nope, it was Tata Novus. look the photos of novus. it is smaller than this one. the grill and headlights are also diffrent than this one. this New truck is for Africa and Asia. may be some parts of Europe too.

Nice one Tushky!
Lately, I kept spotting some nice FH12 based trucks being tested too. Dump trucks/mining/special purpose vehicles with the new Volvo fascia. They look real neat and monstrous at the same time.

Tushky actually when I saw the same on the road I had mistaken these for the MAN-Force trucks.

You sure about the tata badging.

Had a detailed look on the MAN range of trucks and found the front grill on the MAN trucks to be distinctly different from the above spy pics and the above grill is very much in line with the TATA-Daewoo trucks.

Congrats and welcome Tushky!

You are a great addition to the team!

Spy pic of this truck first appeared in Overdrive a few months back. Artist's drawing of this truck first appeared on the cover of Business World some 2 years back.

This truck's been designed by Stile Bertone of Italy and should be seen on Indian roads as well.

Indian versions will probably only get the Cummins engines.

The cab design is modular (hence boxy) so that you can have cabs of various size and configuration with common components.

Actually, Stile Bertone were supposed to design an entire series of trucks for Tata including semi-forward control ones.

Here's a press report regarding the engagement of Stile Bertone for Tata's world truck. Since I don't have the link, I'm forced to reproduce the report, with due apologies to Hindustan Times :

Tata Engg to join hands with Italian design firm
Saturday, August 24, 2002
Hindustan Times, Deepak Joshi

Tata Engineering is gearing up to meet the forthcoming European Union regulations on commercial vehicles in technical collaboration with the Turin-based engineering and design corporation Stile Berton. This is expected to give a boost to the Tata group company's efforts to enter the global market and be a major foreign exchange earner. The company exported 7,183 commercial vehicles in 2001-02, thereby earning forex to the tune of Rs 621 crore.

Telco's technical collaboration with Stile Berton will also include benchmarking of European cabs. Efforts will be made to itemise cost breakdown with regard to tooling, design and materials. "Tata Engineering would like to transform its range of commercial vehicles to provide the unique selling proposition of world class performance at the lowest cost," the foreign collaboration agreement states.

The various heavy commercial vehicles and buses made by the country's largest manufacturer will have specifications of a day cab, sleeper cab with low and high roofs as well as bonnetted versions. Several options of vehicle and bumper length will also be explored. The vehicles to be considered for upgradation will a width ranging from 2100 mm to 2450 mm.

Tata Engineering hopes that the cabs designed in collaboration with the Italian firm will have a life of 12 to 15 years after launch. For this purposed, it hopes to design products that are adaptable to receive future facelifts. The company is confident that by introduction of removable rear wall and ceiling it would be possible to represent in the same interior model the configuration of the long cab and high roof.
