Mileage

Tata Indica eV2 is the most fuel efficient car in India, it gives 18 Kmpl in City and 25 Kmpl in Highways. According to the official press release of the Company, This mileage of 25 kmpl is hinged on three technological advancements.

  1. Smart Ems (Engine Management System) CHIP that involves perfectly calibrating every minute engine component to optimize functionality - Right from valve timing to compression ratios to pressure volume ratios, it flawlessly synchronizes every engine function to deliver this mileage.
  2. Maximum Charge Combustion - An innovatively designed engine block and piston assembly that ensures effective intake and circulation of charge (mixture of air and fuel), thereby almost preventing friction between parts. The result is max combustion of charge, increased efficiency and power.
  3. Drag Reduction - Redesigned wheel arches and subtle alterations on the exterior combined with a lighter shell and engine have collectively contributed to making the car more aerodynamic, reducing the drag coefficient.
Advantage LPG
  1. Dual-fuel car that switches smoothly between LPG & Petrol
  2. Just as peppy with LPG as it is with petrol
  3. The Green Fuel (LPG)
  4. Designed for complete safety
  5. LPG Gas Nozzle
