Tata Motors’ premium hatchback Altroz has entered the India Book of Records, which is claimed to be the custodian of Indian records created since 2006. The Altroz covered a maximum distance of 1,603km in 24 hours, thereby setting a new Indian record.

This journey was undertaken by Devjeet Saha, a Pune-based motoring enthusiast, who completed a 24-hour round trip from Satara in Maharashtra to Bangalore in Karnataka and back to Pune between December 15 and 16, 2020. 

Commenting on the recognition, Devjeet Saha said, “This feat would not have been possible without the trustworthy Tata Altroz and the very helpful team at Tata Motors. The Altroz proved to be the very class-defining product by way of its exceptional performance on this long journey. The ride and handling of the car made the voyage not only comfortable but also an exhilarating one.”

Vivek Srivatsa – Head, Marketing, Passenger Vehicles Business Unit, Tata Motors said, “I would like to congratulate Devjeet Saha on accomplishing this feat. Since its inception, the Altroz has created new benchmarks in its segment through the medium of its appealing design, top-notch safety and thrilling performance. We are delighted that Saha chose the Altroz as his companion in embarking on the long journey to achieve this rare milestone. With this accomplishment, the Altroz has created yet another benchmark in the passenger vehicles segment.”

The Altroz celebrated its first anniversary last month with the launch of the Altroz iTurbo. Launched on January 22,2020, the Altroz has crossed sales of 50,000 units in the domestic market.
