Shortage in semiconductors is here to stay as auto manufacturers continue to grapple with the ongoing global crisis. It started taking a toll on Indian OEMs more than a year back which was accentuated by the Covid-19 pandemic. With no relief in foresight, companies have started taking counter measures to handle this grim situation.

Tata Motors offering only one remote key

Other OEMs have started reducing features in one or more variants of a particular model. Tata Motors is the latest to fall in this net as the Indian carmaker is now able to provide only a single remote key to its customers. This includes models like Punch, Altroz, Harrier and Safari.

Base models that do not offer keyless entry as a feature continue to be offered with two manual keys. Whereas, higher-spec variants that come with keyless entry are offered either with one remote key and a manual key or just a single remote.

Only top-spec variants of Altroz- XZ and XZ+ are being offered with keyless entry through wrist bands. The same is expected to be applicable on the special edition models of all four cars mentioned above.
