Tata Motors has been providing a trustable automobile business for a very long time. In recent years, Tata Motors has made impactful growth and has captured the market.

Here is rare footage of Ratan Tata announcing the launch of the Indica hatchback and Tata Safari.

The video shows Ratan Tata making a speech in the new launch. It shows rear-end of the Indica that gets a blue colour. It also showcases the iconic Tata Safari SUV in white colour parked in the background on a makeshift rock.

The first-generation Tata Safari became a popular choice in the market but due to the price tag, not many were inclined to buy the SUV.
