The Tata Ace, which is also known in Sri Lanka as the Tata DIMO Batta, can easily be considered as one of the most popular light commercial vehicles that you can buy within the island. First introduced to the world around 11 years ago in 2005, the Tata Ace became a revolutionary vehicle from its inception, with even some auto analysts claiming that that Ace had managed to create an entirely new light commercial vehicle category for itself. For a start, the Tata Ace is powered using a very moderate engine, which is a 702 cc, 2-cylinder locomotive that utilizes a manual transmission to move its drivetrain. This engine gives the Tata Ace the capability to produce more than 12 kW of power at just 3200 rpm, making it a very nifty performer on Sri Lankan roads.
