His resignation comes at a time when Tata’s two vital car - Bolt hatchback and Zest sedan - launches are around the corner. He had recently said that both cars will mark a ‘dramatic perception change’ of Tata Motors.

In April 2013, Arora had joined the Tata Motors to become part of the late managing director Karl Slym’s core team. Prior to this, the two had worked together in General Motors India where he served as vice-president of marketing, sales.

It is still unclear as to who will succeed him. There are reports that Arora may move abroad to occupy a prominent position in the automotive sector.

Meanwhile, S Jayaraman, a senior executive on the product planning team, has also resigned.
