Tata’s new car is coming under the name Blackbird
The demand for SUVs has increased in the Indian market. Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta are having tremendous sales in this segment.
To compete with these vehicles, Tata Motors is working on a new mid-size SUV Blackbird. This will be a coupe version of the Nexon car and it can be launched in the coming few months.
According to the reports, the company will also launch it in ICE engine with electric powertrain.

According to the information, it has been given a new front fascia with Tata’s signature Humanity Line Fox Grille.
Unlike the current Nexon, this rendering coupe SUV will also get a split lighting setup. It will get sleek LED DRLs in the upper part, while new LED headlamps will be installed on the bumper in the lower part.
