Around two years back, Force Motors had unveiled its next-gen shared mobility platform, codenamed T1N. Both ICE and EV variants of the new-gen van were showcased at 2020 Auto Expo. Apparently, launch was delayed due to the pandemic.
While the electric version may take some time to reach the assembly line, serial production has commenced for ICE variant of Force Motors Urbania van. It will soon be available at select Force Motors commercial vehicle dealerships across metros and mini-metros. Ahead of that, a new video reveals the exterior and interior details for new-gen Urbania.
