We can't slap on a Tata Badge on Discover Sport that sells for 50 + Lakhs and hope to sell it from Tata Showroom. The can only use input from Landrover but no way can they afford to share the whole platform and hope to sell it at the price it will cost.

If it is near future as in the article, it can only be the Kite 5 with a few features, that TML may market as "Premium"

It definitely will be a premium positioning. Seeing the Tiago, it's absolutely clear that the Kite will be a premium CS.

Jaguar Land Rover, the British luxury vehicle unit of Tata Motors, is planning to make Land Rover SUVs in India for the local market and exports.
JLR is discussing internally and also with component vendors about the possibility of making a mini version of the Defender in India by 2019-20
Quote:
A small team of engineers has already reached out to vendors to discuss the quality and cost of components the company would likely need, and it is seeking quotation for the potential manufacturing of 50,000 units a year

What is a Mini Defender? Are they referring to the SWB 2-Door Defender? Or, is it a completely new CUV with the Defender Tag. If so, they should rename it to Befender so the it doesn't dilute the Defender History.

If they can make the current Short Wheel Base Defender in India, they can look at the armed services market in India also.

According to CAR. Land Rover are looking at a smaller SUV to slot below the Discovery Sport at a lower cost with a steel body. This must be it. Might be made in Slovakia and India

The future design language of the Safari or Q501/502 rendered here looks very interesting. Could make the car competitive against the Fortuner too!

Wow! Interesting indeed! That looks a very attractive concept. Let's hope the final product looks nearly as good.
