Tata Motors showcases Safari Storme Mountain Rescue SUV and Concept S hatchback at Geneva 2013

Tata Motors showcased two concepts at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show in the form of the Safari Storme Mountain Rescue SUV and the Concept S high performance hatchback. Both the concepts are based on current products in Tata Motors’ range, in this case, the Safari Storme SUV and the Indica Vista hatchback. Essentially, both the concepts are restyled versions of current Tata cars. Apart from the various cosmetic changes these concepts get to perk up their looks, the stuff under the skin remains unchanged. Tata Motors has chosen to go low key at this year’s Geneva Motor Show and these concepts are proof of that approach.
