Tata Motors has announced that it has received an order of 1,542 Sumo Gold Utility Vehicles from various police and other law enforcement agencies in the country.
The Sumo Gold boasts of a ground clearance of 182 mm. The 3.0L CR4 diesel engine produces 85 PS of power at 3,000 rpm and 250 Nm of torque in the range of 1,000 to 2,000 rpm. All of this with a fuel efficiency of about 15 kmpl helps in giving out a rugged, comfortable, reliable and low cost of running vehicle, making it a critical member in law enforcement agencies across the country.
The ability to negotiate city roads with ease has made it a good choice for commercial as well as personal transport options and most importantly a great people moving option for law enforcement agencies. Defence Solutions by Tata Motors offers its customers a wide range of vehicles in the light, medium and heavy category.
These include Logistics, Tactical, Armoured and Specialist vehicles, with lowest life-cycle upkeep cost, supported by Tata Motors’ vast service network spread across the length and breadth of the country, ensuring maximum operational readiness in a short amount of time.
Since 1958, Tata Motors has supplied over 1 lakh vehicles to the country’s defence and security forces which includes the likes of Indian military and paramilitary forces.
Tata also exports their range of specialized defence vehicles to the SAARC, ASEAN and African regions. The company’s rich product assortment in multi-axle range like 12×12, 8×8 & 6×6, has enabled it to start supplying to leading missile OEMs across the world. The company has also had the honour to establish itself as a supplier of specialist vehicles for UN peacekeeping missions.
Tata also showcased a rugged Sumo Extreme 4×4 concept at the Auto Expo this year – a model which a lot of customers would buy if offered on sale.
