Tata Harrier, a highly successful car in the Indian market led to the birth of an elder sibling in the form of Gravitas. The Tata Gravitas was first showcased during the Auto Expo 2020 in February with launch date around the end of 2020. However, the pandemic has delayed all plans of Tata and we may see the car only in 2021. Find everything about Tata Gravitas launch delayed below.

Why the delay?
The COVID pandemic is one of the major delay-producing factors for this issue. Tata currently wants to focus on its present car sales. Automotive sector has taken quite a big hit due to this pandemic and everyone now is on the way forward. Tata in the current times does not want to risk its resources behind a new car. The time is also not very optimum for Gravitas and Tata has taken the right step. The whole world’s economy has been affected by the pandemic with the Indian automotive industry being no exception. The car may only be launched during 2021 and can also be shifted to 2022 in absence of vaccine.
Highlights about Gravitas
Tata Gravitas is the seven-seater version of Tata Harrier. We already have made a walkaround video on YouTube of the Auto Expo 2020 where the car was showcased first. It will be quite similar to the MG Hector Plus which was launched recently with a local touch added to it. You will get a 2.0-litre engine with this car. Tata has made this car on Land Rover’s modified platform and provided a finishing touch to it. Features like Android Auto, Apple Car Play, Climate Control are provided.
Other impressive features
Tata is known for its safety and this new car will be no exception. Airbags, ABS with EBD and many other safety features will be made available from the base variant itself. The Auto Expo model did not have a sunroof but MotorOctane promises a high possibility of panoramic sunroof in the production variant of the car. You will also get connected car technology in this car to help it stand equally against its arch-rival the Hector Plus. This car will be priced close to the Hector Plus which comes with a price tag between Rs.13.48 to Rs.18.53 lakh.
