Like we mentioned earlier, the Kite-based compact sedan will be a replacement for the Indigo eCS. This means that prices of this car could start at just INR 3.80 lakhs. Quite obviously then, this model will sit in a price segment lower than that of the Zest. It may be noted that the Indigo eCS has been very successful, especially among the fleet operators and the major reason for a terrific sales performance has been its competitive price tag. It would be safe to assume that Tata Motors would adopt a similar strategy for the Kite-based sedan.
