A plethora of upcoming vehicle launches soon to rock the Indian car market...
This year seems to be a lucrative year for the country’s car market with more than a few Upcoming Cars to be launched one after another. The list is quite long and there are Diesel Cars, SUVs and a couple of Petrol Cars as well. The SUV segment is also getting quite a few additions as the demand for these muscular vehicles have seen a surge recently. But the fate of Petrol Cars seems to be in doldrums with another hike in the fuel prices from today. What is in store for all these new entrants in the coming future that only time will tell.
Tata Safari Storme
To start with, the most anticipated launch of this year is Tata Safari Storme; an SUV from the formidable stables of Tata Motors is expected to be priced around Rs. 10 lakh approximately. According to a few Tata Safari Storme Reviews, this SUV will come equipped with a 2179cc DICOR engine that churns out 140 Bhp at 4000 Rpm along with 320 Nm of torque at 1700 Rpm. This engine is said to be fitted with an advanced G76 MKII, 5-Speed manual transmission gear box for smoother gear shifts. The company claims that this SUV will be able to generate a mileage between 11 to 15 Kmpl, which is quite impressive. The launch is expected to happen anytime now as the company had stated that this SUV would be launched in May or early June.
Presently there is a mad rush going on by the Indian populace to purchase only diesel engine based cars and the petrol cars are being shunned like anything. The buyers are not realizing the after effects of this frenzied buying of diesel cars in India. At the same time, the Indian government isn't taking any concrete steps towards easing out this deadlock and coming to a congenial solution. Since the announcement of the 2012 union budget by the Indian government there are a couple of very significant declarations that were made. One of them was from the country’s petroleum minister and he stated that there will be no potential deregulation of the diesel price in the country. The second declaration was from the largest car manufacturer in the country, Maruti Suzuki and they are planning to invest close to Rs. 1,700 crore in setting up a diesel engine manufacturing facility to boost the sales of their diesel cars.
