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.
