Tata Motors, Mahindra provide Indian spark to Geneva Motor Show
Posted on 6th March 2019
The 89th version of the Geneva International Motor Show is finally here. The 11-day event, which opens to the general public on Thursday, will showcase expensive luxury cars and supercars. One of the oldest motor shows in the world, it will witness this year a host of electric vehicles and electric concepts, which will set the tempo for brands in the future.

Leading the pack for India are Tata Motors and Mahindra & Mahindra. Tata Motors on Tuesday unveiled four products, including the premium hatchback Altroz and a concept version of the small SUV H2X, at a media briefing here. The company took curtains off an electric version of the Altroz hatchback as well, which it plans to launch next year.

Luxury electric vehicles brand Automobili Pininfarina, part of the Mahindra group, unveiled its luxury electric vehicle Battista, which is touted to be faster than a current Formula 1 race car in its 0-100 km/hr sub-two second sprint. When it arrives in 2020, the Battista will be the most powerful car ever designed. It has the potential to accelerate to 62 mph in less than two seconds, faster than a Formula 1 car, and break the 250 mph top speed barrier all with a potential zero emissions range of over 300 miles, the company said.

Tata Motors also showcased a second SUV from its optimal modular efficient global advanced (OMEGA) platform called the Buzzard Geneva edition, a seven-seater SUV. The name of the vehicle is yet to be finalised for the Indian market.

It also revealed Buzzard Sport (known as Harrier in India) during the unveiling, which was attended by Tata Group Chairman Emeritus Ratan Tata and Group Chairman N Chandrasekaran.

All the products are based on the company's OMEGA and agile light advanced architecture (ALFA), which are expected to hit road over the next two years. “All these global products are based on the two new architecture strategy. We are confident that they will be game changers in their own spheres and will reiterate our commitment to offer aspirational products,” said Guenter Butschek, Tata Motors MD & CEO.
