Actor John Abraham reveals how he bought his first car – Tata Sierra [Video]

John Abraham is one of the popular actors of Bollywood. He is known for his love for motorcycles and is an avid biker. The actor is said to have around 18 bikes in his garage. We often see John Abraham associated with motorcycles as this is what he loves the most. However, apart from bikes, the actor also has a good number of cars and SUVs in his garage. Some of them have also been displayed on our website. John’s first car though was a Tata Sierra and in one of his recent interviews, the actor told or revealed how he bought his first car.

This video has been shared by mashable.india on its Instagram page. The video shared on Instagram is actually a small part of the interview where he actually talks about buying his first car. The Tata Sierra that he bought was actually a used car. John started modeling and started getting money. That’s when he decided to buy a car for himself. The Tata Sierra was indeed an SUV which was probably way ahead of its time. It was launched in 1991 and was discontinued in 2003. These days you hardly find this SUV on the road.

Coming back to the story, John Abraham knew a person who had a Tata Sierra. It was an elderly gentleman who was a distant relative of John Abraham. When John approached him about buying Sierra, he was actually willing to sell it. The elderly gentleman was really a car lover and had kept the car in good condition. The person who sold the car to John also put a condition. She said that if John ever wanted to sell the car, he should come back to her and not sell it to anyone else. The exact reason behind this is not known but, we like to think that he really liked the car. He also told John Abraham that he would buy it back at a price he thought was right.

John Abraham’s first car

The Tata Sierra was probably one of the first compact SUVs to be sold in the Indian market. It was also the first vehicle to come with a diesel engine. It was based on the Tata Telcoline and also had the same front fascia and the same engine. The design of the SUV has attracted many customers. The SUV came with a three-door design with a large window for the rear passengers. There were positives and negatives about the Sierra 3 door’s design. Not many people in India were ready for the 3-door SUV and that is probably the reason why it did not perform well.

Nearly two decades after the Sierra was discontinued from the market, Tata showcased the Sierra Concept at the 2020 Auto Expo. It attracted a lot of audience and showed how much people love SUVs. The production-ready version of the Sierra was showcased at the Auto Expo this year. Tata has confirmed that the SUV will make a comeback in the market in an EV avatar. The production version of the SUV is expected to be launched in 2025.
