Fortuner71- Please do share with us the joy of owning the beast Sir! We're are all hungry to review the first initial ownership report on the forum.

I spotted a silver Storme EX near Palarivattom, Cochin and also saw a brown coloured Storme parked inside a TATA Motors Dealership somewhere near Vyttila, Cochin. So, Cochin SUV enthusiasts; how many of you all booked the beast?

I booked the Storme LX on 19th was promised delivery within 2 weeks but it seems that it will only be delivered in the 3rd week. The dealer gave me the VIN no today and I have confirmed its a 2013 model. None of the dealers in Bangalore were ready to offer any discount which is understandable as Storme is a new launch but there was no offer of any goodies except from KHT. (Floor mats, & teflon coating)


Prerarna was my first choice as I had purchased my Palio from them but they did not show any consideration for customer loyalty. I expected them to at least throw in some standard goodies but all I got was a terse no. . KHT was my second choice as the service center is much closer to where I live and work. Their quote was much higher but later realized it included the AMC (Assured Maintainance Contract) for 40K kms and 4 years. I felt that it was a good deal to go in for the AMC as I would not have to pay for any repairs at all.

I also asked for a quote from my current insurer for the Storme and was surprised at the amount quoted. There is a good discount if you have a no claim record on your existing car. After checking I informed the dealer that I will take insurance on my own. It will also be easy to maintain relationships with a single insurance company.

Congrats! Please add as much as pics as you can. I would like to see the interior pics and have a visual comparo with VX (I have been in VX). Kind of unhappy with the color used right above the glove box.

Looks like the Storme has finally driven into Team-BHP

Congratulations to all the folks who've booked (and received) their beast. Have a long, happy and adventure filled ownership. And, don't forget to keep us updated on the way your beast performs through a detailed report and loads of pics

Congratulations to new and prospective owners of Storme.
Looking at recently launched Manza and Vista 90 I think Tata Motors now have all the parts ready in there parts bin to add climate control and 2 din touchscreen ICE to the dashboard. For me this will complete the package.

Congrats on your Storme bro! Looks beautiful.

Are those beige mats stuck at the bottom on the floor in the first photo?

Could you please tell me how much is for AMC

There are 3 options for 30K, 40K and 50K kms from 20 to 5 years. I chose the one which is approximately 16K for 40K kms and 4 years.

I am not sure of nil depreciation I will check and post once I have confirmed the full details.

What's the point in picking one or two places which can be done ONLY in proper 4WD and saying Leh/Ladakh is extreme off-road?? If I have a 2WD, I should be sensible enough to drive ONLY to those places where my 2WD can move around and skip rest of the spots.
I guess my intention has not come out clear ! I meant that the example of Leh-Ladakh as basic-off-road is incorrect. Such roads are available in most of India's hilly terrain, there are worse ones than the ones I mentioned. Any normal road , say 30 km outside any city can also be termed "basic-off-road".

Having clarified so, Who says you need a 4WD to visit these places ? I have been there myself on a plain-jane Eeco ! W/o even a power steering ! I also have photos of an Endy smoking like a steam loco on the same roads. Most of the taxis there are 2WD Innovas and Xylos and SUMOs. Its the man behind the wheels there, I guess ?

Low slung cars, yes, I have also seen a couple of them there - but , I can bet most of them would have a scraped underbelly and damaged suspension mounts, etc.
