In a bid to maintain its upward trajectory following a successful year in 2023, Tata Motors is gearing up to unveil three exciting additions to its lineup this year. These launches are poised to bolster the automaker's portfolio and further solidify its position in the Indian automotive market.


Nexon iCNG: Pioneering the CNG-Automatic Segment

A standout highlight is the introduction of India’s first CNG-automatic models, with the Tiago and Tigor iCNG already featuring AMTs. At the Bharat Mobility Expo, Tata unveiled the Nexon iCNG, heralding the arrival of the country’s premier factory-made turbocharged CNG-powered vehicle. Leveraging the acclaimed 1.2-litre three-cylinder turbocharged engine from the standard petrol model, the Nexon iCNG is expected to offer both manual and AMT gearbox options. Anticipated to be priced approximately Rs 1 lakh higher than its petrol counterpart, this model marks Tata’s foray into the CNG-automatic segment.

Altroz Racer: Elevating Sportiness with Enhanced Performance

Tata's Altroz Racer, poised as a direct response to the Hyundai i20 N Line, is on the brink of its launch. Recent sightings during testing confirm its features, initially showcased at the Auto Expo. Distinguishing itself from the Altroz iTurbo, the Racer boasts a 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine delivering 120hp, a 10hp increase, paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox. Sporting a vibrant dual-tone orange and black colour scheme akin to its expo prototype, the Altroz Racer comes adorned with twin racing stripes, 'Racer' badges, and a revamped grille. This model integrates new tech and safety elements, including a 10.25-inch touchscreen, ventilated front seats, a 360-degree camera, six airbags, ESC, a heads-up display, and a voice-assisted sunroof, accentuating its sporty allure.

Curvv: Anticipated Midsize SUV Offering Superior Performance

Highly anticipated is the imminent launch of Tata's midsize SUV, the Curvv, slated to debut with the Curvv EV variant. While precise technical specifications remain undisclosed, it's expected that the Curvv will leverage Tata's Gen 2 Acti.ev architecture, offering an estimated range of 450-500km on a single charge. Positioned to beat competitors like the Creta EV, Maruti eVX, and Toyota's EV, the Curvv EV is set for a festive season debut. Following this, petrol and diesel iterations are slated for production around September, with an anticipated launch in late 2024 or early 2025. The Curvv petrol variant will sport Tata’s new 125hp, 1.2-liter three-cylinder turbo engine, with manual and automatic gearbox variants. The diesel variant is expected to house the Nexon’s 1.5-liter four-cylinder diesel engine, coupled with 6-speed manual and AMT gearboxes. Moreover, an upcoming CNG-powered Curvv version adds further anticipation to Tata's diverse lineup.

As Tata Motors readies these groundbreaking models for launch, enthusiasts and industry experts alike are keenly awaiting their arrival, anticipating how these additions will shape the automotive landscape in 2024 and beyond.
