    Default Tata Xenon Disappearance

    I saw that since November 2017 the Tata Xenon disappeared from the Tata website, the Car magazine pricelist, etc. Did I miss the warning in the media?

    As I'm concerned Tata can disappear completely...

    Hi guys,

    Do any of you know how to remove the tail light to replace a bulb on the Xenon, my friend has one and we cannot figure it. Also the manual does not state anything. I did see there are 2 white clips at the back if you have a look from underneath but they dont seem to turn or anything.

    Any assistance would be great thank you

    There are two screws in each of the rear corners of the load bin. I have not removed them but I would guess that is what they are for.

    Hi guys,

    I noticed that last year when I got my Xenon(bought it secondhand), I asked the service manager at an Imperial dealer,he told me that Tata is going to release a new Xenon middle of this year.

    I dont know if it is true,just what I heard. I went on the internet,tried to find something about it but can't find any photos or pictures.

    I had a look at their website they have an entire website for two vehicles a little thing called the bolt and some flap down workhorse, and a separate one for medium and heavy commercial.

    TATA seem to be showing a huge decline on the non-commercial side...

    They should really think to bring out a single and double cab range to rival the other entry level or more affordable bakkies such as GWM, JMC and the likes.

    Market share is too small, people don't buy no-name brands. That's why they stopped the Xenon.

    But surely they have enough money to put in to developing a decent single and double cab or something that the South African market will find appealing and some development of the brand. They just bought Jaguar and Landrover, so they clearly have lots of $$ over in India.

    So all of you with landies from 2019 onwards your indirectly TATA owners

    No one is going to buy a brand that can only provide two models for an entire country. Check their website its actually a joke.

    They had several models. They didn't sell.
