Force Motors, formerly known as Bajaj Tempo Ltd., has launched its Force One, the company’s first sport utility vehicle.
The term Force One is reminiscent of India’s indigenous Formula One team. But it’s not related. Rather, the new SUV is built exclusively for Indian roads.
The Force One is equipped with a 2.2-liter diesel Daimler FMTech engine whose horsepower is equivalent to the reigning rivals Ford Endeavor and Tata Safari, its two main rivals.
Force One includes a complete safety package that includes ABS and multiple airbags.
