The Ace XL gets a 702cc, 2-cylinder engine that produces 16PS of power and 39Nm of torque. The engine comes mated to a 4-speed manual transmission and the duo helps the SCV reach a top speed of 60kmph. Like the Ace Mega XL, the Ace XL comes with an 8.2 ft long loading deck. However, because of the smaller engine, the maximum load capacity is clocked at 710kg.

The company has given the Ace Zip XL an increase in load body length from the current 1,685mm to 1,927mm and a broader loading deck area of 6.3 ft x 4.9 ft. Other dimensions include a 10-litre fuel tank, 12-inch wheels and 150mm of ground clearance.
