Tata Indigo eCS, the compact sedan variant of the Indica based Indigo entry level sedan, has set a new endurance record for which it has got an entry into the coveted Limca Book of Records with a remarkable achievement of a non-stop nation-wide mileage run. During the Endurance Run, the Tata Indigo eCS touched all four gateways – Koteshwar in West, Kibithu in East, Kashmir in the North and Kanyakumari in the South.
The car traveled through 19 states and union territories, covering 14,000 kms in a matter of just 15 days.
Speaking on this remarkable achievement, Mr. RanjitYadav, President – Passenger Vehicles Business Unit, Tata Motors said,“The Tata Indigo eCS is the 3rd largest selling sedan in India today. The car has been appreciated for its classy styling and unbeatable value proposition that it offers. This endurance record has proven the Tata Indigo eCS as a robust and the most fuel-efficient sedan. Tata brands have always brought to the Indian passenger car market, best-in-class features, spacious interiors, personalised comfort and fuel efficiency. This feat has further encouraged us to continue developing innovative products and bring to market first-in-class value propositions.”
In February 2012, Tata Motors flagged-off an epic journey of a non-stop, nation-wide mileage & endurance run to test the Tata Indigo eCS in its efficiency and endurance. Tata Motors and the Autocar India team have been associated with KPMG to validate the results of mileage and the endurance drive, by tracking distance on GPS.
13 auto experts from Autocar India drove the robust Tata Indigo eCS, through challenging terrains and in different climatic conditions, pushing the mean machine to its limits and deservingly earned it a national record in the Limca Book of Records.
