Tata Motors will soon offer performance versions of some of their current models. The company today announced a tie up with Jayem Automotives to develop these vehicles. The cars will be developed under JT Special Vehicles Pvt. Ltd. – a joint venture between the Coimbatore based firm and Tata Motors.
Initially, Tata Motors plans to introduce sporty versions of the Tiago hatchback and Tigor compact sedan. The upcoming Tata Nexon is also expected to receive a performance boost in the months following its launch.
Tata Motors and Jayem Automotives are currently in the process of evaluating the setup of a dedicated assembly unit in Coimbatore alongside an existing facility where Jayem build their race cars and rally cars.
Jayem Automotive has previously partnered with Tata Motors on multiple projects. Their most noted projects include the Bolt Sport which was showcased at the 2016 Delhi Auto Expo and the ‘Super Nano’- a 232hp track car based on the Nano.
