In 2010, the ACE, the chota hathi, family got bigger with the entry of its Micro truck - Tata ACE Zip. Although smaller than its cousins ACE, popularly known as the chota hathi, and Super ACE, Zip is a small yet smart micro truck. With a payload capacity of 600 Kg and an unbelievable turning radius of 3500 Mm, this small cargo truck becomes the answer to the never ending problems of narrow alleyways and heavy traffic.

Powered by a 611 cm3 water-cooled engine, you can say goodbye to the problems of overheating and breakdowns. Higher gradeability and torque allows the Zip to rule the roads regardless of terrain or incline. Falling under the small commercial vehicle umbrella of Tata Motors, this half ton truck lives up to the promise of durability and performance. A warranty of 36,000 km or 12 months backed up by 1200 service touch points, makes it a sound investment for your business. The Ace Zip colours are vibrant and together with the stylish design makes is a definite eye catcher.
