Our last post on Tata clearly tells us the future plans of the company including Tata Nano export and new entry level models for Jaguar and Land Rover which are well focused towards the degree of expansion this brand is looking at.
Ever heard of Tata Ace? You must have as it is a well known mini truck among all those who are indirectly or directly have some connection with the commercial vehicle industry. The truck has revolutionized the world of cargo carriers, eventually replacing the three wheeled auto rickshaws which used to contribute mind boggling amounts of pollutants to the rising pollution levels and were drastically improved by such trucks who could also run on CNG.
The latest buzz around the Ace is that the company is working on a smaller version of the Ace which is likely to be called Tata Ace Zip.
