Cool stuff dude.. I might want a couple of fog-lights at the top as well.. BTW, I seriously hope that the rear-seat comfort of the Telcoline is at par with all the other TATA vehicles.. viz, safari, sumo, indica and indigo..

Any Idea when this one is getting launched?? The last i heard was that the RTO's in bangalore were debating on whether this should be a passenger vehicle or a commercial vehicle..

I've waited far too long for this one now...

hey, forgot to write early.

last month when i visited mumbai, while going to lonavala, somewhere near nerul, on left side there was a tata showroom, and two SUVs, looked like telcoline/207 to me, were there with low bumpers and shining yellow and red colours.

are they the ones coming in market?

Those are Left Hand Drive models meant for export - see the LHD scrawled on the rear LHS.

Toyota Hilux are reliable and very durable. Remember what they did to that one on Topgear ?

http://www.bbc.co.uk/topgear/prog28/toyota.shtml

I hope the Tata is as durable.

There are lots of these 4x4 AUV (ute) on the roads in England. Some people have hardtops for the rear. They do not look as good with the top on but it makes carrying luggage etc easier.

South Africa has RHD versions which have been selling there for slightly over a year now - they drive on the same side of the road as we do.

The LHD versions are primarily sold in the middle-east, other parts of Africa, Spain, New Zealand and some other countries. The LHD versions have been around since about 2001 as full-fledged pickups a la Tatamobile). The TwinCab versions with plastic cladding, raised suspension, bullbars and the Safari engine came out slightly later.

Bigman dont compare them with Toyota Hilux...that vehicle is indestructible.

Along with the cockroach and the AK47, they are the most indestructible things on the planet (JC said this).

BTW, there are a few RHD ones too doing test runs. I have seen one in silver on Paud Road once, and a bottle green one at Nal Stop.
The rear bumper of the truck (in the pics) seems to be missing and thats where the rubber side cladding will go I suppose. They seem to be normal 207 DIs at first, but they are usually driven with the aircon on (unheard of for a 207).
Sometimes they can be seen with the bed full of identical cans (used as weights) for testing the load lugging capacity,IMO.

Ohh..and nice pics adya.

On a first look, the vehicle looks no different than the 207 models existing in the market, except for the improved tail-lights and a more polished loading bay..

Default Advice on buying TATA Telcoline 4x4 turbo inter cooler, non A/C

Hello fellow members,
I need to buy a new car and its raining discounts this month, although its about to end. I am really really confused on which one to buy.
Now, its being more then 9 months since my verito met with an accident and after a series of conversations, letters and unfortunate incidents I filed a case against the insurer the new India assurance as they were not ready to replace the body shell of the 12 month old vehicle even after a written statement by M&M stating that the body shell is not repairable and should be replaced by new.

I have come across a TATA Telcoline 4x4 turbo inter cooler non AC, near Ajmer at a TATA dealership brand new, but its a 2011 model. They have offered me a price of 5.50L on road. Now would it be wise to buy it as I have always wanted a 4x4 small truck that can concur any terrain. I can get white no. plates for it. Is this a good price for a vehicle from 2011? they are offering 3 years 3L Kms warranty.

Should I but it? Should I not? or should I go for a crossover like Quanto or a sedan like Manza 2012 with the heavy discount of 1.15L. My budget is around 6L. I'd thought about Xenon crew cab but that is a lil out of my budget and I am planning on buying a better car after getting a final verdict on my verito.

Reg this particular TL, pls consider:

1. It is 2+ years old
1a. If not used much, then not very good
1b. If used, for what was it used ? TD ? Dealer usage ?

2. 2nd row is not likely to be comfortable for family

3. Price looks high

4. Warranty for old vehicles may start from date of manufacture, and not date of purchase. Pls check this point for this particular veh

5. If you will use for family - then you may want a/c


*(*
The TCIC engine was a simple unit, no niggles / problems as such. Parts will be easy - since the old Sumo has the same engine.
