Tata Harrier petrol and EV launch timelines confirmed!

Late last year, Tata Motors gave its popular mid-size SUV, the Harrier, a significant mid-life refresh. Currently, the Harrier competes with models like the Hyundai Creta and Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, but it is only available with a diesel powertrain. This scenario, however, is about to change.

Tata Motors has officially confirmed that a petrol version of the Harrier will be introduced in 2025. This launch will coincide with the debut of the Harrier’s electric vehicle (EV) variant. The addition of a petrol engine option will align the Harrier with its competitors such as the Toyota Urban Cruiser Hyryder, Skoda Kushaq, Volkswagen Taigun, Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, and the Maruti Suzuki Grand Vitara, all of which currently offer petrol-powered versions.

The strategic move to introduce a petrol variant reflects Tata’s ambition to broaden its SUV portfolio. This approach is similar to what Tata has done with the Nexon, which is available in petrol, diesel, and EV powertrains. Additionally, the Nexon is set to expand further with a CNG version, which was showcased at the Bharat Mobility Show earlier this year. For those interested, detailed information about the Nexon CNG can be found on our website.

With these new additions, Tata Motors aims to enhance the versatility and appeal of the Harrier, providing consumers with a wider range of options to suit their preferences and needs. This expanded lineup is expected to strengthen Tata’s position in the competitive mid-size SUV market, offering an alternative for those who prefer petrol engines or are looking towards the future of electric mobility.
