      Tata Indigo eCS Non-Stop Endurance Drive by Autocar India

      Tata Indigo eCS NonEndurance Drive

      The Tata Indigo eCS has not only surpassed its contemporaries, but has also achieved what no other car in India has done! Tata Motors, in association with Autocar, set on a journey to test the Tata Indigo eCS in the real world. A distance of over 14,000km in 15 days. Driving non-stop to cover the four extremities of the country; from Koteshwar in the West to Kibithu in the East, from northern Kashmir to southern-most Kanyakumari





      We drive non-stop in a Tata Indigo eCS through the four corners of India and enter the record books - 14,000km in 15 days!

      Are you sure of this ? not every car can take abuse like TATAs can take. We can see many stories of maruti , Skoda etc. being broke down. Hats off to TATA Indigo for completing this trip

      I mean to say not only maruti and skoda. those were just examples and brand names which i remembered and did not mean to offend any maruti or skoda owners. IN team-bhp forums I read some ownership report of Skoda cars being stranded due to issues. For Hyundai, maruti and even TATA cars also i have seen some ownership reports of cars broke down. What I mean to say was that cars have mechanical parts and any car can break down. Will search and give links to those stories when i have time . I had a maruti Zen which I sold before 1 year. I had many problem in it often it breaks down in my last year of ownership. I had maintained it very well and doing regular service as well.

      nothing like that, i am only wondering if there were ay such stories that i haven't come across, such stories on forums are well documented, and since you are relatively older member i was wondering if there were any such stories on this forum

      This one is definitely true by all means. And even then, TATA brand is stilll very well there standing by the competitors! This speaks a lot about less number of break-downs, ie. reliability! I appreciate!

      This feat doesn't prove that Tata cars are better than others. However, they have proved that their engines can take a lot of continuous abuse contradicting the people's opinion that Tata makes shitty engines.

      The Tata Indigo eCS enters Limca Book of Records! Records a non-stop nation-wide endurance drive, across 19 states, covering over 14,000 kms, in just 15 days

      Endurance Record:

      • Best fuel economy recorded: 41.14 kmpl
      • Average fuel economy: 18.7 kmpl
      • Total time spent behind the wheel: 342 hours
      • Longest time spent in the car at a stretch: 96 hours
      • Maximum distance covered in a single stretch: 998 km
      • Average distance covered in 24 hours: 933.8 km
      • Lowest temperature driven in: -4°C
      • Highest temperature driven in: 48°C



      The Tata Indigo eCS sets new endurance record and enters the Limca Book of Records with a remarkable feat of a non-stop nation-wide mileage run; touching all four gateways - from Koteshwar in West to Kibithu in East, from Kashmir in the North to Kanyakumari in the South, crossing 19 states and union territories, covering 14,000 kms in just 15 days.

      Speaking on this remarkable achievement, Mr. Ranjit Yadav, 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."

      In February 2012, Tata Motors flagged-off an epic journey of a non-stop, nation-wide mileage & endurance run to challenge the Tata Indigo eCS in its efficiency and endurance. Tata Motors and the Autocar India team have been associated with KPMG to validate the results of mileage and the endurance drive, by tracking distance on GPS. 13 auto experts from Autocar India drove the robust Tata Indigo eCS, through challenging terrains and in different climatic conditions, pushing the mean machine to its limits and deservingly earned it a national record in the Limca Book of Records.
