The Pune-based carmaker Force Motors has named Urbania as the name of its upcoming shared mobility platform. At the Dealers Meet in Indore, where a few dealers from India and outside were invited for a plant tour and test drives, the new Force Urbania platform name, codenamed T1N, was unveiled.

The COVID pandemic caused the Force T1N shared mobility van to be delayed from being displayed at the Auto Expo 2020. The new cutting-edge manufacturing facilities built for this platform have started running serial production. The initial batch of vehicles will be delivered to dealerships during the next two weeks.

Although current Indian law does not require airbags for the driver or co-driver, the Force Urbania is the first car in its class to offer crash and rollover compliance with airbags for the driver and co-driver. Latest car News The Van includes big ventilated disc brakes with ESP, ABS, EBD, and ETDC on all four wheels.

Global goals guided the creation of The Force Urbania. Only a few Middle Eastern, African, ASEAN, and South American markets will be targeted. According to the firm, the new Urbania will provide outstanding value compared to high-end products from Europe, the Far East, and the USA. To create the modular monocoque van and to establish a brand-new, cutting-edge production plant, the business has invested over Rs 1000 crores.

To enhance, hone, and validate this platform created in India, Force states that its team of developers for Urbania consulted with top technology professionals and subject matter specialists from all over the world, including those in Italy, Spain, the UK, Germany, Japan, and the USA. The Force Urbania has industry-first projector lamps, tail lamps with light-guiding technology, and distinctive day-running LEDs.

The Force Urbania platform’s 2-box design keeps the engine completely outside to minimise noise and vibration in the passenger area. Additionally, the car has a transverse spring-independent front suspension, a first for the sector. It is powered by a 115 horsepower, BS6 compliant, Common Rail Diesel engine with a peak torque of 350 Nm between 1400 and 2200 rpm derived from Mercedes.
