India sure knows how to do small (and cute) right. So you wouldn’t normally describe a truck as “cute,” but in the case of Tata’s Magic Iris and Ace Zip, we think you’ll agree that it’s okay this one time.

Green and inexpensive, these mini trucks are designed for “deep penetration goods movement.” Made from safe steel, they come equipped with 12-inch micro tires, a turning radius of 3.5 meters, and a 611-cc water-cooled engine that puts out 11 horsepower.

To get the job done, the Ace Zip pickup truck as a payload is 600 kg. According to Tata, it also features “a sleek steering wheel, comfortable seats and a roomy cabin, ensuring that the driver has a fatigue free experience, resulting in higher productivity and a significantly superior earning opportunity for the operator.”

The Magic Iris covered truck can seat three to four people, and both trucks come with a 36,000-km or 12-month warranty.

Would you buy a Magic Iris or an Ace Zip? Let us know in the comment section below.
