The Tata Ace has been a little bit of a wonder.  It created a segment which is entirely its own and has been dominant what with it becoming a darling of the traders who need to carry things into narrow lanes and by lanes of cities.  Tata’s chief competitor Mahindra was not going to sit around twiddling its thumbs when Tata was selling in big numbers.  So they created the Maxximo but by then Tata has upped the ante and moved on to create the Tata Magic which is a passenger version used in rural areas and outskirts of big cities as a seven seater shared taxi.  Now Mahindra has been playing catch up again and have been testing the passenger version of the Maxximo with speculation now rife that it could be launched in the market as soon as today!!! Lets see if this is right.
