course, a touchscreen infotainment system. Salient features include AI voice recognition, air purification system, 5G connectivity, over-the-air (OTA) updates and a suite of Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) features.

Tata needs to come clear on the Hexa in India. What I understand is that the AWD Safari version of the Hexa is a certainty.

But will they continue with the RWD version also with BSVI engine. Reason they might bring on the RWD is as the 2.2 ltr varicor engine which they have promised for the Safari version is not going to be manufactured for this model only. Seems it does not make commercial justification. Reason they might not bring it on is because if they bring out the RWD Hexa then it will directly rival the Gravitas and can cannibalise its own product.

Tata Motors Purchases 50% Share Of Jayem Automotives In JTSV Joint Venture


Tata Motors today announced that it has signed an agreement to purchase the 50 per cent shareholding of Jayem Automotives in JT Special Vehicles Pvt. Ltd. (JTSV). Further to this announcement, JTSV will become a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Motors, following the completion of the procedural requirements. This does mean that cars under the JTP brand will no longer be sold in India.


JTSV was formed in 2017 as a 50:50 joint venture between Tata Motors Ltd. and Jayem Automotives to develop high performance versions of the company's passenger cars under the 'JTP' brand. The company then launched the Tiago JTP and the Tigor JTP in 2018. Both the Tiago and Tigor JTP get cosmetic updates to make it look a bit more sporty and yes the performance too had been uprated in both cars. We told you in our review that the Tiago JTP, that it is a hot hatch to buy in the country and yes, the most affordable one at that. However, the passenger car industry witnessed a challenging FY19-20, exacerbated with mandatory change in regulations and the current COVID-19 pandemic, which has impacted the demand in this niche category of vehicles.

7mg_tata-launches-connected-fleet-management-platform-for-commercial-vehicles_625x300_14_July_20.jpg

Tata Motor has launched a new digital fleet management platform for commercial vehicles called Fleet Edge. The new connected vehicle solution is capable of processing a large amount of data generated by the Telematics Control Unit (TCU) and offers real-time insights for track and trace, vehicle health, driving behaviour, real-time fuel efficiency and fuel loss alert. The company has been offering factory-fitted telematics units with its medium and heavy commercial vehicles since 2012, and currently over 2 lakh Tata CVs.


The new Fleet Edge connected fleet management system will allow customers to manage their fleet even more efficiently through a user-friendly interface, which can be accessed on smartphones via an app, on a real-time basis. The system also allows fleet owners to track the due date of the important vehicle documents. Tata says that the Fleet Edge solution is relevant and beneficial across fleet size and is available with the entire M&HCV BS6 range of trucks and buses and a select range of I&LCV and SCV models.

Tata Records 43% Sales Increase In July 2020; Finishes Third

tata-motors-cars-1-4.jpg

Tata Motors endured an encouraging outing last month as 15,000 units were sold domestically. When compared to the same period in 2019, the homegrown manufacturer posted 4,515 units more and it led to a Year-on-Year sales increase of 43 per cent. Tata registered the second highest volume increase in July 2020 and finished third in the overall manufacturers’ table behind Maruti Suzuki and Hyundai.

tata-motors-cars-1-9-1068x641.jpg
The brand’s market share also increased to 7.6 per cent as compared to 5.3 per cent in July 2019. The Month-on-Month sales growth stood at a highly respectable 31 per cent as well. Tata begun the year of 2020 with a slew of new launches as the facelifted Tiago, Tigor and Nexon came to the fore while the all-new Altroz entered the B2 hatchback segment with plenty of promises.

Additionally, Tata also introduced the electrified Nexon and MY2020 Harrier with updates. The company’s intention to have a refreshed lineup in short intervals does appear to be paying dividends. Tata ended up third ahead of Mahindra, Kia, Renault, Toyota, Honda, Ford, MG and Volkswagen. Compared to its nearest finisher M&M, Tata garnered 4,000 more units.

tata-4999-tiago-2.jpg

The automotive industry has made a steady progress in July 2020 as 1,97,523 units were recorded with just 1 per cent volume de-growth and compared to the previous month of June, the volumes catapulted by a massive 69 per cent. With the festive season just around the corner, the passenger car sales will more likely increase further.

Tata has a host of new products up its sleeve as the three-row Harrier dubbed the Gravitas is expected to go on sale around November. Originally intended to be introduced this month, the health crisis has pushed its launch back while the second product based on the ALFA (Agile Light Flexible Advanced) platform could also arrive in the near future.

It is nothing but the production version of the HBX/H2X concept showcased at the 2020 Auto Expo and it will go up against Maruti Suzuki S-Presso and Renault Kwid. The Gravitas will take on MH Hector Plus, upcoming seven-seater Hyundai Creta and next-gen Mahindra XUV500 bound for 2021.

With just 5 models, TATA has pulled out a rabbit out of the hat!
With good reviews from buyers on YouTube and social media, the brand is getting a new traction where young and first time buyers hugging their cars, I seems TATA has got a new lease of life. Nationality seems to be playing some part.

With more models like HBX, GRAVITAS, et al., soon join the line up, we will be watching more numbers to the brand.

Kudos to the brand TATA!

This purifier can easily fit in the cup holder slot of all Tata cars.
