the best offered cabin space with good diesel engine with good FE and lower maintaincnce, in the best lowest price available in market with cheap running cost and spares and services across nation is what makes TATA vehicles sell so much among taxi operators.
When a car starts selling as a taxi, people stop buying it.
The car loses heavily on resale, as people suspect it of being a taxi.
And the car is no longer respected or recommended to people.
A living example: Indica.
People stopped buying it as soon as taxi operators started buying it.
and go look at the resale of some of the indicas.
I dont think all 'taxi' cars can have bad resale. For instance, qualises and innovas have many buyers amd real good resale value. The indigp's resale might be bad, but the ikon's is not that bad. Note :Please continue the discussion in the tata taxis thread. Kind attn mods.
