The Founder's Edition models of Tata Motors' lineup models celebrate the 75th anniversary of the brand and are only available for Tata employees to purchase. Check out this walkaround video of a Tata Altroz Founder's Edition.
Established by JRD Tata in 1945, Tata Motors is celebrating its 75th anniversary by introducing the Founder’s Edition of Tiago, Tigor, Nexon, Altroz and the Harrier. These limited-edition models get a special chrome-finished ‘T’ Tata badge on the front grille and boot lid with a blue coloured background to pay homage to JRD Tata. The models also get the automaker’s founder’s signature on the side fenders, C-pillar, boot lid and dashboard. Other than this the vehicles remain the same with no feature or cosmetic updates. Take a look at this video where a Tata employee shows the changes in his Founder’s Edition Altroz.
The video has been uploaded by T.C. Motors PVT. LTD. on YouTube. The Founder’s Edition models are only offered to Tata employees, with prices the same as the regular models it’s based on. There are no mechanical changes as well and everything remains stock. A Tata employee can book the vehicle online, after which they have to enter their employee ID, number, and name. The buyer we see in this video is Mr Faisal Kareem who works at TCS. Additionally, the buyer will get a photo frame of the vehicle they buy along with the JRD Tata badges around the vehicle.
Talking about the Tata Altroz, it is available with a choice of three powertrain options, a 1.2-litre N/A petrol, 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol and a 1.5-litre turbo-diesel unit.

Transmission options for the turbo-petrol currently include a 5-speed manual, with a DCT automatic version to be available in the upcoming months.
