Tata to launch Range Rovers, Discovery 3 in India soon
Tata Motors official, Premier Car Division Head, Rohit Suri, in a statement informed that they will start selling the 2010 models of the Range Land Rover, Range Land Rover Sport and the Land Rover Discovery 3 with some added Indian feature upgrades from November onwards. They already sells the Range Rover and Range Rover Sport in India. He said the company will stop selling Land Rover Discovery 3 and upgrade the same model to Discovery 4 with some variations. While the company has already started taking bookings for these models, the specific upgrades in features would be announced at an appropriate time, he added.
Tata Motors has launched a sports utility vehicle (SUV) called the Freelander 2 today. The Freelander 2 will be sold in three variants -- S, SE, HSE -- ranging from Rs. 33.8 lakh to Rs. 45 lakh. Tata Motors also plans to open more showroom in Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Pune and Ludhiana in the first quarter of 2010, company's President (Passengers Cars) Rajiv Dube, said.
He sees India as a superb market and thus will play a significant role (for JLR) in the foreseeable future provided the duty structure changes and also as consumers look increasingly toward lifestyle vehicles. Though initial volumes from India are not expected to be large. On competition to the Jaguar, Land Rover models, Dube said that,Land Rover, as a thorough-bred SUV, had only German vehicles as rivals. But feature-to-feature, I don't think there is wholesome competition to JLR.
