Today's Business Standard, arguably the country's best, only honest?, business and serious public-affairs newspaper reports, excitingly: That Tata and Fiat are/have begun now to work at Ranjangaon on the localized manufacture of the 2.0 litre multijet diesel engine, which Fiat will use on the Jeep-branded C-SUV, and Tata will too on their premium, co-developed with Land Rover inputs, SUVs, all three planned for 2016?/2017. i.e., they plan to repeat the 1.3 mjd formula: shared engines (and transmissions?) for better economies of scale, better technology for Tata, better costing and risk-sharing for Fiat, as it uses India as an export base for that Jeep C-SUV to go offering it competitively enough priced in the domestic market, as also reported a month or two ago by Autocar India, and also the Economic Times. The sourced report also claims that Tata Motors has already, a month ago, sent RFQs to suppliers about these 2 2017 SUV-s, one a 5-seater, the other a 7-seat version. Safari improved-replacements, i guess? Apparently, the target sales, including exports, for these 2 SUV-s together is 50000 a year. i.e., 50,000 2l mjd engines? It also quotes an analyst who feels that, in the process, Fiat could find still other buyers (e.g., Maruti with the 1.3 mjd) for this 2 litre mjd. Strangely: no word on the 1.5/1.6 mjd, at all, perhaps because Tata has no use for it, as yet? Does not bode well, then, for the chances of that engine's arrival at the very least in the new all-new 2016 launch(es).
