Tata Motors has launched the CNG version of the 407 commercial truck at a sticker price of Rs 12.07 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom, Pune) in the country. Available with a 10-feet load deck, Tata 407 CNG offers profits of up to 35 percent over the diesel variant. It comes in the 5-tonne to 16-tonne gross vehicle weight (GVW), in the I&LCV segment. The 407 range has been equipped with Fleet Edge – Tata Motors’ next-gen connected vehicle platform for optimal fleet management with a free subscription of 2 years in the Indian market.
Being powered by a 3.8L CNG powertrain with the SGI technology, it has a maximum power output of 84 bhp and peak torque performance of 285 Nm (best-in-class). The truck comes with a fuel tank capacity of 180 litres. The suspension duties are carried by a parabolic unit upfront which reduces clutch and gear shift effort while ensuring low NVH levels. The cabin is built with high-grade steel and it boasts of a USB mobile charging port and Blaupunkt music system as standard features. The brand is providing a best-in-industry warranty of 3 years / 3 lakh kilometres with the truck. Also, the Sampoorna Seva 2.0 comprehensive service package can be availed with the 407 CNG.
Commenting on the launch, Mr. Rudrarup Maitra, Vice President, Product Line, I&LCV, Tata Motors, said, “We are thrilled to launch the all-new CNG variant of the legendary Tata 407. Arguably the most legendary commercial vehicle in India, with a 35+ year legacy, the vehicle has consistently remained a customer-favourite, selling over 1.2 million units to date – the highest ever in this segment. The main reason for the vehicle’s rich legacy is its fundamental nature as a customer-centric vehicle – engineered to deliver unmatched performance at minimal operation costs. With a steep increase in diesel prices, CNG vehicles have the potential to increase the profit potential significantly, and we are confident that the 407 CNG, in addition to the widest CNG range offered by Tata Motors, will bring a lot of value to our customers.”
