Auto Expo 2012: Tata Motors unveils Safari Storme
05 January 2012
Tata Motors today unveiled the Tata Safari Storme, the new generation Safari SUV, at the New Delhi Auto Expo 2012.
The company also showcased its alternate fuel technology capability by displaying four concepts – the Tata Nano CNG, the Tata Indigo Manza diesel-electric hybrid car, and the Tata Magic Iris CNG.
The Tata Motors portfolio already includes a full electric vehicle, the Tata Indica Vista Electric Vehicle.
''With the Safari Storme, the iconic Safari becomes a contemporary SUV suited to the desires of today's SUV lovers," said P M Telang, managing director, India operations.
The new generation Tata Safari Storme has new exteriors and interiors. In the front are a new grill, new projector headlamps and a 'power bulge' on the bonnet. New chrome-tipped twin exhausts, the tailgate in an all-new guise and aerodynamic spoilers distinguish the rear, with the spare tyre placed under the vehicle. Freshly designed roof-rails, ergonomical side footsteps and cladding mark the side view, completing a sportier and muscular look with a hint of the Safari Storme's adventurous character.
Luxurious beige seats matched with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, chrome highlighted gear knob, wood-accented dashboard and door trims, a new instrument cluster, chrome-lined speaker grills and inside door handles endow the interiors with opulence. The front seats with fore and aft adjustment and lumbar support make long drives a cruise, while the dual AC with separate integrated roof-mounted blower keeps the entire cabin ambient.
