HARMAN, the premium global audio and infotainment group (NYSE:HAR), announced a strategic multi-year relationship to develop and supply branded audio and infotainment solutions for TATA Motors (NYSE:TTM) India's largest automobile company and parent company of Jaguar Land Rover.

HARMAN will leverage its world-class engineering and development teams to create custom audio, navigation, and multimedia solutions for vehicles across Tata's model lines.
