As emissions regulations keep getting stricter, no carmaker can rest easy. Tata, the leader in selling electric vehicles in India, has showcased its new family of turbo-petrol engines at the 2023 Auto Expo to keep itself in strong contention for the foreseeable future.

What Do We Know About Them?

The new members of Tata’s powertrain family are a pair of Turbocharged Gasoline Direct Injection (TGDi) engines: a 1.2-litre unit and the other a 1.5-litre engine. Here’s a look at their specs:

1.5-litre, four-cylinder turbo-petrol







Tata has clearly stated that these engines are compliant with the upcoming BS6 Phase 2 emission norms and can run on E20 fuel as well, i.e., these motors will also run on a petrol blend comprising 20 per cent ethanol. Mohan Savarkar, Product Line Vice President at Tata Motors, has hinted that these new turbo-petrol engines could be offered with a dual-clutch transmission (DCT).

Potential Contenders For These Powertrains

Tata will introduce the 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine on the Curvv ICE in 2024, which debuted in concept form at Auto Expo 2023. Following which, the same engine could replace the current 1.2-litre turbo-petrol engine offered in the Nexon and Altroz.

Meanwhile, the larger 1.5-litre turbocharged unit could find its way into Tata’s flagship range of SUVs that consists of the Harrier and Safari for now, while a couple of new SUVs are scheduled to arrive in the coming years.
