Tata Safari Storme replaces the Maruti Gypsy in the Indian Army which has served nearly 25 years in the Army.
According to the reports, the Indian Army has given an initial order of 3198 vehicles with Tata Motors and they would probably increase to 10 times in the forthcoming years. Tata Motors will get a Rs 1300 crore deal to supply high-mobility military trucks to the army.
Instated first in the Indian armed force in 1991, the Maruti Gypsy has been the most strong decision given its drive-capacity crosswise over shifted landscapes, ease of proprietorship and tough form. But it is based on petrol engine and due to low fuel efficiency and few number of petrol pumps in remote regions, especially in high altitudes, the Army is in a plan to replace the Maruti Gypsy.
Compared to petrol, diesel is a more widely available option. In this case the Tata Safari Storme is a suitable one.
Tata Safari Storme is powered by a 2.2-litre four-cylinder engine being a good package of power and fuel economy. The motor churns out 154bhp and 400Nm of torque, while paired to a 6-speed transmission; while there is also a 148bhp and 320Nm version on the lower variants, paired to a 5-speed gearbox.
In addition, the SUV accompanies both 4×2 and 4×4 alternatives, which will help the SUV swim through damp grounds, abandon, snow, rock and each sort of shifted territory our nation brings to the table.
There are currently 30,000 Gypsys available in armed forces and this will slowly replaced with the new one. One of the oldest SUVs to enter India is the Maruti Gypsy and the model is available to the public on a made to order basis.
