He told the reporters, “we showcased the one-tonne CNG-powered vehicle today..few months ago, we had launched the CNG-powered medium and heavy commercial vehicle with a range of 1,000 kilometres.. so we are geared up to address this transition towards electrification through alternate fuel.”

The executive director also revealed that Tata Motors expects CNG models to account for about 40% in the intermediate and light commercial vehicles segment, while it expects 20% in small commercial vehicles going ahead.

In a statement today, Tata Motors highlighted Yodha 2.0, Intra V20 bi-fuel, and Intra V50.

They come with bold new design and offer the highest payload capacity to carry heavier cargo; largest deck length to carry voluminous loads; highest power to weight ratio, longest range to traverse maximum distance; and modern safety and comfort features for stress-free driving.”

He added, “With all-terrain access to reach the remotest locations and the backing of India’s largest dealer and service network, the holistic value proposition offered by our comprehensive range of pickups is unbeatable.
