According to Mr. Ravi Pisharody, Executive Director, Commercial Vehicle Business Unit, Tata Motors Ltd., “With the advantage of being the market leader in the segment, we know our customer requirements very well and the ACE Mega is one such product which emerges out of our in-depth knowledge and consumer insight.”

The Tata ACE Mega will deliver best-in-class combination of power, speed, and fuel efficiency. It comes equipped with the technically advanced 4th generation 2 cylinder 800 cc DiCOR engine, which delivers a power of 40 HP. The light weight Aluminium engine and the smartly calibrated 5-speed gearbox facilitate a smooth drive and enhance fuel efficiency. Large brakes ensures best-in-class brake efficiency & longer life of the vehicle. The strong and rugged front and rear leaf-spring suspensions and axles make the Tata ACE Mega the perfect vehicle for varied load and road conditions.

Tata ACE Mega comes with a comfortable cabin with an ergonomically located driver console, glovebox with lock, provision for music system, mobile charging facility, digital clock and full fabric seats.

Features such as leaf spring suspension with rigid axles both in the front and rear, truck-like construction, 7” vacuum booster in the braking system, etc., make the Tata ACE Mega the most suitable vehicle for various applications. On the exterior, stylish body colored bumper, new front protective wheel arch eyebrows, new sporty body graphics, wide angle ORVM on both sides further accentuate the vehicle’s stance.

The vehicle also comes with an assured warranty of 2 years/ 72,000 kilometers (whichever is earlier).

The Tata ACE, an engineering marvel, was launched in 2005, when Tata Motors recognized a latent customer need to create a completely new market segment to pioneer the concept of mini-truck in India. It has since remained among the most preferred choices of Indian entrepreneurs and small businesses, leading the market with over 80% market-share.
