The Tata SuperAce mini-truck, which is an innovative cargo transport solution, offers versatility, safety and comfort. Engineered to perform all the tasks of a small pick-up truck, the Tata SuperAce has a rated payload of one tonne, meeting requirements of both inter and intra-city transportation.
It is also suitable for market loads such as cement, construction items, vegetables and fruits, as well as food grains and fast moving consumer goods.
As the only diesel powered mini-truck in its segment, Tata SuperAce also comes with a petrol powered engine for a superior fuel economy and can hit a top speed of up to 130km per hour.
"Having sold over 1.5 million mini-trucks on the Ace platform globally, so far, Tata SuperAce has been developed based on Tata Motors' deep understanding of the CV customer for a wide range of applications," Ravindra Pisharody, executive director (commercial vehicles) of Tata Motors, said.
"Through our partnership with TMT Motors, we are committed to shaping the commercial vehicles industry here and are determined to build a long-lasting relationship with the customer for competitive business advantages and the trusted credentials of the Tata Motors brand," he said.
