Tata Motors Tiago has crossed a new milestone with the company manufacturing 10000 units since it commercial launch in April. The Tiago hatch is one of the best looking car in the segment but has not tested success the car deserves. The Tiago has a lot more potential and should ideally sell 10,000 units a month.
So far Tata has received over 20,000 bookings for the Tiago about 70% for the petrol version. The Indian car maker has been cautious and plans to ramp up production slowly to match demand.
The Tiago has managed to sell about 7500 units since its launch in April.
The Tiago was launched at INR 3.2-4.75 lakhs for the petrol and INR 3.94-5.54 lakhs for the diesel (both ex-Showroom, New Delhi). The car is available in 5 variants – XB, XE, XM, XT & XZ with optional variants in XE, XM & XT.
The petrol variant is powered by an 1.2-litre three-cylinder Revotron engine that produces 85 PS and 114 Nm, while the diesel variant packs a 1.05-litre three-cylinder Revotorq engine with 70 PS and 140 Nm. Both engines are paired to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The petrol and diesel variants are capable of averaging an ARAI-certified fuel mileage of 23.84 km/L and 27.28 km/L, respectively.
The Tiago compete with the likes of Maruti Suzuki Celerio, WagonR, Hyundai i10, Chevrolet Beat and Datsun Go.
Tata Motors may consider launching an AMT version of the Tiago in the future as the demand for automatic cars has seen sharp increase.
