Tata Motors introduces the new Indica V2 Xeta LPG

The Indica V2 Xeta LPG – prices start at Rs 3.27 lakh, ex-showroom DelhiIn a bid to provide some relief to car buyers who’re scared of rising petrol prices, Tata Motors has announced the launch of the Indica V2 Xeta LPG. The new Indica runs on LPG, but can also be run on petrol in case a user runs out of gas and/or if LPG is not available.

Tata Motors claim excellent fuel efficiency for the new Indica variant, and also says that running the car on LPG reduces its CO2 emissions by 10 percent. The engine is Tata’s proven 1.2-litre MPFI unit, but with two ECUs instead of the usual one. This, of course, is to allow the car to run on both petrol and LPG.

In LPG mode, the engine makes 62bhp at 5000rpm, while in petrol mode, power is a bit higher at 65bhp@5000rpm. A torque figure of 102Nm@2600rpm means excellent tractability and pulling power at low speeds, with a full load and with the AC switched on.

The LPG Indica’s engine meets BSIII emission norms, and it can be upgraded to meet Euro IV norms. The car will be available in GLE and GLS versions, with prices ranging between Rs 3.27 lakh to Rs 3.42 lakh, ex-showroom Delhi.
