The Indigo eCS managed to return an impressive average fuel economy of 18.71 kmpl throughout the record breaking run.
Challenging terrain, unfavorable climate, axle-snapping potholes and treacherous road conditions. Those are some of the obstacles that lay in the path of a group of professional drivers as they battled their way to set a new endurance record in a Tata Indigo eCS.
After 15 days of non-stop nation-wide mileage run, crossing 19 states and union territories and covering over 14,000 km, the Indigo eCS set a new record in the Limca Book of Records for the ‘longest endurance run of a car conducted in the country’
Touching all four gateways from Koteshwar in West to Kibithu in East, from Kashmir in the North to Kanyakumari in the South, the Indigo eCS ploughed on without missing a beat and managed to return best fuel economy figure of 41.14 kmpl besides averaging 18.71 kmpl throughout the record breaking run. This just goes on to show how sturdy and fuel efficient the Indigo eCS is.
During February last year, Tata Motors flagged-off the journey of a non-stop, nation-wide mileage and endurance run to challenge the Tata Indigo eCS in its efficiency and endurance. The carmaker and the Autocar India team have been associated with KPMG to confirm the results of mileage and the endurance drive, by tracking distance on GPS. The team drove the robust Tata Indigo eCS, through challenging terrains and in different climatic conditions, pushing it to its limits and setting a national record.
Speaking on this remarkable achievement, Mr. RanjitYadav, President, Passenger Vehicles Business Unit, Tata Motors said, “The Tata Indigo eCS is the 3rd largest selling sedan in India today. The car has been appreciated for its classy styling and unbeatable value proposition that it offers. This endurance record has proven the Tata Indigo eCS as a robust and the most fuel-efficient sedan. Tata brands have always brought to the Indian passenger car market, best-in-class features, spacious interiors, personalised comfort and fuel efficiency. This feat has further encouraged us to continue developing innovative products and bring to market first-in-class value propositions.”
