Tata Motors today commercially launched its all new Tata Indigo e-CS, the most fuel-efficient sedan in the country, with a host of exciting features. Built on the existing Tata Indigo platform, the Tata Indigo e-CS succeeds the highly successful Tata Indigo CS, the most compact sedan in the world, which became a best seller in the first year of its launch in 2008, and opened up a completely new market for upwardly mobile young professionals.
The Indigo CS has dominated the entry mid-size segment in the country for almost 2 years with its proposition of being the most compact sedan in the market. It has been appreciated for its classy styling as much as the great value proposition that it offers at an unbeatable price to a sedan customer.
If the Indigo CS was the most compact sedan in the world, the Indigo e-CS has set a fresh benchmark by also becoming the most fuel efficient sedan in the country. Sporting an all new 1.4 litre CR4 Common Rail Diesel engine, the e-CS offers an ARAI approved mileage of 23.03 kmpl, which is the highest for any sedan currently available in the country. It is also available with the 1.2 litre MPFI petrol engine to provide customers with a wider choice. The refinement in both the engines results in a more enjoyable driving experience, along with the seating comfort that the Indigo CS is known for. Both these engines are compliant with BS4 emission norms currently applicable in 13 cities in India.
The Indigo e-CS also gets a fresh new look on the exteriors with a new satin finish front grill, new headlamps, and ORVM with blinkers. This coupled with body coloured bumpers and chrome inserts on the rub rails endows the e-CS with head turning looks.
The dual tone beige interiors of the fabric and the dashboard create a plush feel. With a view to appealing to the youth, the Indigo e-CS comes equipped with a Bluetooth enabled music system and electrical controls for ORVMs. This is in addition to the AC, power steering and power windows which were available in the earlier Indigo CS as well.
The car comes with a warranty of 18 months for an unlimited no. of kilometres, amongst the best in the industry, and will be available in a range of 4 colours through 239 dealerships across 412 towns and cities in the country. The car is priced at Rs 4.07 lakhs ex-showroom Delhi for the MPFI petrol base eGLS version going upto Rs 5.13 lakhs ex-showroom Delhi for the top-end eLX version of the CR4 diesel.
