The Tata Altroz has recently managed to achieve a mention in the India Book of Records as its owner completed a journey of 1,603 km in just 24 hours. Read more about it here.
Recently, Tata Altroz has entered the India Book of Records. The premium hatchback has covered a distance of 1,603 km in just 24 hours. The name of the owner of this Tata Altroz is Mr Devjeet Saha, who attempted the record run in his car. Mr Saha stays in Pune and has completed a 24-hour round trip between Satara and Bengaluru and then he came back to Pune.
He started his journey on 15th December and finished it on 16th December, the next day. We are not sure if it is petrol or diesel trim of the Altroz. But definitely, it is not the turbocharged petrol mill, which was launched early this year.
Mr Devjeet Saha, who drove the Tata Altorz said, “I am humbled to have been given the opportunity to embark on this landmark journey and am honored to have been inducted into the India Book of Records. This feat would not have been possible without the trustworthy Tata Altroz and the very helpful team at Tata Motors. The Altroz proved to be the very class-defining product that we all have known it to be, by way of its exceptional performance on this long journey. The ride and handling of the car made the voyage not only comfortable but also an exhilarating one. I would like to extend my compliments to Tata Motors for continuing to provide its customers with extraordinary products such as the Altroz.”
The India Book of Record has been maintaining a track of all the records that are attempted in India since 2006. It is the only book to have Chief Editors from seven countries such as Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Bangladesh, USA, Indonesia and Nepal. Talking of the Tata Altroz, the premium hatchback rivals the likes of Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Hyundai i20, VW Polo and more in its segment. Mechanically, it derives power from three different powertrain options- 1.2-litre NA petrol, 1.2-litre turbocharged petrol and 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel engine. Currenlty, it is offered with a 5-speed MT only. The automaker is yet to offer the option of an automatic gearbox in the premium hatchback. Moreover, Tata has also planned to introduce an electric version of the car in the Indian market.
