The four outlet is located in Quezon City, Metro Manila.

The new showroom is owned and operated by Mahindra Auto Corp., and is about 1,500 sq.m. large. It can display four vehicles and has a service area capable of servicing four cars at a time.

Tata Motors was launched in Philippines in April this year, at the Manila International Auto Show. It sells the Tata Indica, Indigo, Vista and Manza in the passenger cars segment and Xenon, Ace and Super Ace in the commercial segment.

Of particular interest among these products is the Ace, which is powered by a 624 cc twin-cylinder petrol engine, the same engine block used in the Tata Nano. Engineers have made changes to the flywheel, exhaust manifold, oil sump, ECU and gearbox to make it more suitable for commercial applications.

The Indigo taxi looks to compete with the Toyota Vios, which has been used in the taxi market for the last two generations now.
