With a rated payload of 1Tonne, the Tata Ace Mega is powered by Tata Motors new-generation DiCOR diesel engine, which according to the company, offers best-in-class fuel efficiency and the lowest total cost of ownership of a small commercial vehicle.
Developed for transport operators, the Ace Mega promises more trips and more load carrying capability, with a low turnaround time, meeting requirements of both, intra-city and intercity transportation.
Rudrarup Maitra, Head-International Business, Commercial Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors said, “Tata Motors has been a pioneer in creating and growing the small commercial vehicle market first in India and then in Nepal, with a varied portfolio in this segment. With the advantage of being the market leader in the segment, we know our customer requirements very well and the Ace Mega is one such product which emerges out of our in-depth knowledge and consumer insight. With the introduction of the Ace Mega, we are confident that it will become a key business partner for thousands of entrepreneurs and market load operators across the country. Like other members of the Tata Ace family, it will strongly contribute to an entrepreneur’s bottom line of business operations and progressively increase the top line with segment-leading uptime.”
With a combination of good power, speed, and fuel efficiency, the Ace Mega comes equipped with the 4th generation 2 cylinder 800 cc DiCOR engine that delivers 40 HP of power. The light-weight aluminum engine and the 5-speed gearbox provides a smooth drive and a claimed fuel efficiency of 18.5kmpl. Large brakes with 7 inch Brake boosters coupled with LCRV helps with the brake efficiency and longer life of the vehicle. The leaf-spring suspensions and axles makes the Ace Mega a vehicle suited for varied load and road conditions. A speed of 90kmph facilitates more trips due to the low turnaround time.
Aesthetically designed in-house, the Ace Mega comes with a cabin that provides an ergonomically located driver console, glove-box with lock, space for a music system, mobile charging facility, digital clock and full fabric seats. On the exterior, body colored bumper, new front protective wheel arch eyebrows, new sporty body graphics, wide angle ORVM on both sides are some of the changes. The vehicle also offers a cargo load deck size for market load operation and a rated payload of 1-ton with a new reinforced load body.
