According to the report, a refreshed Xenon pickup will be launched which will cater mainly to the private owner. The Xenon, assembled and sold in Thailand at the moment, largely attracts the commercial buyer, and is driven primarily by drivers and not owners. Tata hopes that the refreshed Xenon will alter the public's perception of Tata being a commercial vehicle maker, Mishra said.

The second product would be the Prima range, which will have its Thai debut at the Bus and Truck Show in November. The Prima will strengthen Tata's product portfolio in Thailand which currently extends to the Xenon range and Super Ace. The new Xenon and Prima are likely to have their market launches in the third quarter of this financial year.
