So Tata Motors will have only two passenger vehicle platforms in the future - a highly versatile, modular monocoque platform (AMP) and another Land Rover derived platform for more expensive vehicles.

I hope they gracefully retire the old platforms soon, beginning with the Indi__ platform, followed by that of the (even older) Sumo.

As long as Tata continue to flog such old products like Indica & Indigo, their new (& much improved!) breed of products beginning with the Zest will have to deal with an image issue. It's better to gracefully retire the old products right now.

I dislike getting an Indi-ca/go assigned through Uber or Ola, but would enjoy getting a Bolt or Zest instead!

At Tata Motors, Butschek’s first angle of attack is to address top line growth — not just bring in more products but bring them faster to market.

The second angle is to bring about agile cost management, which essentially will entitle structural improvements and a modular bill of material that can shave costs by using common components across the two modular platforms.

The third angle is to bring in customer centricity, something that Tata Motors woefully lacks.

The fourth is to make sure that the processes and products are done right the very first time.

The fifth initiative is setting up of a core team that will look at discontinuity, disruption in the market place, new mobility solutions and new business models.

And the last angle of attack is organisational effectiveness, which would mean adding speed, simplicity and agility to the organisation.

According to CNBC TV18, Tata Motors is mulling to relocate part of its mid-level executives to Global Development Centre. “VRS option will be given to executives who will not be absorbed in the new management structure which goes live from April 1, 2017. VRS package will be announced post-Tata Motors’ restructuring exercise completion,” sources told the channel.

Mayank Pareek, President, Passenger Vehicle Business, Tata Motors, spoke in some detail to the Hindu Business Line about the Tigor, future launches, after-sales service, expansion plans, and where Tata Motors is headed in the next 3-4 years.

Quote:
The trick in this business is that you should anticipate the game, and once you do that, you can play the game. We started conceptualising this car three years ago, and our first words to designers was ‘give me a car which is built on same platform as Tiago, but looks completely different and has a road presence when you see it from 100 metres’. And that worked.

One of our challenges was after-sales service. We worked on that and decided that if complaints comes to the head office, we will resolve those the same day. Today, decision-making of a car happens on dining tables, and a lot of research is done online, but some consumers get more confused. That is where word of mouth becomes a critical ingredient for success in this market. That is why we made our after-sales stronger so that word of mouth is generated through workshops.

The market is likely to grow by 10 per cent, and we will grow by 20 per cent plus this year. Next year, the market is expected to grow by 10 per cent again. As a company, we are covering only around 59 per cent of the Indian market and we are not present in some key segments. Going forward, we will fill these segments with our new product language and new product architecture. The product language in terms of ‘impact’ design and architecture means less number of platforms in more products. In future, we will have only two platforms, but many more products. Our play will increase from 59 per cent to near 100 per cent.

We are not in segments like compact SUV, where we will be launching one, during Diwali this year, called Nexon. We don’t have a premium hatchback and we should be there. We are not in mid-size sedan, van segment and, by 2020, we will be in more than 90 per cent of the segments. That also gives us the advantage of a growing market share, as we are working towards ‘customers for life’ and winning back consumers.

Tata sold 16475 passenger vehicles in October 2017. Just 1% up comparing to October 2016 sales.

Maruti, Toyota, and Tata are companies who could improve sales and rest of them saw declining numbers last month. I think it is mainly due to GST advancing many peoples car purchasing plans.

I am surprised the increase is only 1% that too having launched 3 new products in the last one year. One can expect Tata to be at No 4 for a while from now. But gap with Mahindra is at 7K units for october. Tata might have to wait until X451 launch for reclaiming no 3.

On a side note, sales of Tata are not increasing a lot YOY, as new vehicle sales increase, old lot are almost dead.

Finally it happened. Let's hope that they can maintain the lead. Tata Motors will become the subject of business case studies soon. The way it has transformed post 2014 has few parallels globally. Companies which become complacent usually die or get bought out. Tata invested in design and the results are for all to see. If you remove the brand logo, no one in this country would deny that the cars they are selling now are amongst the best designed ones in the respective segments.

What a stunning news this is !

Goes to show that perseverance pays !!!

Tata s at last are beginning to understand the nitty-gritty of the Indian Passenger Vehicles market & their four successive car launches have yielded them this result. Ahead of the Nexon there's this launch of the Premium Hatch followed by a mid sized sedan followed by a SUV; they have got their hands full !

Suffice to say Tata s cannot afford to sit back on their laurels & should continue to be busy. The best part of their launches is that each of their vehicles is a different creed from the other, from Hexa to Tiago to Tigor to Nexon, with a set of different engines, body structures unlike Maruti's launches with the 1.3 MJD as the central theme !

Well done Tata !!!
