Within just over three months of signing a co-development agreement, the partnership between Tata Motors and Volkswagen Group has run into rough weather, with differences over the use of platform and doubts related to business viability.
In March this year, Tata Motors, Volkswagen Group, and Skoda had announced an alliance for the joint development of products with the first roll-out expected in 2019.
The two companies were exploring using Tata Motors’ AMP (Advanced Modular Platform) with VW technology, especially electronics, for products meant
for emerging markets in order to gain a significant cost advantage over VW’s MQB-A platform.
However, the proposal has turned out to be expensive and there is a realization that the business proposition of such a collaboration is not as attractive as it was assumed earlier.
