Land Rover is a British based automobile manufacturer, which is owned by Indian automobile giant Tata Motors. Now both of them have decided to create two new SUVs as global products. Earlier the Indian automobile manufacturer has tried to stay away from the luxury segment.
The estimated timeline for their global SUVs is 2017. That is if everything sails smoothly till then. Tata Motors will develop and engineer the two new products with assistance from Land Rover's engineers.
It was evident that sooner or later the two automobile giants would collaborate to build a vehicle. It may have taken some time, however, it is interesting to know the two have decided to work on the SUV platform for their global products. Tata has a great SUV portfolio in India and the same goes with Land Rover.
It is also rumoured that both the new products will share parts with the present Freelander from Land Rover. The British luxury car manufacturer will help Tata Motors by providing their engines too. Land Rover will help improving the vehicles handling and performance.
It will be interesting to see if the both the new vehicles break away from its traditional design language. We expect the vehicles will be full fledged SUVs and will be big enough to accommodate five or seven individuals with available boot space in the back.
With two new SUV vehicles in the global market, Tata Motors wants to establish itself as premium vehicle manufacturer. It will be interesting to see where, the manufacturer chooses to launch its product. We can expect both the vehicles to be launched in India as Tata Motors premium and luxury offerings in the SUV segment.
