IndianAutosBlog.com reader Chaitanya Pise snagged the familiar Tata Indica eV2 CR4 XL test mule in Pune last week. Tata has shown so signs of slow down on the development of their first passenger car. The eV2 range sporting new body colors, added features, refreshed interiors and 25kmpl ARAI certified mileage was launched this year followed by the introduction of the LPG model.
With its long wheelbase, frugal diesel engine and low cost maintenance, the stretched Indica will attract the attention of cab operators looking out for a big car but aren't after a boot. Tata Motors can slot the Indica eV2 CR4 XL between the Indica and Indigo CS.
The lengthened hatchback segment is another first by Tata Motors who takes credit for creating new segments such as the mini truck segment with the Ace's launch and stimulating the A car segment with the Nano.
