The managing director of Tata’s Australian distributor, Fusion Automotive, has revealed some new details about the relationship between Tata and Jaguar Land Rover.

Speaking to Drive, Darren Bowler said the companies are collaborating a number of models but there won't be any badge engineering between vehicles from Jaguar, Land Rover and Tata. As he explained, "You’re going to see in the future a lot of sharing of technologies and platforms over time, but you won’t see a JLR with a Tata badge on it or a Tata with a Jaguar badge on it or a Land Rover badge on it.”

Bowler also revealed the Tata Nexon concept rode on a new platform that will be shared by the companies. He didn't go into specifics but said the platform could be used on the next-generation Evoque or a Jaguar model. That news probably won't sit well with everyone but Bowler compared to Volkswagen's MQB platform that underpins everything from the Golf to the Audi TT.
