With India’s market going down in the small commercial vehicle segment, Tata Ace has emerged as one of the most profitable entities in the industry covering most of the market.

Tata Ace is available in 13 variants which make this product capable of fulfilling a number of needs across various business niches like cash van, goods transportation, etc. With so many options available, the buyers also get their choice of power and torque according to the business requirements.

Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) Range - 1,285 kg - 2,100 kg

Wheelbase - 1,285 mm and 2,100 mm

Mileage - 21.9 kmpl

Engine and Performance

Available in four engine options, namely, Single Cylinder Naturally Aspirated Water Cooled (a), Tata 275 IDI 2-Cylinder (b), 4-Stroke 2 Cylinder Direct Injection Common Rail (c) and 800cc 2-Cylinder DICOR (d), Ace produces power in the range of 11.3 bhp @ 3,000 rpm to 40 bhp @ 3,750 rpm and torque in the range of 31.6 Nm @ 1,600 - 1,800 rpm to 94 Nm @ 2,000 - 2,500 rpm. The vehicle displays an engine displacement of 611cc and 702cc for engine options ‘a’ & ‘b’ and 800cc for engine options ‘c’ and d’.

With common Single Plate, Dry Friction type clutch and 5-speed gear transmission box for engine option ‘a’ and 6-speed gear transmission box for rest of the options, Tata Ace family has the highest and lowest gradeability of 30% and 10%, while the top speed lies in the range of 50 - 90 km/h.

Vehicle Built and Load Capacity

The deck body is the sole option available for all the Tata Ace variants with wheelbase options of 1,650 mm for engine option ‘a’ that is, Tata Ace Zip, and 2,100 mm for rest of the 12 variants. The corresponding turning radius for wheelbases is 3,500 mm and 4,300 mm with the only exception being Tata Ace Mega having a turning radius of 4,900 mm.

The dimensions like overall length, width, height and ground clearance for Ace family is in the range of 3,020 - 3,835 mm, 1,480 - 1,500 mm, 1,800 - 2,360 mm and 140 - 175 mm. Coming to the load capacity, the Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) range of Tata Ace is from 1,285 to 2,100 kg with kerb weight between 685 to 1,070 kg and payload capacity from 600 to 1,030 kg.

Handling and Suspension

Deprived of power steering, Tata Ace Zip has Mechanical Rack and Pinion Steering, while the rest of the Ace family gets the same Mechanical steering with a variable ratio between 20.5 - 24.5 and 380 mm diameter. Although maneuvering Ace is not very difficult, but power steering has its own advantages.

For the suspensions, Ace Zip has MacPherson Strut at the front and Coil Spring with Semi-Trailing Arm and Hydraulic Telescopic Shock Absorbers at rear. the rest of the variants are equipped with Parabolic Leaf Springs at front and rear both, except for two Dicor and one Mega variants, which have Semi Elliptical Leaf Springs with Anti Roll Bar at the rear. The Ace Mega variant also has Semi Elliptical Leaf Springs with Anti Roll Bar as front suspension, and not the Parabolic Leaf Springs type.

Helping the suspension is Ace’s axle which is different in different variants. There is Rigid front axle on all but Forged I Beam Reverse Elliot Type for Ace Zip and Rigid axle at rear for Ace Zip, Hypoid Gear for Dicor and Mega, and Live rear axle for rest of the variants.

Braking and Safety

All the variants in the Ace family mostly get Dual Circuit Hydraulic Activated brakes with the disc at the front and drum at the rear. Also, there are separate Cable Operated Mechanical Linkages parking brakes acting on rear wheels. This combination works well to let Ace’s driver stop the vehicle at high speeds and load full to its capacity, irrespective of the terrain. Further safety has been improved with features like fog lights, seat belts, tubeless tyres, rigid body structure, robust frame and best in class material used to build the whole body.

Design and Comfort

Talking aesthetically, the Tata Ace family has set the standards for others to follow but that was long ago and now its contemporaries are giving tough competition to it. Features like headlamps, cabin structure and overall design are actually not very old, but yes, some improvement is required and Tata is working on it with timely updates of different variants. The cabin, too, is very rich with features like adjustable driver seat, driver information display, cozy seats, and spacious interiors to make the short trips not so boring.
