The Tata Ace was India’s first ever high torque mini-truck that struck chord with the masses with its incredibly on-point advertisement tagline, ‘Çhota Hathi’ and ever since then not just the Ace but the whole segment it created has been known by this name. It was also a product that showcased how well Tata Motors understand the requirements of the Indian commercial vehicle market. First, coming to the scene in the year 2005, the Tata Ace continues to be a massive hit for its maker, selling over more than 2 million units in just under 15 years, which is absolutely incredible.
On the other hand, Maruti Suzuki Super Carry is a decent option in the category of small commercial vehicles industry. By launching this truck, Maruti has changed the LCV segment of India. It holds a fuel tank capacity of 30 litres that makes it excellent for short rides. It has the ability to carry up to 740 kg without any issue. Inside the cabin, two persons can be seated along with the driver.
