In India, Force Motors is known for manufacturing vans, tractors, buses and people movers. That said, the company has forayed into lifestyle segment too with Gurkha SUV. Other ventures by Force Motors are making engines, axles and transmissions for German car manufacturers like Mercedes Benz and BMW in India.

Force Motors recently launched Urbania van at a dealer meet held in Indore. Prices start from Rs 28.99 lakh. This is applicable for the medium wheelbase variant (3615 mm) that can accommodate 13 passengers + 1 driver. Force Motors have now officially opened bookings for the same.

Bookings are only accepted at select Force Motors Commercial Vehicle dealers. The ones in the metros and mini metros. The nominal booking amount is Rs. 1 lakh. Authorized dealers list to collect bookings is available on the company’s website.

Back in the good times before Covid-19 monstrosity, Force had showcased a new platform for its future vans. It was called T1N and it was designed to meet future mobility demands and also compatible with electrification. Force Motors had showcased both ICE and EV versions of this T1N Van at 2020 Auto Expo.

Variants

This is the production version of that prototype. Everything except the Force logo is carried over from the concept. In that place, boldly written Urbania lettering dominates the front grille. It complies with crash, rollover and pedestrian safety regulations and gets driver and co-driver airbags as well.

As compared to vans we are used to in India, Urbania is very sharp and in line with global vans. It gets a much nicer bumper. Headlights now get projector elements along with a large “C” LED DRL. Along the side, it gets stuck glass instead of sliding glass which makes it instantly more premium. Same holds true for Cruiser and Gurkha as well.
