Tata Motors Indica eV2 LS Features & Specifications, ARAI Mileage and Price

Tata Motors is still going strong with its ‘more car per car’ product and brought out an eV2 variant of Indica in 2011. The hatchback which is more than 15 years old now is also claimed (by its company) to be the most fuel efficient car in India. And several road tests have shown that the eV2, driven by 1396 cc 4 cylinder diesel engine, does manage to give a fuel economy of 15.2 to 19.5 km/litre – this is praiseworthy.

Here we go with the description of styling, comfort and safety features of the LS variant for this hatch:

Exteriors

When compared to its older models, few cosmetic modifications are noticed on the new eV2. The triple slat chrome plated grille on the face looks good in front of the bonnet with diverging swage lines. Painted in body colour for better aesthetics, the front bumper is broad and has sleekly sculpted corners. The motorised clear lens headlamps also look striking. Outside rear view mirrors or ORVMs for the LS version are body coloured and have metal strips. The outer door handles are in black plastic. Radial tubeless 155/80 R13 tyres are used as standard for this base variant.

At the rear the long tail lamps are vertically integrated on the sides of the boot lid and the broad bumper is painted in body colour. The four body colours available for Tata Indica eV2 BS4 model include Spanish Tan, Sea Blue, Jet Silver and Mint White.

Interiors

The black and beige cabin has adequate space for 5 adults. Ebony black dashboard and the four spoke steering wheel contrast well against the light shade of fabric upholstery for the seats. The gear lever knob has a silver tip. Being the base variant, LS trim does not get a car infotainment system. The hooded instrument console has white numbers and red needles on its chrome lined black dials. There is no tripmeter on the panel. Cabin illumination comprises front cabin lights with spot lights. Air con vents in the centre are rather small and their knobs lack a chunky feel. But they are simple to use. A power outlet has been provided in the front.

The feel of refinement is missed when this cabin is compared against those of some other cars in competition but space factor is certainly a positive trait of Indica eV2.

Comfort Features

Indica eV2 LS is an entry level hatch and does not come with a long list of comfort features. It is equipped with an air conditioning system. But seats have fixed lumbar support and even the driver’s seat cannot be adjusted for height. The power steering wheel is fixed at its position and the ORVMs need to be manually set for proper view. Window glass for all 4 doors needs to be manually rolled down.

Although it is not equipped with gadgets and features for much comfort, the good thing about this cabin is its spaciousness. There is ample legroom on all seats. Map pockets have been sculpted on doors and there is a glovebox with adequate space for papers and little things. The boot also has volume of 220 litres which is sufficient to place luggage for a small family trip.

Safety Features

Once again, only general safety elements are part of the package. Three point ELR seatbelts are provided for front seat passengers. Rear doors have fiddle-proof child safety locks. The car has a collapsible steering wheel column to prevent serious injury to the driver in case of a collision. Another safety feature is the high mounted lamp that, in dark, makes Indica eV2 LS more visible to vehicles following it.

This diesel powered eV2 BS 4 - LS variant costs Rs 4.46 lakhs (ex showroom price). Despite its plain interiors and basic equipment this car has quite a few takers in India simply because it is one of the most fuel efficient options available in its segment.
