Tata Motors launches Indica eV2

Tata Motors today launched the Tata Indica eV2, a fuel efficient car, with new exteriors and additional features that is priced within the range of up to Rs 4,87,619 (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The Indica eV2m, with a mileage of 25 km per litre, is priced at Rs 401,162 (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the base variant and Rs 4,87,619 (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the top-end variant, the company said in a release issued here.

The car is available in 3 variants -- eV2 LE (base variant), eV2 LS and eV2 LX (top-end variant) with the CR4 Common Rail Diesel engine as well as with an MPFI petrol engine to provide customers with a wider choice, it said.

"The car is also available with an MPFI petrol engine to provide customers with a wider choice. Both the engines are compliant with Bharat Stage IV emission norms," it added.

Some of the changes that the company has made in the refreshed version include new exteriors, stylish headlamps, new front bumper, integrated stop lamp and alloy wheels.

Tata Motors' move to reduce prices of one of its existing models by introducing a new variant is in contrast to other car makers including Honda Cars, Maruti Suzuki, General Motors and Audi India, who have wither raised the prices of their vehicles or in the process to do so, mainly due to adverse rupee movement.

Honda Cars India has raised the prices of its three models -- Brio, Jazz and City -- by up to 2.6 per cent with effect from October 1.

The country's largest car maker Maruti Suzuki India had also said it would hike the prices of its vehicles and it was working out the details.

General Motors India had said it would increase the prices of all its models from October 1 to offset the impact of rising input costs and currency fluctuation.
