Default The All New e-Series Indigo CS

Tata has launched a BS4 Indigo CS called the e-Series.
The diesel engine is a Common Rail CR4 70 ps @ 4000 rpm with a 140Nm @ 1800-3000 rpm. Attached Brochure for information.

From the official press release:

Quote:
Tata Motors launches the all-new Tata Indigo e-CS,
the most fuel efficient sedan in the country

If the Indigo CS was the most compact sedan in the world, the Indigo e-CS has set a fresh benchmark by also becoming the most fuel efficient sedan in the country. Sporting an all new 1.4 litre CR4 Common Rail Diesel engine, the e-CS offers an ARAI approved mileage of 23.03 kmpl, which is the highest for any sedan currently available in the country. It is also available with the 1.2 litre MPFI petrol engine to provide customers with a wider choice. The refinement in both the engines results in a more enjoyable driving experience, along with the seating comfort that the Indigo CS is known for. Both these engines are compliant with BS4 emission norms currently applicable in 13 cities in India.

The Indigo e-CS also gets a fresh new look on the exteriors with a new satin finish front grill, new headlamps, and ORVM with blinkers. This coupled with body coloured bumpers and chrome inserts on the rub rails endows the e-CS with head turning looks.

The dual tone beige interiors of the fabric and the dashboard create a plush feel. With a view to appealing to the youth, the Indigo e-CS comes equipped with a Bluetooth enabled music system and electrical controls for ORVMs. This is in addition to the AC, power steering and power windows which were available in the earlier Indigo CS as well.

The car comes with a warranty of 18 months for an unlimited no. of kilometres, amongst the best in the industry, and will be available in a range of 4 colours through 239 dealerships across 412 towns and cities in the country. The car is priced at Rs 4.07 lakhs ex-showroom Delhi for the MPFI petrol base eGLS version going upto Rs 5.13 lakhs ex-showroom Delhi for the top-end eLX version of the CR4 diesel.

Removed this post since my comments were based on the brochure from Tata Motors link.

The e-series looks ok - carry over of parts from Indigo XL - I guess.

It could actually be the real deal, but most likely it is AC cutoff to prevent load on the engine

Its not hill climb assist! thats just a fancy name, what it actually is, is a simple ecu program which helps a novice drive or rather assist in hill starts, if one is to slot the vehicle on 1st gear and leave the clutch abruptly, the vehicle will not stall but labour up the gradient at a low speed of say 2-5kmph. This wont happen though if tried on a level road.

from the specification it does look like the old DiCOR 1400cc engine.
70ps and 140nm is same as when it was launched in the indica.

the gradient assist it quite a well thought out feature i guess. could be very useful in certain situations. simple yet effective.

the rear view mirrors with integrated turn signals look good.

have they also launched BSIV TDi for indigo CS?

They could have plonked the MJD into the CS and it would ruled the roost for quite some time. but isn't the dicor inferior to the MJD in terms of peformance, FE and NVH.
