Budget-priced Tatas target small business users

TATA has launched three budget-priced derivatives of the Loadbeta light commercial range targeted at business users operating small fleets. The Loadbeta Access 2.0D pick-up and 2.0D van are available at £8,219 - a saving of more than £900 each - and the Gurkha Nepal 2.0D dual purpose vehicle, based on the standard Gurkha, costs £8,495, saving £1,900.

Sales and marketing director David Bray said: 'Traditionally, the Loadbeta pick-up has been our best performer, but now the Loadbeta van costs the same we anticipate tremendous demand for them both. The new pricing structure will help re-establish Tata at the forefront of budget-priced light commercials. The models are far from basic, with power-assisted steering and a tilt-adjustable column, a stereo radio/cassette player, five-speed gearbox and a Peugeot-derived engine.' The vehicles all come with a three-year/60,000-mile warranty.
