Tata Motors on Monday launched its updated range of pick-up CVs, including the Yodha 2.0 and Yodha EX, starting at INR 9.99 lakh and INR 10.74 lakh respectively (ex-showroom, India). The company also launched the Intra V50 at INR 8.67 Lakh and Intra V20 bi-fuel, for which prices weren’t announced.
Interestingly, the launch was commemorated by delivering 750 units of the new pick-ups to customers across the country.
The Yodha is available in rated payload options of 1,200 kg, 1,500 kg and 1,700 kg, with 4x4 and 4x2 configurations, and in single cab and crew cab options. The Yodha range is powered by a 2.2 litre diesel engine that is claimed to produce 250 Nm of torque. The company also claimed it comes with a grade-ability of 30%.
Meanwhile, the new Intra V50 pick-up runs on a 1.5 litre diesel engine, with 220 Nm torque and a payload capacity of 1,500 kg. Additionally, the interior of the pick-up now features AC and a digital driver’s display, said the company.
The Intra V20, claimed to be India’s first bi-fuel pick-up, comes with a 1.2 litre bi-fuel engine that produces maximum torque of 106 Nm, a claimed range of 700 km and a payload capacity of 1,000 kg.
Additionally, the entire Intra range of pick-up trucks, including the V10 and V30, have also been given an updated cabin with a walk-through cabin and dash-mounted gear lever.
Girish Wagh, Executive Director, Tata Motors said that globally, LCV numbers are about six-folds bigger than heavy CVs, but it's less than three-folds in India. That projects there's enough opportunity to grow.
