Hmm they do look nice although the designs seems to have inspirations from MAN, Mercedes trucks etc

Today seeing the adv of the tata Prima new truck series in the bangalore edition of the TOI, 2 things jus came to my mind
1) Its defenitely male !
2) he's a handsome hunk

Im sure its the best looking truck at this moment compared to any Volvo, Scania, DAF or even MAN

Great Job TATA !

There was a new ad in TOI even next day i.e. 2nd jan. And it was really awesome. They showed interior of the truck and i must admit it was way better than many cars around.
It made me have thoughts about leaving my current career and becoming trucky for moments. Trucking has finally arrived in new age in india and that too with bang. The bang named PRIMA

Did a google search and found this pics..outstanding. To say TATA entering the global truck market this product should be smashing hit. And since nano has already made tata's so famous, i dont think people should shy away from this lineup abroad.

Looks really beautiful. Although one thing that came to mind (may sound sarcastic here) is that the front bumpers are so low that it won't cross the first speed-breaker (read as speed mountain) or pothole that it may encounter in our jagged highways.

well for cars1
couldn't agree with you more, but it will take years for it to trickle down into mainstream use,till then all it will do will be port call containers and duty around the industrialised areas.
With the directions that our NHAI has taken,i do think we can see more uses of this class of trucks

The TATA Prima does look butchy and as the ad says varies from a 25 tonner to 75 Tonner. Would be good to know what all engines there are getting for India. Would be good competition for Mahindra Navistar.

The TATA Prima does look awesome for the current Indian Scenario. Should be a run away hit and hope TATA backs up these products with the right service mindset!

somehow it looks too bulky in the front. Don't like the front view at all. Side view is good though. Saw the ad in today's Economic times

With people realising that driver comfort could mean safer faster travel and a quicker turnaround time - it would be quite possible that the a/c (option?) will be even desired given the negligible difference compared to the cost of the vehicle.

As ever return on investment will be calculated and user experience will show that it is worth it over the life of the trunk me thinks.
