Default TATA planning New Small Car Code named X4

Came across this article. Didnt want to start a new thread as it is still at conception stage:



Tata Motors is planning a new platform for a compact car codenamed X4. The idea is "purely at an exploratory stage" right now but indications are that the company is keen to take it forward quickly.

There are reports doing the rounds that the car could be sandwiched between the Nano and Indica in terms of pricing which could mean a product in the Rs 2.5-3 lakh bracket. It will take a good 36 months before it is out on the roads by which time the Nano could be doing over 600,000 units annually

Default Xeta LPG has sequential injection system

The new Xeta LPG comes with a 1.2 litre MPFI engine with two ECUs (Electronic Control Units) in master-slave configuration. It generates a maximum power of 65.3 PS @ 5000 rpm with petrol and an equally peppy 62 PS @ 5000 rpm with LPG. The peak torque of 102Nm @2600 rpm ensures a smooth drive in city conditions. The engine meets BSIII emission norms, but can be upgraded to meet Euro IV norms.

The new Xeta dual-fuel LPG ensures a smooth transition between the two fuel modes, even on the move. The electronically controlled gas MPFI sequential injection system provides significant safety, performance and emission related advantages over competitive offerings.

The Xeta LPG will initially be launched in two variants -- GLE and GLS. The Xeta LPG GLE variant (which comes with AC) is priced at Rs. 3.27 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi), while the Xeta LPG GLS variant (which comes with AC, power steering, and body colored bumpers) is priced at Rs. 3.42 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). The Xeta LPG variants will be available in a range of five attractive color options, at select showrooms across the country.

A little surprised to see that they have installed the sequential injection system which is supposed to be better than the closed/open loop system that we usually see in cars.

Hmmm. I was so looking forward to the new Indica Launch - I think this thread will also go the Safari way - Now you see it, now you don't

Wonder what's the point of an LPG car now, especially when crude prices are touching record highs, and Oil companies are clamoring for a stop on new LPG connections.

Better Late than Never. I remember what happened to Magna/Magma that TATA was planning to Launch. It is good that TATA is exploiting the Indica platform to its fullest and showering the customer with various choices on engines and body styles.
