Pune based automotive major Force Motors (India’s largest van maker) revealed the first next generation shared mobility platform that has been simultaneously designed and developed for both Internal Combustion Engines and 100% Electric Drive.
The project codenamed T1N was triggered about four years ago with the objective to develop a truly world class shared mobility platform that would be way ahead of current offerings and raise the bar in terms of passenger comfort, convenience and safety to International standards.
The T1N is the first vehicle in this category in the country offering crash and rollover compliance with air bags for driver and co-driver even though current Indian legislation does not mandate them. In addition, T1N comes with large ventilated disk brakes on all four wheels with ABS, EBD, EDTC and ESP offering unmatched safety for its passengers.
The T1N with its next generation, international styling and body design is in a class by itself and in the same league as leading international offerings. The looks are further enhanced by first in segment signature day running LEDs, first in segment projector lamps and first in segment tail lamps with light guide technology, all making it a head turner whichever way one looks at it.
The T1N platform has been designed with a 2-box construction keeping the engine fully outside ensuring least NVH in passenger compartment. For the first time in this segment independent front suspension with transverse parabolic springs has been offered, giving it best in class ride quality.
T1N is powered by a new and more powerful BS6 compliant, Common Rail Diesel engine, offering peak torque of 350Nm. The platform will also offer BS6 CNG variant as also a class leading full electric version.
This new platform is underdoing final validation and homologation processes. A new state of the art facility, with body shop with robotic and laser welding facilities is being set up at the Pithampur works. These vehicles would be showcased at the forthcoming Delhi Auto Expo 2020. It is expected to be available for sale by the end of the year.
