Tata Motors recently launched the five-seater Harrier SUV in the Indian market. The Tata Harrier carries a price tag starting from Rs 12.69 lakh, ex-showroom (Delhi). However, Tata had already confirmed a seven-seater model based on the Harrier. The seven-seater Tata Harrier (codenamed 'H7X') has already been spied testing on multiple occasions in India.
The Concept form of the H7X SUV will be showcased for the first time at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The new seven-seater SUV is also expected to have a new name as well. It will feature the same engine as the Harrier, however, will be tuned to produce a higher power output. The more powerful engine will also be compliant with the upcoming BS-VI emission norms. The car is expected to launch in the Indian market, during the second half of 2019.

The other product from Tata Motors will be the company's first premium hatchback offering, codenamed '45X'. The production-spec version of the hatchback will make its global debut, alongside the other two products in March.
