Even though the company’s official website is yet to list the ‘Atlas Black’ color option for the Tata Harrier, the company’s authorized dealership has mentioned this color option in a document to Team BHP member hridayjyoti. As per the document, the new colour option, will be presented on the Tata Harrier XM, XT, and XZ variants.
Tata Harrier was launched in January this year. It is offered in five color options of Calisto Copper, Ariel Silver, Orcus White, Telesto Grey, and Thermisto Gold and four variants of XE, XM, XT and XZ. The new ‘Atlas Black’ color option is not offered on the base trim which is on sale only with ‘Orcus White’ color scheme while the ‘Calisto Copper’ paint scheme, seen on all promotions of the Harrier, is only offered with line XT and XZ trims.
Apart from this, there has been one more development with the Harrier. It has now replaced Nexon, and become the official car partner of 2019 Indian Premier League which starts on 23rd March.
Commenting on the continued association with the VIVO IPL, Mr. Mayank Pareek, President, Passenger Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors, said “After a successful association last year, it is only fitting for Tata Motors that our premium SUV, Harrier, should be the Official Partner of one of the biggest sporting events across the world. Born of legendary pedigree, the Harrier has received a phenomenal response from customers across India. Much like the IPL, which is one of the most iconic global cricketing events, and is widely celebrated as a platform for budding talent and international cricket legends, the Harrier too is known for its exhilarating performance and exciting drive. We have elaborate plans to capture the audience’s attention in-stadia, on-air and across digital platforms, and hope to drive tremendous value from this association yet again.”
