Some news of some octroi consessions are also there hence can be very competitevely priced with 2.2 140bhp engine.

Hey Bond great piece of Information looks like you are working in Tata ..... are they going to produce just 20 vehicles for launch, I think Mumbai alone can consume them in a day ................

Default Spotted LHD on Mumbai-Pune Exp

I spotted the Xenon on Mumbai- Pune Express Highway. It was a left hand drive. Its speed might be around 80-100 Km/hr. Might be they are testing the FE of the vehicle.

On road appearance is like a SUV-Pick Up from behind. But the front makes a good road appearance.

Yes its a Dam Good Vehicle to bully away Autos from your path.

Isn't this thread exactly an year old. But alas, it is still one of the concept cars which makers don't bring to market. Too sad, it is going to see x-over and other beautiful concepts from Tata. :(

See how they've managed to decrease the front ground clearance as well as the approach angle. :(

i saw the xenon this evening at concord. it had apparently come in from bangalore for registration and vehicle classification. I asked the sales guy what this was and he said "we have no information about this vehicle"

it looks like a flyby wire 4x4, and the 2.2 VTT. the steering looks like the sumo grande and the intereiors looked ok. I managed to take a few pictures of the car, will post it up soon. Looked very imposing.

I had dropped in today to test ride the Linea when I saw this beast. I tried some small talk with the salesman and I kept receiving the same answer, it is a commercial vehicle and he does not know who sells it

If this will be sold to private buyers and if we can get a lid for the cargo space like the pics from Steeroid, this might just be my next ride.

OT: When were you there ? I asked this because there were 3 other guys in a palio checking out the Linea as well
