Dad gets stronger in 2020, because their sales are increasing. They recorded a 108 percent increase in 2020 compared to annual sales in 2019. The largest number of sales was recorded by Tata Altroz, which was launched only this year. It is surprising to see that the Altroz has managed to overtake even the Tata Nexon which is a compact SUV.
Tata sold 6,260 units of Altroz in November 2020. Compared to Tata, it managed to sell 6,021 units of Nexon in November 2020. This is a significant increase over the 3,437 units of Nexon sold in November 2019. That’s a 75 percent increase for Nexon. The reason for this is the Nexon facelift, which is much more attractive than the previous generation Nexon. The second SUV manufacturer Harrier 2020 also recorded a growth of over 190 percent over the previous year. Dad Harrier had only 765 units in November 19, while on November 20 he had 2,210 units.
When we compare the analysis from month to month. Tata Altroz is selling slightly less when we compare the sales number from November 20th to October 20th. In November, sales were 6,260, while in October it was 6,730. So that’s 470 units less than the previous month’s units. Tata Altroz is offered in two engine options. There is a 1.2-liter gasoline engine that produces a maximum power of 86 PS and a maximum torque of 113 Nm. Then there is the 1.5-liter diesel engine that produces 90 PS of maximum power and 200 Nm of maximum torque. Both engines come paired with a 5-speed manual transmission.
Dad will launch the EV variant of the Altroz sometime next year. It will be powered by the same powertrain found on the Nexon EV. The Altroz EV was also unveiled at Auto Expo 2020. It is expected to be powered by a 30 kWh battery that will provide a range of about 315 km on a single charge. Regenerative braking and driving modes will be on offer to help you extend your range.
Dad will also launch the Altroz with a turbocharged petrol engine that will produce 110 hp of maximum power and a maximum torque of 140 Nm. Yes, the power could be less than that offered by competitors like the Volkswagen Polo and Hyundai i20, but the Altroz also weighs just 980kg. The turbo gasoline engine is derived from a Nexon unit. Comes with a 5-speed manual transmission. The Altroz Turbo will also get a 6-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, which is currently under construction.
As for the equipment list, the Tata offers headlights for projectors, a touch information and entertainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a semi-digital instrument panel, cruise control, steering wheel controls and more. Dad Altroz only costs Rs. The former 5.44 lakh showroom for the base variant makes it the cheapest premium hatchback you can get. While the top variant costs Rs. Former showroom of 8.95 lakhs.
