Commercial Vehicle - - CV MONITOR / NEWS -

Tata Mo­tors launched the new Tata Su­per Ace, the one-tonne diesel mini-truck in South Africa. The di­men­sions of truck are com­pact at 4.34 m in length, 1.56 m in width and a turn­ing ra­dius of 5.1 m. The chas­sis is made from high strength steel for max­i­mum dura­bil­ity. The three way drop-side load body and op­ti­mum load­ing height of 60 cm makes the Tata Su­per Ace a ver­sa­tile op­tion for var­i­ous ap­pli­ca­tions. The truck comes with an im­pres­sive load­ing deck of 2.63 m. The Su­per Ace has an air-con­di­tioned cabin with fea­tures like lam­i­nated wind­screen, tinted glasses, power win­dows, power steer­ing, ex­ter­nal power socket and lock­able glove box. The dash-board is de­signed us­ing the new ‘soft touch’ tech­nol­ogy with a HVAC sys­tem on the in­stru­ment clus­ter.

The mini-truck is equipped with a 4-cylin­der, tur­bocharged & in­ter­cooled (475 IDI) diesel engine that is cou­pled with a 5-speed fully syn­chromesh gear­box. Its diesel engine de­liv­ers a power of 70 hp (52 kW) and a peak torque of 135 Nm at very low rpms. The grade­abil­ity of 39 per­cent al­lows it to climb steep slopes and ne­go­ti­ate dif­fi­cult ter­rain. With a fuel con­sump­tion of 14 kmpl or 7.2 litres/100 kms and com­pet­i­tively priced spare parts, the run­ning cost of the Tata Su­per Ace is among the low­est in the mar­ket.

The Tata Su­per ACE will be avail­able in 2 trims. The price range starts from South African Rand 109,995 (incl. VAT) for the lower-end model and R 1,16,995 (incl. VAT) for the top model. The model comes with a A 3-year/ 60,000 km com­pli­men­tary main­te­nance plan, 3-year/1,00,000 km war­ranty and 3-years/ un­lim­ited km road­side as­sis­tance.

With the launch of the new Su­per ACE, Tata Mo­tors now has a CV cater­ing to ev­ery mar­ket in South Africa rang­ing from the 1 tonne mini-truck to 56 tonne gross com­bi­na­tion mass prime movers. The dis­tri­bu­tion of Tata pick-ups in South Africa started in 2004 through Ac­cor­dian In­vest­ments (Pty)
