Tata Motors has launched in Sri Lanka the Tata Ace, the sub-one tonne mini truck developed by the company. Sri Lanka has become the first country where the Ace is being launched, and Ace is the first such vehicle to be introduced in the country.

Since its launch in India, in May 2005, the Ace, which is also India’s first mini-truck, has received strong response from customers and has created a new category in the Indian commercial vehicle industry.

Ace is powered by a small and efficient unique twin cylinder 16PS IDI 700cc diesel engine. Suitable for both rural and urban use, the Ace has the ability to carry a variety of payloads and has the agility to navigate narrow by-lanes with its turning radius of 4.3 metres.

The Ace is a high performance, low maintenance, safe and reliable mini-truck with sporty car-like features to ensure comfort in ride and handling. It has an ergonomically designed, all-steel cabin, including elegant two-toned seats, clear instrument cluster, utility trays, magazine pockets, twin-blade, twin-speed wipers and combination switches. The conveniently positioned gearshift lever and parking brake enhance comfort in ride and handling. The Ace meets all safety norms, including frontal crash, roof crush and rear wall strength. To ensure the safety of the driver and co-driver, seat belts are standard fitment. Disc and drum brakes in the front and rear respectively ensure high performance in sudden braking while the large windscreen and rear window allows for higher level of vision and clarity.
