Last seen at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo, the DC Eleron SUV made its presence felt at the Dilwale trailer premiere earlier this week.
Dilwale is Rohit Shetty’s upcoming Bollywood movie as a director. Known for directing crazy action stunt scenes involving cars, Rohit Shetty is also a proud owner of DC Avanti, which was also present at the premiere alongside Eleron.
Below is a video from the the Dilwale trailer premier. DC Eleron can be seen parked behind the starcast of the movie. You can also see the actors, including Director Rohit Shetty arriving at the venue in DC Avanti. Actors in the movie Dilwale include Shah Rukh Khan, Kajol, Varun Dhawan, Boman Irani, Kriti Sanon, Vinod Khanna, Johnny Lever and many more.
DC Eleron SUV is powered by a 2.0 liter petrol turbo engine which is rated at 265 hp max power and 360 Nm torque. Mated to automatic five speed transmission, this power is transmitted to all four wheels. DC claims that the Eleron has a top speed of 200 kmph and does a 0-100 kmph in 9 seconds.
Weighing 2.5 tonne, DC Eleron is 5055 mm long, 1965 mm wide, 1710 mm tall and has a wheelbase of 3090 mm. To add to this, there are 22 inch alloys which make the car look very intimidating on road. Built on a space frame with roll cage, its body features carbon composite two door three box and targa roof.
Being an SUV, DC Eleron gets a ground clearance of 240 mm, front track of 1550 mm and rear track of 1550 mm. For safety, DC has installed disc brakes with ABS on all four wheels. Apart from this, headlamp cluster features all-led treatment with bi-halogen lamps.
At the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo, DC had said that the Eleron will be launched soon at a price tag of INR 35 lakh. But as we know that has not happened. Considering that the Avanti has now been launched successfully, DC is preparing to launch the Eleron next. It may even feature in the movie Dilwale, gaining a fair deal of attention.
