Tata develops petrol version of Super Ace for export markets
Tata Motors has developed a petrol version of its Super Ace LCV. The company plans to sell it in markets where demand for such a vehicle is strong. These include some countries in the Middle East, Asia and Africa.
The Super Ace is believed to be given the same 1.4-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine that was used in the Indigo sedan. However, in the Super Ace, it is likely to be tuned to make it more suitable for hauling loads. The Super Ace has a payload capacity of 1 tonne.
Tata Motors is also believed to be considering a petrol version of the Ace. It will use the 624 cc, twin-cylinder engine from the Nano. Between April 2014 and February 2015, Tata Motors sold 1,60,000 LCVs, out of which, 24,628 units were exported.

Re: Tata develops petrol version of Super Ace for export markets
Excellent business sense, they have the vehicles and motors. They have to just plug in the right vehicle to the right motors for a particular market.
Just wondering if such a petrol motor option would work well in India as well, considering the reduced fuel margins and CNG/LPG option as well. Omni Cargo is one example of selling in such a combo for quite some time now.
