The sleek body design comes coupled with customised features such as multiple optimized semi-sleeper and seater layouts, broad seats with a 135 degree recline, ehad flaps, high ceiling, reading lights, individual control overhead racks, AC, etc. making it a highly luxurious ride.
To add to these, a 2LCD/DVD combo entertainment system, on-board refrigerator, mobile charging points, public address system make it a truly lavish travel experience.
The Tata Divo, expected to go live by January 2012 starts with an ex-showroom price tag of Rs. 66 lacs (BSIII Version).
Likewise, the Tata Starbus Ultra is a dream come true for intra city travellers that include office goers, hotel guests, tourists, school children, etc. Primarily preordained for intra-city travel, the high end luxury variant of the Tata Starbus Ultra is also convenient for inter-city travel.
This is the first bus under its category that provides for a front door in front of the front axle, thereby providing more seating giving a better RoI to the operator. It is designed using the reliable Tata 497 engine as a result of which, higher fuel efficiency and lower NVH provides optimal results to the operator.
Currently available in all leading Tata showrooms, the ex-showroom price for the BSIII Version starts at Rs. 15 lacs.
