The new Tata Vista price starts from Rs3.88 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) for the Safire petrol range and from Rs4.79 lakh for the Quadrajet diesel range (ex-showroom, Delhi)
Tata Motors today launched the new version of its premium hatchback, the Tata Vista. The new range will be available at Tata Motors dealerships from 1 September 2011.
The new Tata Vista comes with a front chrome grill, complemented with a triple barreled head lamp, for visibility in low-light conditions. The car has generous chrome package on the exteriors, sporty new alloy wheels and a new signature colour, Summer Sparkle. A mirror polished garnishing below the rear windshield adds to the distinctiveness of the exteriors.
The interiors, with soft feel dash board and door pads, too match the experience of a sedan. The 4-spoke steering wheel now sports audio controls, which controls a fully integrated 2-DIN music system. It offers connectivity via USB, auxiliary input and Bluetooth using the Blue 5 technology that helps pair up to 5 mobile phones. Outer rear view mirrors can be adjusted electrically using the joystick on the drivers side door pad and electrically operated HVAC controls add style and convenience.
The car will be powered by 1.3 litre common rail direct injection Quadrajet diesel engine and 1.4 litre MPFi Safire petrol engine with variable valve timing technology. The diesel engine delivers 75PS of max power at 4000 RPM, while the petrol engine delivers max power of 90PS at 6000RPM. The new Tata Vista delivers a mileage of 22.3 kmpl for diesel and 16.7 kmpl for petrol.
The other major addition is the Clutch-to-Start feature which ensures that one cannot crank the engine unless the clutch is fully pressed, hence there is no risk of re-crank if engine is on.
The new Tata Vista price starts from Rs3.88 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) for the Safire petrol range and from Rs4.79 lakh for the Quadrajet diesel range (ex-showroom, Delhi).
In July, MTNL had invited expression of interest from banks for providing long-term loans of Rs1,500 crore with a floating interest rate for seven years
State-owned telecom major Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd (MTNL) has raised Rs500 crore from various banks that will be used to repay debts and meet operational expenses.
"Out of the total loan amount of Rs1,500 crore, we have raised Rs500 crore from various banks and for the rest of the amount, we are still in talks with them (banks)," MTNL CMD Kuldip Singh said.
In July, MTNL had invited expression of interest (EoI) from banks for providing long-term loans of Rs1,500 crore with a floating interest rate for a tenure of seven years. It wanted to raise the funds to repay its debts and meet operational expenses.
The loan might be used to repay the loan MTNL had taken for buying 3G and BWA spectrum last year. The company is already in the process to restructure its Rs7,000 crore loan taken for buying 3G and BWA spectrum last year. The PSU plans to convert Rs3,000 crore loan into a long-term debt.
The company had already restructured Rs3,500 crore of debt, by repaying Rs500 crore and tying up with two banks for the remaining Rs3,000 crore. Delhi and Mumbai were the most expensive circles for 3G, with the bid for Delhi costing Rs3,316.93 crore and Mumbai Rs3,247.07 crore, against the reserve price of Rs320 crore each for both the metros.
Similarly for BWA, Delhi and Mumbai saw the highest bids at Rs2,241.02 crore and Rs2,292.95 crore, respectively. MTNL has already launched 3G mobile services.
MTNL has also joined hands with Shemaroo Entertainment to launch 2G and 3G value added services across Delhi and Mumbai. MTNL users will now be able to enjoy Live Prayers and will also now be able to watch their favourite movie on Movie Talkies, the company said.
On Wednesday, MTNL ended 1.87% down at Rs36.80 on the Bombay Stock Exchange, while the benchmark Sensex declined 1.29% to 16,248.98.
