These are some of the most exciting times for the India automakers. After a disastrous 2019, carmakers are now taking uncharted routes to market their products. Indian automakers are often blames for not taking safety seriously. For a country with the most fatal accidents globally, safety has to be no-compromise necessity in a vehicle.
Sadly though, safety has often been associated with increased price tag of a vehicle and India being a cost conscious country, safety is often given step-treatment. There’s some sign of hope though. At the launch of the Tata Altroz, the Indian automaker pushed hard on safety, and why should’t it. After all, Tata Motors is the only Indian carmaker to have two 5-Star rated cars in their portfolio.
