Tata Safari Storme Spotted
It could be used for testing new components

A Tata Safari Storme was spotted on test in Lucknow recently, sparking speculations about what the carmaker is working on of late.

Seen near the Tata Engineering and Locomotive Company (TELCO) facility in the Uttar Pradesh capital, the SUV is likely being used for research and development purposes.

Since TELCO develops and produces components for the powertrains found in Tata’s passenger vehicles, it makes sense to speculate that the Safari Storme is being used to test newly-developed components.

And what those components fitted to the Tata Safari Storme spotted on test might be is not known at the moment. They could be ones that might be fitted to the GS800 Safari Storme produced exclusively for the Indian Army, for all we know.

The Safari moniker is deep-rooted within Tata’s legacy and thus, even after the old model was discontinued, the name lives on, in the 2021 Safari.

It sports plentiful features and has a 2.0-litre diesel engine which puts out a maximum of 170 PS and 350 torques, under the bonnet. It can be had either with a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic transmission.

To be offered in both 6- and 7-seater variants, the new-generation Safari will be launched soon and bookings for the SUV are officially open.
