Tata Motors registers 3 models with Indonesia Government
We all know that the Indian car market is going through a tough phase, and the carmakers are searching for different measures to overcome the slowdown. Tata Motors aims to expand its footprints in the global markets, and has registered the Indica, Vista and the Safari Storme sports utility vehicle with the Indonesian Government. The registered vehicles - the Vista and the Indica both are the top of the line petrol variants, while the Safari Storme is the 2-wheel drive mid EX variant.
The report published on Kompas Otomotif said that the registration of these models, does not mean that the company is going to sell its vehicles. For instance, the registration is for the feasibility test of the products in Indonesia. Tata Motors first entered in the Indonesian market via its fully owned subsidiary, PT Tata, in September last year. The company is focusing more on establishing themselves in the market and setting up its network across the country. Moreover, it also plans to assemble vehicles locally via the CKD (completely Knocked Down) route.
It is also speculated that the petrol Vista would be the first product from the Tata stable to be launched at the IIMS 2013 this September. The car will compete against the likes of Honda Brio, Nissan Micra and the Suzuki Ritz.
