Looks lot better than the current version being sold in india,but i think this is only for export markets,see the provision for airbags,power windows,defogger and HVAC.

maybe you are not aware but there are about 25-30 percent customers of this Ace truck who have used it as mobile shops, dj equipment transport and other jazzy and applications which are meant to be more than just basic transport.

maybe tata could do this like the sumo spacio and victa way.
keep the old ace like the spacio and launch this like they did with the victa.

Looks good to me. But will it be suited to our roads. Moreover, if this launched as it is there will be no takers for this. They may have to cut down on all the extra things they are givng with this to keep the cost low.

if this is launched.. it can be a very different approach to light weight commercial trnsport in india.. atleast we can come closer to what is being used elsewhere.
