Tata Glade (Kite) test mule crashed on Pune – Bangalore National Highway

Tata Motors is working on an entry level hatchback and car these days codenamed Kite. The hatchback adaptation is supposedly to be called Glade, while the sedan will be called Boom. It was the hatchback Glade which was as of late included in a mishap on the Pune – Bangalore National Highway.


The mishap happened a couple of minutes prior to when Rushlane peruser Yashanand, who was headed to Flame Institute saw it. He said that there were two Tata Glade hatchbacks, both of which were influenced in the mishap. Of the two, one got intensely harmed, while the other got away with minor scratches. Driver and occupants of both the Tata test mules escaped unharmed.

Talking about the mischance, Yashanand says that the two cars were heading towards Bangalore. Both Tata Kite test mules were going at a decent cruising pace of around 60-80 kmph. Because of the development work of flyovers on this specific stretch, there are numerous iversions. It is at one such diversion, this mishap occurred. What makes it more risky is the non-appearance of road lights.


At the point when the Tata test mules took one such diversion, they were unconscious what was in store. All of a sudden, a truck rolled in from the flyover development side on the left, and hit them hard. One of the Test mule’s front right wheel fell off the axle because of the effect, while the other car had sufficient time to brake, and spared itself from a much harm.

Tragically, despite the fact that the truck driver acknowledged it was his oversight, he turned around his truck, and moved it out of the harmed Tata Kite’s way. He then proceeded with his way towards Bangalore.

As it was pitch dark, the two harmed Tata cars were currently stranded amidst the street. The second car figured out how to move itself out of the street, and stopped as an afterthought. The driver then secured the car. The other car stood stranded.


To be offered in both petrol and diesel motor choices, the new Kite hatchback will include a 1.2 liter petrol motor having top force of 75 bhp. Its diesel partner will be fueled by a 1.05 liter turbocharged diesel motor offering 64 bhp top force.

Anticipated that would be dispatched in the not so distant future, Tata Glade will sit underneath Tata Bolt. It will match any semblance of Maruti Celerio, and could take a stab at a beginning cost of sub Rs 4 lakhs.
