Tata H5 to become first Tata car built on Land Rover Platform. First Public Appearance at Auto Expo 2018
Tata Motors plans to come up with a new SUV that will become the first-ever product based on a Land Rover platform. Currently known as the Tata H5, the upcoming Tata SUV is based on the same platform that underpins the Jaguar Land Rover Discovery Sport. The H5 will make its public debut at the Auto Expo 2018.
The Tata H5 will also mark the debut of the Impact Design 2.0 design theme. With this, the H5, which is internally known as the Q501 at Tata Motors, will become the first-ever product to showcase the company’s new-age design theme. The company will make suitable alterations to the Discovery Sport platform in order to match the characteristics of the upcoming SUV. Insiders at Tata have hinted that the aluminium bits of the JLR platform will be replaced with steel ones to ensure the SUV remains affordable. The H5 will have an all-independent suspension and will be available in 5 and 7 seater layout.

The Tata H5 will be powered by the Fiat-sourced 2.0-litre Multijet II turbo-diesel engine that will be produced at the Fiat-Tata joint facility. The motor will output roughly 140 bhp and will come mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Speculations abound that the upcoming SUV will even offer a ZF-sourced 9-speed automatic transmission. The upcoming Tata SUV will ride on 19-inch wheels shod with MRF tyres.
