Absolutely what I feel. Why would any reputable company postpone a live feed by 30 minutes.
By the way another opinion, is it another FCA gremlin? Creeping up onto us even us before the launch!!

Was their live feed not working somehow?

Scheduled for 12:30pm as per latest update. I guess they are having spares availability issues already.

We forget that even FCA officials launching an offroader has to wade through the Indian traffic for a launch event. I wont infer anything from the delay. Its after all India Standard Time they are follow and 30 minutes is nothing.

Btw, Top Gear poll is now in favour of 15-22L price range.
All they need to do is to launch the car at a no loss price point, make it a blockbuster hit and then increase the prices gradually. This is the best strategy for a company that isn't sure about the right price of its product and worked pretty well for Ecosport and XUV5OO afaik. Just couldn't understand why FCA is breaking its head instead of blindly following this proven methodology.

The amount of excitement in this thread is thrilling! I just wish that we could have gotten the TBHP review out before the price announcement so that the judgements could be more balanced. Now it is highly likely that the TBHP judgements will be driven largely by the price and may be a disappointment for many, unless FCA pulls a rabbit out of the hat!

Now it's upto 1900 and the interest is overwhelming!

Please just get the suspense out of the way.

By the way if it was my opinion, the new commercial is a bit offensive, monsters coming before God's when it comes to describing India!! Do they not know India!

I think I just saw 6-airbags are optional on lower variants also, other than being standard on the top variant.

Awesome pricing.
