Tata Altroz will be the production name of the Tata 45X hatchback

Published

on

By

Yes, folks, you heard it first here. We are the first to bring you this news. The production name of the upcoming Tata hatchback code-named 45x – Tata Altroz. The trademark given below is proof. Tata had recently asked fans on different forums too to guess the name of the car. The car will be Tata’s first premium hatchback offering. We expect it to come with many first in class features and many safety features.

Tata Altroz

What do you think will be the price, specs and features on this premium hatchback? Will you wait for the Altroz and not buy an i20?

Tata Altroz Launch

Launch Date August 2019

The Tata Altroz will be launched this year, August. It will be unvieled at the Geneva Motor Show in March. We had earlier reported that the car will be launched around September. We were pretty close. The car will be shown in its production avatar at the Geneva Motor Show. The car is currently undergoing rigorous tests. The pictures of the testing mule of this car have been spotted and released multiple times. Currently, the company is focusing on Harrier, Nexon, Tiago, and Tigor. The Harrier, Tigor and Tiago have their JTP versions were launched recently.

Tata Altroz side

Tata Altroz Price in India

Tata 45X Price (on-road price)
Minimum ₹6 lakhs
Maximum ₹10 lakhs

The Tata Altroz is likely to be priced between Rs 6 lakhs to Rs 10 lakhs, on-road. Tata will try and undercut the Maruti Baleno in pricing. This will give it a tremendous edge. The car will be manufactured locally. Thus, from the start, this will give it a big edge in competitive pricing. If the pricing of the Nexon is to be considered, then we can safely assume the Tata 45X is going to want a large piece of the segment. The i20, Jazz, Punto, and Baleno are a part of the premium hatchback segment and have shaped the market to their needs. Tata will have to make sure that they give the features that a customer in this segment is used to. Cars sold in this segment carry certain customer expectations and demands that need to be fulfilled by the manufacturer while being very competitively and closely priced. The Altroz is an exciting package and should be offering some good value for money.

Tata Altroz Safety 

The Tata Altroz will also be a very safe car when it will launch. The car could get 6 airbags, Traction control, ABS, EBD, ESP and other safety features like Corner Control Stability and also Pedestrian safety.

Tata Altroz Design

When it comes to styling, the Altroz follows the Impact 2.0 design language. This design language is what is to be used by Tata Motors on all its future models. This hatchback is based on the Advanced Modular Platform. This platform will underpin all kinds of vehicles from Tata Motors in the coming times. The Tata Altroz is a futuristic concept. It has sharp lines and a very aerodynamic design. Shod with a sleek front end, the windshield rakes sharply, to give it a very sporty stance. It looks dynamic even at a standstill. The whole car gives off a very athletic vibe. The spoiler looks like a continuation of the roof of the car.

Tata-45X-Premium-Hatchback-Concept

The Tata 45X gets a thin grille. It’s fitted with LED headlamps and DRLs. There is going to be a separate grille on the lower part of the front bumper. The front bumper itself looks very big and low. Flared wheel arches make it look muscular. The car is wide enough to rival the likes of Hyundai Elite i20 and Maruti Baleno. The Tata 45X has a long wheelbase. It is low slung and the engine bay is small. This gives us a sense that the cabin shall be very spacious. This is what will be its USP and what customers would like to have in a premium hatchback. The other thing if you notice is the flat bonnet will aid in visibility and make manoeuvring this car in traffic a breeze. The result will be the driver having a relaxed drive.

Tata Altroz Specifications

Engine 1.2-litre petrol 1.5-litre diesel
Power 100bhp 110bhp
Torque 160Nm 260Nm
Transmission 6-speed manual 6-speed manual

The Altroz is going to get a 1.2-litre turbo petrol engine. The diesel might be the 1.5-litre, which will be shared with the Nexon. These are the new generation engines from Tata. The engines will churn about 100-110bhp of power and will be offered with a six-speed manual and also AMT options. These will be the first set of premium hatchbacks that shall get AMT. The engines will be fuel efficient too. The six-speed gearbox will do wonders for the mileage. They might not be the best when it comes to performance, but they will offer a good package, especially at the price this car is expected to come at. It will also be cheaper and more cost effective to have an AMT unit in the car rather than a traditional automatic. This could be one of the same units as seen on the Nexon.

Tata Altroz drive

However, there is some talk about this car getting a CVT gearbox like the Hyundai i20.

Tata Altroz Competition

The Tata Altroz will be competing with the Fiat Punto, Hyundai Elite i20, Maruti Baleno and the Honda Jazz. Tata Motors is looking at enhancing its reach in this segment. What they will have to offer is the best in class, that is when it will work out. This car is expected to bring some more zing into the segment, which is veering towards SUVs. It is interesting that Tata will be making the car available.

Maruti Wagon R Electric will be under Rs 7 lakhs

Published

Wagon R electric testing

There are electric cars that one can purchase in India at this moment. But ownership is not that simple. There are still some problems like – lack of charging stations, life of the lithium-ion battery and the cost of owning one. But Maruti is planning to make the Maruti Wagon R Electric affordable with the price of this car coming around Rs 7 lakhs (On-road Mumbai) with the current subsidies in place. The car is also turning out to be more attractive with a 200km range. Sounds unreal. With this Maruti could kickstart an entire electric trend in India.

Currently, Maruti has got a fleet of electric cars on testing already. To know more about the Maruti Wagon R Electric scroll down.

New-Maruti-Wagon-R-2017-2

Maruti Wagon R Electric How Will It Work?

With it’s logistical prowess and huge network of dealers/service stations, Maruti will make the Wagon R Electric the first Indian mass produced and sold EV. The new WagonR with its electric version is slated to launch in India by 2020. The Maruti WagonR Electric will be developed in partnership with Toyota. Toyota in return will be selling the Brezza and the Balano as rebadged as a Toyota compact SUVs and hatchbacks. The Wagon R Electric will be the first Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MISL) vehicle to offer an electric power-train.

The cars testing has already begun. Maruti is making sure that this EV is ready to tackle the Indian terrain with ease. Around 50 cars are undergoing testing and are getting fine-tuned.

New Maruti Wagon R 2018

Maruti Wagon R Electric EV Facts

Now with that out of the way, we must tell you some more facts about EVs in India.

  • India is still a nation that gets 90% of its energy from non-renewable resources. EVs cannot show a ‘clean car’ image in this environment.
  • Coal plants are a major resource and generate a lot of electricity. After this comes petroleum and natural and biogas.
  • The government has announced a subsidy for EVs but has not yet drafted a law or passed it through the Ministry of Expenditure.
  • Lithium-ion batteries are not cheap. Batteries can cost up to INR 2-3 lakhs and prices seem to not go down soon in the future.
  • Buyers of EVs have a minuscule fuel cost compared to run a car with a combustion engine.
  • But the time taken to recover the money is huge.
  • Then there is the lack of infrastructure that needs to aid EVs when it comes to charging.
  • India is a big nation and range anxiety is a problem that many people will face when they want to commute long distances in their electric cars.

Maruti Wagon R 2018 rea

Maruti Wagon R Electric Design and Interiors

The car will be made with a great number of design inputs from the Maruti Wagon R. The car will get premium design touches and will be on a different level in terms of safety, features and specifications when compared to the regular or current Wagon R. There will be a more informative instrument cluster and a better infotainment setup. The car will get plush leather seats and automatic climate control.

Wagon R electric testing

Finally, with all these points and the imminent launch of EVs in the Indian market, we should make sure that before they get here the infrastructure is in place. Maruti Suzuki’s plan to launch the car in 2020 means that they obviously must have thought about these problems. The government under pressure from the NGT(National Green Tribunal) has declared that by 2030 India has to go full electric.

How much of this will materialise? Are internal combustion engines seeing their last days in India? I don’t think so. But all of this does means EVs on city streets will be a common sight in the future.

  • Practicality

Summary

The Wagon R Electric is going to be Maruti’s first electric car launched in India. It is slated to be launched in 2020.

Tata Motors is not wasting any time in getting new cars and variants to the market. The manufacturer is going to get cars like the 45X and the Harrier 7 seater next year. Before the Harrier 7 seater comes, we will get the Tata Harrier Automatic. The automatic will fulfil the demand of customers in this premium end of the market.

The current Alto will be phased out as it is now beginning to look dated. The new model will also meet the upcoming safety norms. The new model of the Maruti Alto will be a much-improved car.  The new Alto 2019 will be bigger in size and will be more spacious too. It will be more powerful, fuel efficient and a lot more feature loaded. The new look will be more appealing. The hatchback will look more urban and tougher than before. There is going to be a hint of similarity to the Ignis. Could this car be based on the Future S design show at the Auto Expo? Could the Alto be positioned as a micro SUV?

Marazzo Dashboard

The 2019 Mahindra Marazzo has been lighting the sales charts up for Mahindra in the past few months since it’s launch. The car has been seen as a major disrupter for the Maruti Ertiga, Renault Lodgy and the Honda BRV. The Marazzo offers a great combination of comfort, specs and features that make is a combination that makes it a value for money option. The AMT gearbox will be a great addition for the Marazzo. According to one publication, the AMT version will be launched next month. Now many of you must be thinking, did Mahindra not announce that it will bring the Marazzo with a torque converter unit? Yes, the speculation is that the car will be offered with an AMT gearbox right now because of the demand for an automatic transmission.

The car is rumored to be launch next month. This will be a very quick response to the demand by Mahindra. This new variant of the car comes just a few months after the launch a few months ago. The 2019 Mahindra Marazzo AMT will be followed by the petrol engine offering. The XUV300 which will be launched on the 14th of this month will come with a petrol and diesel engine.

2019 Mahindra Marazzo AMT Price

The 2019 Mahindra Marazzo AMT will come with a diesel engine. The current car’s price comes to around Rs 16.25 lakhs (On-road, Delhi). The price of the 2019 Mahindra Marazzo AMT should be slightly higher. We expect Mahindra will try and keep the car under 17 lakhs. This car will be a limited run model. The plans to have a CVT in this car are still on track and the Marazzo AMT will mostly be a one year model.

Your want for an affordable naked street fight is going to be answered by Yamaha soon. The 2019 Yamaha MT-15 will be launched next month, March 15th. This will be a great bike to consider along with the recently launched KTM Duke 125. The bike will have a modern and aggressive new design. The bike will be made with a great amount of design. With the launch of the 2019 Yamaha MT-15, the company will step into a new direction. The manufacturer only wants to focus on the performance market in India. Yamaha could not make a major dent in the commuter market and now the bikes like the MT-15 will only make sense for them.  It will be Yamaha’s first MT motorcycle to be built in India, as the other bike in the range, the MT-09, is a CBU product. The Yamaha MT-15 is basically the naked version of the popular Yamaha R15 v3.0. The new motorcycle is expected to be priced around Rs 1.2 lakh to 1.3 lakh (ex-showroom) and will compete against the new KTM 125 Duke.

2019 Yamaha MT-15 Design

Test mules of the 2019 Yamaha MT-15 have been spotted testing in India and have given us a fair bit of idea. The design of the bike is the same as the one sold in the international market. The seat is also the same, and the headlight silhouette indicates the bike gets the same LED unit as the Thai-spec bike. However, Yamaha has chosen to go with telescopic forks up front and a box-section swingarm at the rear. This has been done to keep prices in check. The one in the Thailand market gets inverted forks and an aluminum swingarm. The alloy wheels in the India-spec bike are also taken from the R15 v3.0 which is again a cost-effective measure.

The Thar triumphed over the Gypsy with its engine, capability and Maruti’s reluctance to market and sell the Gypsy. But with Maruti planning to get the Jimny to India soon and Force Motors upping the capability of the Gurkha, a New Mahindra Thar 2020 on the horizon is good for Mahindra.
