Tata Motors Designing An SUV-Coupe And Eight Seater MPV — The Blackbird Is Coming!

Tata Motors recently unveiled four new products at the Geneva Motor show 2019, showcasing flexibility of their Alfa and Omega platforms. The Tata Altroz, Altroz EV and H2X Concept feature the Alfa platform, while the Buzzard features the Omega platform.

Reports say that the automaker will use its Alfa modular platform for its future products. Measuring 4.3 meters, this architecture can be mated to different body styles and different powertrains. The Omega however, will be used for models measuring between 4.3 meters 4.8 meters, and covers a range of vehicles including five- and seven-seater SUVs, a five-seater SUV-coupe, a seven- or eight-seater MPV, and a "full size" sedan.

Tata Motors is reportedly considering the possibility of an SUV-coupe, and an eight seater MPV based on the Omega architecture.

Rajendra Petkar, Chief Technology Officer, Tata Motors, said, "The Omega Architecture is scalable and we should be able to come up with a (SUV) coupe in the time to come. Also, an eight-seater, something like an MPV, is also possible from the architecture. We're looking at its entirety in terms of the business case and what time we need to come in the market with those products."
Both these models will take Tata Motors out of the conventional SUV space. They currently offer the Nexon which has sporty cues and is a compact SUV. The new eight seater will give the Mahindra Marazzo competition, while the SUV-coupe will compete against the Hyundai Creta and the Nissan Kicks.

Both models are currently in the design phase.

Thoughts On The 8-Seater MPV And The SUV-Coupe

This will be a welcome change as far as design is concerned. A sporty design with lower roofs is something the domestic auto giant needs. Rumor has it that the SUV may be called "Blackbird". We hope Tata Motors showcases both models at the Delhi Auto Expo in 2020.
