Prior to the launch of the new Safari monocoque, Tata Motors used to offer this iconic SUV with a proper ladder-on-frame chassis. The company gave it the name of Tata Safari Storme, and it was a decent hit in the country. However, this model was then discontinued, and ever since then, there has been a gap in the Tata lineup, and now there is no model that can directly compete with the Mahindra Scorpio Classic and Scorpio-N. However, what if the company decided to relaunch the Safari Storme with a modernized look? Well, if this were the case, then it could look something like this.
The video rendering of what the Tata Safari Classic could look like has been shared on YouTube by Bimble Designs on their channel. It starts off with a panning shot of the front end of the rendered Tata Safari Classic model finished in silver color. It can be noted that the overall body and design of the discontinued Tata Safari Storme has been retained. However, it has been given a number of modern elements to make it look more contemporary.
Tata Safari Classic: Design details
On the front, the first thing that we can note is that the headlights have been given a much more modern appearance. The inside portion of these LED headlights has been blacked out, and they have been given LED DRLs. Just underneath the main headlights, we can also note the presence of more LED headlights similar to the ones seen in the new Safari facelift with its split LED headlight setup. The front grille has also been blacked out, and it also takes inspiration from the grille of the outgoing Safari facelift. The front bumper also features a black skid plate as well.
Coming to the side profile, not much has been changed by the digital artist. The car continues to boast the same tall and long silhouette of the Safari Storme with the exception of 19-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. Additionally, the door handles have also been blacked out, and a Classic badge has been added on the side profile. As for the rear end, it also looks the same as the Storme but has been given a few little updates. This rendered model gets new LED taillights replacing the old halogen taillights. It also gets a new connected LED light bar in the middle as well.
Tata Safari Classic: Is it coming?
Unfortunately, at the moment, the company does not have any plans to bring back the Safari Storme with the new Classic badge. The company is currently moving towards a future with more electric vehicles in its plans. The company recently showcased the near-production version of the Sierra EV, which has also been in development for a long time.
Tata Motors will be bringing back the iconic Sierra name with the electric powertrain around 2025. The model will get a very bold exterior design and a modern interior layout. The company at the moment has not revealed its powertrain specifications. However, it is believed that it will be offering the Sierra EV with a 60 kWh battery pack which will be able to provide a range of around 550-600 km.
