Tata Motors to tie up with Microsoft to drive into the future

Tata Motors is looking at the future: In a bid to make cars for the future, the company is poised to get into a tie-up with global technology major Microsoft. The largest automobile maker in the country has reported a 96 per cent drop in its consolidated profit for the October to December quarter for financial year 2016-17, mainly because of a steep decline in gains from overseas unit Jaguar Land Rover. According to sources, Tata Motors and Microsoft would be working together to make solutions such as inter-connectivity in cars and autonomous vehicles.
