Setting new benchmarks in India’s pickup truck segment, Tata Motors launched the Yodha 2.0, Intra V20 bi-fuel, and Intra V50 pickup trucks today. The trucks come with a rugged build and offer a high load-bearing capacity while being equipped with modern safety features. Tata Motors claims the three new pickup trucks are versatile enough for both rural and urban use.
The new Yodha 2.0, Intra V20 bi-fuel and Intra V50 are ideal to service the diverse mobility needs of the fast-growing agriculture, poultry and dairy sectors as well as the expanding delivery requirements of FMCG, e-commerce and logistics sectors. A low cost of ownership will make the pickup trucks appealing to small business owners who are looking to maximize their profits. In order to commemorate the launch, Tata Motors delivered 750 units of the pickup trucks to customers across the country.

Tata Yodha 2.0, Intra V20, Infra V50: All that you need to know
The Yodha 2.0 offers a payload capacity of 2,000 kg, the highest out of the three pickup trucks. It also features an updated design, Tata’s signature ‘Trust Bar’ and a new grille. Other payload options for the Yodha 2.0 include 1,200 kg, 1,500 kg, and 1,700 kg. The pickup truck is available in 4×4 and 4×2 configurations and comes in single cab and crew cab options.
The Intra V50 smart pickup truck offers a load-bearing capacity of 1,500 kg and has the largest deck length out of the three new offerings. Meant to be driven in all terrains, the Intra V50 has a high ground clearance and state-of-the-art cabin comfort. Tata asserts the V50 is ideal for urban and semi-urban areas.
The Intra V20 is India’s first bi-fuel commercial vehicle, available in Petrol+CNG configuration. It also offers the longest range out of all the three new pickup trucks, clocking 700 km. The lower operational cost of CNG will make the V20 attractive to a lot of buyers. With a 1,000 kg payload capacity, it isn’t as load-bearing as the other two new releases from Tata.
