The JTP range of cars have been designed and engineered with precision to keep the excitement & passion of motoring aliveand reverse the commoditization of car purchase. Customers can enjoy their city drive and experience the thrill of driving with these cars. The JTP products will also have a halo effect on the Tiago and Tigor brands.”
According to Mr. Gubbi Nagbhushan, CEO, JTSV, “We at JTSV are excited to launch the first 2 cars of JTP range of vehicles. The Tiago and Tigor are extremely capable products, which have further been boosted with Jayem’s technical know-how of developing performance cars. Targeted at the urban customers who are driving enthusiasts with a hidden streak of adventure, the Tiago JTP and the Tigor JTP have been engineered to provide customers with the thrill of driving.”
The joint venture between Tata Motors and Jayem Auto focuses on design and development of performance cars, including the uniquely styled parts. The joint venture enables faster development, specialized capabilities, and access to true performance motoring pedigree.
Manufactured at the Tata Motors Sanand facility, the Tiago JTP and Tigor JTP are powered with the 1.2L turbocharged new generation Revotron petrol engine. These performance cars are engineered to deliver the thrill of driving with 114PS power and 150Nm torque and will come with Multi Drive Modes – City and Sport.

Tuned for precision, the suspension setup has been amalgamated with reduced ground clearance for improved driving dynamics. Capped at a maximum speed of 160 kmph, the car can go from 0-100km/h in 10 seconds.
While the base cars that JTSV uses are already created under the Impact Design Philosophy, the strategic addition of the custom design JTP elements amplify the impact of the design further, in line with the ‘thrill to drive’ philosophy of JTSV products.Built to provide that extra kick while driving, these cars are not only performance oriented on the inside but also provide the customers with a dynamic sporty look. The bold exterior styling with new front end design with large grill, smoked projector headlamps, bonnet and fender vents, 15″ diamond cut alloy wheels and side skirts for a dynamic side gives it a distinct look on the outside. Building on the sporty interior design, the all black interiors with sporty accents on AC vents, premium leather wrapped steering with contrast red stitching and performance aluminum pedals provide the inmates with sporty yet luxurious feel.
