Pratap Bose, Vice President, Global Design, Tata Motors wishes to hire a 4YO kid after watching him sketch a picture-perfect Tata Harrier. Read about the complete incident here.
Ever since Tata cars have adopted the Impact design language, they’ve started to look appealing. The man behind the Impact design language is Mr. Pratap Bose, who currently holds the position of Vice President, Global Designs, Tata Motors. Bose is a renowned name in the industry for his work and implementation of Impact 2.0 design language. Also, he is quite active on social media platforms. Recently, Bose retweeted a video clip of a 4-year-old boy that read as, “Absolutely. Incredible Talent. I wish we could hire him already!”
This tweet came as a reply to the video where a 4-year-old kid can be seen sketching a Tata Harrier. The video of this kid received a warm response with comments that read as, “Next Pratap Bose sir in the making” and more. Also, Tata patron used the opportunity to reach out to Mr. Bose to request him to release colouring books for kids with line drawings of Tata products.
Talking of the Harrier, it is the flagship product of the brand. It rivals the likes of MG Hector, Jeep Compass and more. The Harrier is underpinned by the brand’s OMEGA Arc platform, which is a modified version of JLR’s D8 architecture that also underpins the Land Rover Discovery Sport. With a long list of features, Harrier is one of the most-loaded cars of its segment. Powering the Harrier is a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged diesel engine, which can also be seen on the Jeep Compass and MG Hector.
This unit is capable of putting out a peak power output of 170 PS and max torque of 350 Nm. The transmission options on the Harrier include a 6-speed MT and a 6-speed AT (Hyundai-sourced). Last month, the indigenous carmaker introduced a new ‘XT+’ trim of the Harrier in the Indian market at an introductory price of Rs. 16.99 lakh. While the XT+ trim is based on the XT variant, it gets the full-size panoramic sunroof, which the latter misses out on. The prices of the Harrier start at Rs. 13.84 lakh and go up to Rs. 20.30 lakh.
