BP Auto Spares India Speaks About the Iconic Tata Sumo

Tata Sumo is a well-known MUV designed for both civilian and military purposes. BP Auto Spares India speaks about this spectacular vehicle, which was launched in 1994, but is still considered as one of the most recognizable MUVs in India

When one thinks of any classic MUV, the first name that pops in the mind is the Tata Sumo. Originally launched as a 10 seater jeep, the Sumo has seen many changes over the years, but the fascination for this automobile has never waned. The CEO of BP Auto Spares India, a reputed Tata Spare parts dealer, explains why this vehicle is so admired by the Indian diaspora.

He says, “The Sumo was the first commuter vehicle that was designed entirely in India, and thus, offered a certain Indian-ness, that most other MUVs lacked.” He continued, “Moreover, the car was launched at a time when the market was saturated with foreign makes. The automobile quickly caught the attention of people, particularly those, who were looking for a family car. It was in such a high demand, that within 3 years of its launch, Tata Motors sold 1 lakh cars of this model.”

Commenting on the reason why the Sumo struck a chord with the Indian car owners, he said, “The brand name Tata is enough for people to take notice of a car. In addition to that, Sumo emerged as a champion of all vehicles available at that time in India. It suited every possible need that Indians had – from ferrying multiple people comfortably to driving off-road on adventure trips. Being an indigenous make, the car was affordably priced, and hence, was also well-received by the middle class of the society.’’

On the topic of what the future holds for this magnificent MUV, the CEO said, “The exteriors of the big utility vehicle haven’t changed much, although, the engine and other parts have been revamped to keep up with the changing times. What sets it apart from its rivals is its high ground clearance, which accounts for an impressive ride, even when it traverses through bad and bumpy roads. The fact that the Sumo is still in production even after two decades, with no sign of diminishing sales, I would say that there is a pretty chance that the Sumo will outlive most of its competitors.”
