Force One is all set to be launched on the 19 August. The Force One will have best-in-class legroom and reliability,” said Mr Prasan Firodia, Managing Director, Force Motors. He added that in the first year the company would look to sell 4,000 units, while in the second year it is targeting up to 9,000 units.
To put it in other words, “if Tata can come up with Aria, well we can “FORCE” our way in too. The vehicle will be a entry to mid range SUV trying to gun for the huge TATA SAFARI or the immensely successful Mahindra Scorpio. With the Indian buyer with the ‘bigger wallet and bigger size’ in mind I feel if Force can market this vehicle by carving a niche market as a mid range SUV for itself, they will have a lot to smile about.
The Scorpio is the old stallion now and Safari has its own famous niggling issues. With pricing expected to be around Rs. 12 to 15 lakhs the ARIA needs to be worried too. Force Motors has borrowed its 2.2 litre mill and transmission licensed by MERCEDES BENZ. Lotus are doing up the chassis. So,I feel “FORCE can look upto this ONE”
