History of TATA Motors

1. Tata Motors launches its first truck in collaboration with Mercedes-Benz.

2.TATA Indica
After years of dominating the commercial vehicle market in India, Tata Motors
entered the passenger vehicle market in 1991 by launching the Tata Sierra, a multi
utility vehicle. After the launch of three more vehicles, Tata Estate (1992, a
stationwagon design based on the earlier 'TataMobile' (1989), a light commercial
vehicle), Tata Sumo (LCV, 1994) and Tata Safari (1998, India's first sports utility
vehicle). Tata launched the Indica in 1998, the first fully indigenous passenger car of
India. Though the car was initially panned by auto-analysts, the car's excellent fuel
economy, powerful engine and aggressive marketing strategy made it one of the best
selling cars in the history of the Indian automobile industry. A newer version of the
car, named Indica V2, was a major improvement over the previous version and
quickly became a mass-favourite. A badge engineered version of the car was sold in
the United Kingdom as the Rover City Rover. Tata Motors also successfully exported
large quantities of the car to South Africa.The success of Indica in many ways marked
the rise of Tata Motors.
3. TATA Brads

With the success of Tata Indica, Tata Motors aimed to increase its presence
worldwide. In 2004, it acquired the Daewoo Commercial Vehicle Company of South

In 2005, sensing the huge opportunity in the fully built bus segment, Tata Motors

includes the Rover, Daimler and Lanchester brand names Tata Motors became a major
player in the international automobile market.

NEW DELHI: Homegrown auto major Tata Motors is working on a slew
of new products, including alternate fuels, hybrids and electric vehicles,
to be launched over seven years, according to Chairman Cyrus Mistry.
Addressing shareholders in the annual report for 2012-13, Mistry also
said the company's British arm Jaguar Land Rover plans to launch eight
new or refreshed products this year, besides exploring further
opportunities in other growing markets, including Brazil, India and Saudi
"The company is working on a slew of new products, with a plan running
up to 2020; this includes appropriate focus on alternate fuels, hybrids
and electric vehicles," he said.
Tata Motors had recently announced HORIZONEXT strategy, based on
intense product focus, world-class quality and manufacturing, enriched
customer purchase experience and a consistent, robust after-sales
service, to drive growth.
"With changes in the organisation structure, the company is determined
to improve its customer understanding to better meet market needs,
and deliver products swiftly through optimised operational processes,"
Mistry said.
Looking ahead, he admitted that there are challenges but said that "the
organisation is resolved to foster a culture of customer centricity and
innovation, so that the company's products and services consistently
exceed customer expectations".
On JLR, Mistry said:"Technical innovation and engineering excellence
have stood JLR in good stead for sustained, profitable growth and the
company plans to launch eight new or refreshed products this year."

Stressing that it is a healthy and vibrant company, he said JLR is

"strongly positioned across key global markets for future growth".
He said JLR has underlined its commitment to expanding its presence
in China, a long-term strategic market where it has partnered Chery
Automobile Company and is setting up a new plant to be built at
Changshu, in Jiangshu province.
"JLR also continues to explore further opportunities in other growing
markets, including Brazil, India and Saudi Arabia," he added.
Describing FY 13 as "a challenging one for Tata Motors", he said
"despite difficult economic conditions and increasing competition, the
company retained its market leadership in commercial vehicles, on the
back of new offerings and introduction of innovative technologies".
The mini truck Ace and Magic vehicles crossed the sales mark of one
million units, achieved in seven years since these products were first
introduced in the market, he said.
Tata Motors said that while it has enhanced market share in light
commercial vehicles, it has lost market share in the medium and heavy
commercial segment due to competitive pricing pressures.
"The sales performance of the company's passenger vehicles, however,
was significantly lower as compared to expectation; rapid changes in
customer preferences along with the de-regulation of diesel pricing both
took their toll," Mistry said.
On the small car Nano, the company said it is continuing with its drive to
identify newer markets for the car. Currently it is sold in Nepal and Sri
Lanka and is also evaluating other markets in South Asia.

A new car platform, designed to help Tata

improve its global car sales, is claimed to

leapfrog VW's current MBQ technology

Tata Motors plans on going global with its future

range of vehicles and has planned its portfolio
for the next six years, according to company MD
Karl Slym.
Although the company has more success with its
commercial vehicles, Tata wants to build a family of
world-class passenger cars, which will all be based on
a new, flexible, Volkswagen Group-style architecture
dubbed the Advanced Modular Platform (AMP).
Replacing todays ageing road car lineup (which
includes the Indica hatch, the model that became the
City Rover in 2003) is a priority for the maker, which
has been suffering in the recent sharp downturn in the
Indian market.
According to a report in the Australian media, the new
platform will leapfrog what the Volkswagen Group
has already achieved. Dr Tim Leverton, Tata Motors
head of research and development, told the Sydney
Morning Herald that VW had gone through six or
seven generations of products to get where it was
today, but that Tata would go directly to a very
interesting solution.
The AMP, he said, would not only be flexible in length,
but it would also be properly flexible in width. This
extra level of flexibility should enable the AMP
platform to underpin all sizes of cars from superminis
to crossovers.
Slym told the Indian press that the planning to send

Tata international began last year and that all of the

new cars in the development pipeline are designed for
sale globally.
Tata is likely to focus on fuel efficiency, connectivity
and innovation, he said.
