9. Tata BlackBird: Delay in the launch

According to current media sources, there is a high possibility that Tata might have cancelled the ‘Blackbird’ project. Supposedly, Tata was to collaborate with Chinese automaker Chery on this SUV, but due to rising tensions between India and China, Tata could have abandoned this proposal. Tata, on the other hand, has a backup plan.

As per the rumours, Tata may be working on a new coupe-style SUV called Curvv, designed by adapting the Nexon’s X1 platform to the C-segment. It was also showcased at the start of the year 2022.
