Tata Motors will felicitate Indian Olympians who missed the bronze medal with the Altroz hatchback. The players will receive the premium hatchback in High Street Gold colour.
The Indian players have scripted history at the Tokyo Olympics 2020 with their performance. While athletes like Neeraj Chopra, Mirabai Chanu, and many others won medals, there were many Indian players who stunned everyone with their performance, albeit missed a medal by a whisker. Tata Motors has decided to felicitate such players who became an inspiration for many youngsters but missed the bronze by gifting them Altroz. The company will gift them Altroz premium hatchback in High Street Gold colour and will start deliveries soon. This makes Tata Motors the second Indian carmaker to felicitate Indian Olympians. Before this, Mahindra announced that it will gift Olympic gold medal winner, Neeraj Chopra, a special edition of the XUV700 SUV.
As a gesture of gratitude, Tata Motors is happy to deliver ALTROZ – #TheGoldStandard to all the Indian athletes who narrowly missed the bronze at #TokyoOlympics. They may not have claimed a medal, but won millions of hearts and inspired billions to set #TheGoldStandard. pic.twitter.com/SlZazXG6HK

We are fortunate to celebrate the effort and spirit of our athletes representing our country, competing under the highest pressure against the absolute best talent the world has to offer and coming extremely close to a podium finish. They might have missed a medal but they have won the hearts of millions of Indians, with their dedication and are a true inspiration for budding athletes in India. As the leading homegrown automotive brand, we truly understand the spirit of ‘Dare to Dream and Achieve’, as it is a culture that drives us in Tata Motors as well.”
