Famous automobile manufacturer Tata Motors has launched the 10,000th Safari. The launch of the vehicle took place at the company’s Pune plant.
The company could produce only 100 units of the Safari in February due to COVID-19 induced restrictions across the country. However, the company managed to manufacture 9,900 within 4 months.
“We are thrilled to have reached this significant milestone for the new Safari in a span of four months. Not to mention, we have achieved this landmark during one of the toughest periods our country has endured in its long history. The 10000th feat validates the collective hard work put in by various teams responsible for the rebirth of this illustrious model. The Safari in its new avatar takes forward the brand’s rich legacy by combining Tata Motors’ Impact 2.0 design language with the proven capability of OMEGARC, the architecture derived from Land Rover’s renowned D8 platform – the gold standard among SUVs worldwide. This iconic brand is already leading the segment and we are delighted with our customers’ response. We thank our customers for their continued trust in the brand. We will continue to keep our New Forever range refreshed catering to the ever-evolving needs of our customers,” Shailesh Chandra, President – Passenger Vehicles Business Unit, Tata Motors said, speaking on the launch of 10,000th Safari.
