Tata Motors is developing the platform of Alfa and Omega in order to engineer twelve new cars in the coming five years for the Indian markets as per reported by Mr. Mayank Pareek, President of Tata Motors to PTI. Among the upcoming 12 four wheelers to be launched in the next five years, the sedans and the hatchback models will be developed based on the Alfa platform whereas the larger MPVs and the SUVs will be based on Omega platform. Currently, Audi, Skoda, Bentley and WW are using the MQ AO platform of the Volkswagen Group for producing their different cars.
The hatchbacks, mid sized SUV and the sedans will be produced based on the alpha and omega platform, which has been developed particularly for these segments. The Omega platform is derived from the LS550 platform noticed on the Land Rover but the Alfa platform is all new architecture. The use of the Alfa and Omega platform will cut down the development cost of the Tata Motors as they are aiming at becoming a major player in the consumer vehicle market in the next five years. Moreover, the Alfa and Omega platform will reduce the time of production as well.
The Tata motors had showcased the 45X and the H5X concepts, which were based on the Alfa and Omega platform in the Auto Expo, 2018. The Tata Motors will launch the Tata Harrier in the first quarter of the 2019. This car will be the company’s first to be based on the new architecture. The Tata Harrier will be a five seater SUV based on the Omega platform. The teaser video of the Harrier is already revealed before the official lauch and this car will be retailed through the Indica Production Line, which is being modified to support the modular construction of the Harrier.
Tata Motors will launch the Harrier based on the Omega-Arc, at an affordable cost as the car is built on affordable components and materials. The Tata Motors has sanctioned the investment of one billion dollar over a period of three years and till now it is the biggest investment by the company in the passenger vehicle segment. Tata Motors is now aiming at achieving long term success and sustainable market share.
