The platform sharing of H5 differs from all the present cars and SUV of Tata Motors that are assembled in Pimpri at Tata Plant.

Many components of the SUV has been searching in the local shops to make the cost of this model in cheap manners and the local staffs of Tata also said that the Tata Engineers are working on altering some parts of the car to get fit with the current conditions of the roads in the country.
