Tata Motors appears to have made some significant tweaks to its portfolio of passenger vehicles in India. The company's official website has been revised, after which, certain models have been removed from the line-up, pointing towards their discontinuation.

The Safari Dicor is no longer listed on the website. A couple of Tata dealerships have also confirmed that the Dicor has been pulled off the shelves. However, the Safari Storme is still on sale and is currently responsible for keeping the 'Safari' moniker alive.

Additionally, web pages of the Indica and the Indigo eCS prompt to be under maintenance. Various earlier reports had indicated that the company is planning to discontinue the two cars owing to a lack of demand. Moreover, with the introduction of new-generation cars like the Tiago and the Tigor, the Indica and the Indigo have started to feel a lot outdated and redundant in the company's portfolio. As a result, it might be a possibility that Tata has finally decided to pull the plug on the twins.

The Tata Aria has already been silently discontinued. Tata hasn't sold a single unit of the crossover since December 2016. Now, the web page of the Tata Aria redirects to that of Tata's new flagship product - the Hexa.

This streamlining of Tata's Indian passenger vehicle portfolio appears to be in-line with its plans to limit the number of platforms being used in its range of cars to just two. Tata currently has products based on six platforms on sale in India. By limiting the number of platforms for its products, the company is aiming to enhance the economies of scale and thus offer products at competitive prices.
