Default SPY PICS : Tata Ace 6 seater

Large glass area to the rear by the looks of it - the handles for the rear door are placed really low.

Wonder what effect it will have on the AirCon.

This could mean the end of the omni.

edit: actually it may not if they still have the 16bhp 700cc engine.

Don't think this is for passengers. It appears to be a delivery van with a door on the left side only.

Atleast I hope its not meant for passengers.

The title says 6-seater, so I'm sure Tushky has seen some seats inside. PLUS, some parts of the covered panels seem to be glass and not metal panels.

So what was the Renault Trafik for? "R&D" or for pulling a fast one on competitors?

Delivery van/Passengers, either way, its definetely competition to Omni. Considering that Omni manages 7500 units/month lets see how many can this manage.

I wish something like these replace all the autos on our roads. That would mean less noise & better ride comfort.

Default Nice Van!

The best feature of the Van is the High rear mounted tali lamp. Remided me of the first few safaris.

If this is the delivery Van then I have seen 2 or 3 Ace Vans long time back.

If I remember correctly, the Minidor also came with a door only on one side. Its a rival for that, and not for the Omni me thinks.

This is the sort of auto you would use if you lived under Fidel Castro.
