Tata Motors took on to Twitter to announce the official name revealing of the upcoming Land-Rover based H5X SUV will take place today – 11th July, 2018. Along with the name reveal, Tata has also teased the H5X for the every first, revealing the grille of the SUV. Although a report confirmed that Tata will name H5X as ‘Harrier’ in India, Tata Motors will confirm the authenticity of the report today.

The teaser image showcase the humanity line running along the lower edge of the grille and the sleek looking LED headlights flanking the upper grille. The Tata H5X SUV is the first Tata product to be designed with the Impact Design 2.0 philosophy and shares its platform with the Tata Group owned Land Rover Freelander.




One of the most talked about cars in 2018, the Tata H5X made its public debut in India at the Auto Expo 2018. While the SUV showcased at the Auto Expo in the bright orange shade was a prototype, as per our conversation with Pratap Bose, Chief Designer at Tata Motors – the model showcased was 70% production ready and will hit the roads by early 2019.

The report also suggested that the model is already known as Harrier internally in Tata Motors, in sync with the carmaker's trend of codenaming its models after birds. What changed this time is the fact that Tata will use this internal codename as a final product name and is expected to make an official announcement soon.

Interestingly enough, the Harrier moniker is also used by Toyota for a mid-size SUV in its global portfolio, but is not available in India. The Tata H5X is expected to get a 2.0-litre diesel engine and is expected to be priced upwards of Rs 17 Lakhs upon its launch. There will be a five- and seven-seat configurations on offer.
