Tata Motors launches lifestyle Xenon XT Pickup

Press Release

Mumbai, February 25, 2009: Tata Motors today announced the India launch of Xenon XT (Cross Terrain), a life style 4 door, 5 seater pickup. The Xenon XT combines stylish on road presence and comfortable interiors with off road capabilities of a 4×4.

The tall aggressive stance of the vehicle is complemented by the trademark ‘Tata’ grill, large wraparound clear headlamps and integrated flared fenders. Side indicators move to the outer rear view mirrors (ORVMs) and roof rails enhance the looks while lending themselves to accessorisation.

Interiors are charcoal grey and can comfortably accommodate 5 in two rows. The vehicle offers comfort and convenience features like power steering, power windows, central locking, HVAC and electrically adjustable ORVMs.

The Xenon XT is powered by the widely accepted 2.2 VTT DICOR diesel engine with a peak power of 140 PS and a peak torque of 320 Nm. It has a 4X4 with an electrical shift-on-the-fly mechanism and a limited slip differential similar to the Safari. These, combined with a rugged ladder frame structure, a matching suspension and alloy wheels give the vehicle off road capabilities of an SUV. The load bed is a 1518 mm x 1414 mm area which lends itself to carrying equipment or having fun, as desired.

The Xenon XT can be customised to suit individual tastes and styles through a wide range of accessories such as bed-liners, fog lamps, canopy, boot lid, rollover bars and the like which will be on sale along with the vehicle.

The Xenon XT is priced at Rs. 7.62 lacs for the 4×2 version and Rs. 8.58 lacs for the 4×4 version, ex showroom Delhi. It comes in 4 attractive shades – White, Black, Silver and Mineral Red. The vehicle carries a warranty of 2 years or 75000 kms (whichever is earlier) and will be retailed through 58 Tata Passenger Car dealerships across 39 cities to begin with. The Xenon is already being retailed in the overseas markets of Thailand, Algeria, Italy, Poland, Saudi Arabia and South Africa.
