Ready for the new portfolio transition
BS-VI transition has been the single largest focus area for Tata Motors. It established a state-of-the-art ‘Advance Power Systems Engineering Tech Center’ at its Engineering Research Center (ERC), Pune, which has played a key role in engineering, testing and developing cutting-edge powertrain solutions for its product portfolio, including comprehensive electrification.
Rather than limiting the scope to only emission migration, the company has streamlined its portfolio with enhanced features, offering superior performance and added value enhancers for the benefit of the customers.
The deployment of modular product architecture across its vehicle platforms has ensured a higher commonisation of parts, quicker time to market and lower costs for its vast range of offerings. The company is ready with its entire range of drivetrain combinations, including gasoline, diesel & CNG engines with manual, automatic and automated-manual transmissions for BS-VI emission norms.
Mr. Rajendra Petkar, President & CTO, Tata Motors, said: “The Tata Motors team has tirelessly worked towards a seamless transition to the BS-VI regime. With the customer at the centre of our plans, we have designed & engineered our products keeping in mind the duty cycles and growing aspirations. From January 2020 onwards we will be introducing over 100 lead models with over 1,000 variants. These will cover options of powertrain combinations, body styles, chassis configurations plus technologies imbibing connected, electric, shared and safety. Significant front loading of activities, use of digital product development tools and early involvement of globally reputed technology & supplier partners has helped us to accelerate the portfolio migration.”
