While Tata Harrier is the only SUV in the news from Tata since the past few months, everybody forgot about the Tata Hexa. Well till now it’ a very competent and good vehicle. That is the reason why Bangladesh Army has ordered more than 200 units of the Tata Hexa for addition into their stable.
Tata vehicles going to the army is not a new thing, while India army ordered lots of Tata Safari to carry on the duty and replace the age-old Maruti Gypsy, Bangladesh army has gone for the more modern Tata Hexa. The Tata Hexa supplied to the Bangladesh army is the four-wheel drive variant.
We all know when a car is chosen for army duties, it has to pass through various set of tests. Tata states that the Hea passed all the rigorous testing and won against many competitive SUV brands to serve Bangladesh army. Tata has been known to make pretty tough and safer vehicles, after the Nexon 5 star rating we know that Tata vehicles are stronger compared to the competition.
Mr Sujan Roy – Head – International Business, Passenger Vehicles, Tata Motors said, “Bangladesh is a key market for us and this order is a clear sign of Tata Motors’ commitment and growing success in the market. We are exploring multiple avenues to work closely with the Bangladesh armed forces and look forward to a long and rewarding partnership for both parties.”
Tata Motors has been in the Bangladesh market selling passenger vehicles since 2012. In fact, it is one of the top two best-selling passenger brands in Bangladesh. They sell Tata Nexon, Tata Tiago and Tata Indigo over there. Though Tata Hexa is not available to private customers and is only exclusive for the army.
Powering the vehicle is a 2.2-litre Varicor 400 diesel motor which makes 154 hp power and 400 Nm torque. A six-speed manual transmission is on offer.
