In a bid to expand its product offering in Indonesia, Tata Motors will launch the top-end VX variant of the Safari Storme at the 2014 Indonesia International Motor Show (IIMS) which is scheduled to take place in September this year.

While the EX version of the Storme is priced at 285 million Indonesian Rupiah (INR 15.38 lakhs), the Storme VX will be priced in the region of 300 million Rupiah (INR 16.19 lakhs), reveals Manoj Arora, head of marketing and sales for Tata Motors in Indonesia.

The engine powering the VX Storme is the same used on the EX, a 2.2-liter four-cylinder motor outputting 140 PS at 4,000 rpm and 320 Nm of torque between 1,700-2,700 rpm. The Storme VX will be positioned as a Safari which promotes comfort, according to Mr. Arora.

    A great addition to the current portfolio of Tata Motors Indonesia.

    Tata Safari Storme features the mechanical capabilities that no other Indian based SUV has – making it a TRUE SUV on the Indian lands, made by an Indian manufacturer.

      Hello Bhargava, I agree with what you said.
      I am a die hard fan of Safari and very much like the range rover inspired design for storme.
      My only question is why Safari Storme is not as successful as XUV or Duster or Scorpio?

        Hi Mohit, the change is in the air. And the new journey will start in a very few months, with the Zest and the Bolt (in India) 🙂

      So you want to say that if Zest and Bolt tastes good success then it will also turn the tables for other Tata Vehicles…
