Tata Motors launched their much-awaited five-seater Harrier SUV in the Indian market on January 2019. Bookings for the Tata Harrier had however begun earlier and is now said to have already crossed the 10,000 mark.
According to reports, the waiting period for the Tata Harrier is now four months.

Tata is currently said to be working on an automatic transmission for he Harrier as well. This is said to debut on the upcoming seven-seater Harrier-based SUV, likely to called the 'Cassini'.
The seven-seater Harrier-based SUV was showcased in its production-spec version at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show as the 'Buzzard'. The Tata Cassini SUV will be the flagship model from the Tata brand in the Indian market and will also feature the same 2.0-litre diesel engine. It will however be tuned to produce a higher power output of 170bhp.
