Even TATA has relaunched new Indica Vista ADs on TV. Is TATA being too jealous so as not to make it popular?

Shame on you TATA-FIAT! Wake up FIAT!

The Website doesn't even tells you that the GP is "Coming Soon"

Sigh!!

Are they still in 2 minds whether to launch in June or not?

Great! Looks like TATA-FIAT read my post

They are following similarly in the lines of Linea launch!

Well it only says watch this space in June, does not necessarily have to mean it will be launched in June, can be July as well.

Yeah. Would be great if it's launched soon. And I hope FIAT sets up its own network atleast now. Their cars sure don't deserve the step-motherly treatment meted out to them by TATA.

I would too but it's just that there has been no news from anyone in a very long time.
I'm really keen on the diesel and will buy it almost definitely, just sort of freaked out when I heard about the delay.
Good of fiat to put up that, wish they'd give a date though.

Am waiting for diesel as well and as far as the experience with our esteemed scoopers go on T-bhp - the news they give is 99% correct so be assured june it is.
Like Linea teaser for GP has started, show me the car fast

Thumbs up small update from the horses mouth

Hitched a ride with my neighbor who is a marketing guy in Tata since my cars out on service . I asked him round about questions on all the cars :

1. Punto -- launched in June second week. Dealer staff trained. Car already under production. He had been to the Ranjangaon plant where they were trained on the car. He has been to Ahmednagar and back on the GP 2 weeks back. Will have probably same lineage as the Linea and similar number of variants and specs.

2. Indigo sedan -- launch postponed to Oct 09 -- will be launched just before diwali. This is to give sometime to GP and linea to consolidate their space in the market. I was keen on replacing my current indigo with either new one or linea . new Indigo to have similar type of engine lineup as Vista and far more features than current gen indigo. Indigo XL to be discontinued. Indigo CS will go the Vista way only next year.

3. Grande -- could go under the scalpel. It has not been received well in the market and they want to reposition it against the Xylo to compete price and features.

4. Safari -- Doing well. No upgrades expected this year. New model launch still a hush hush affair. No details divulged.

@kpbhatt : Thanks a lot for sharing this information, did you mean that a CS version of the Vista is in the pipe line for launch in 2010 ?

I only hope it was designed from scratch and not reduced from Indigo Vista

My father's agreed to the pricing of the emotion + diesel. I just can't wait any longer.
@kpbhatt- 2nd week? that's so far away!
Did your friend say anything about the performance of the car ?
I'm sure you must have asked him something
