While all of us own some or the other vehicles, there are some vehicles which make eyes turn whenever they step out on the roads. No, we are not talking about heavily modified cars, we are talking about government vehicles. In this article, we will take you through the 10 most used government vehicles in India. We will start from the vehicles which have been allotted to government officials and will eventually move on to some remarkable police vehicles.
Maruti Suzuki Ciaz
Starting our list with the one that is the most popular one among government vehicles nowadays. Almost all the government officials are seen using Maruti Suzuki Ciaz nowadays. Spotted most of the times in the white or the Nexa blue shade, Ciaz seems to be an absolute favourite for all the government employees.
Maruti Suzuki SX4
Before the government officials began travelling in Ciaz, there was the SX4. This sedan still stands strong among the most successful sedans in India and is still seen on the roads. Well, talking about government vehicles, Maruti Suzuki SX4 was the most used sedan in the past which has now passed on the legacy to the one we mentioned above – the Ciaz.
Maruti Suzuki Dzire
Yes, this list has also got a lot of Marutis. Continuing our list of government vehicles, we have the Maruti Dzire on our list. Along with CIaz, Dzire is another most commonly seen Maruti on the roads in form of government vehicles. Be it high-rank police officials or any other government official, Dzire forms a perfect pick for them.
Continuing our list of government cars, we finally have a car other than Maruti. Being an Indian brand, Bolero is one of my favourites on this list. This is because Bolero offers you an excellent road presence and therefore, seeing Bolero as a police/government vehicle is an absolute delight. An absolute masculine SUV with an Indian brand name. Does Bolero need something else to be a part of the police squad?
Maruti Suzuki Ertiga
We know Ertiga has received a facelift but if we want to look at Ertiga as a government vehicle, this is what comes to our mind. Many of you might have seen this generation of the Maruti Suzuki Ertiga. Especially in Delhi/NCR, we see the police using the Ertiga as a part of their fleet now. Apart from being a great MPV, Ertiga delivers great value for money.
Mahindra Scorpio is the synonym of police cars. Be it on-screen or off-screen, Scorpio is extensively used by the Indian police force. Mahindra’s top-selling SUV which is successful from the first generation itself is now an absolute favourite among the Indian policemen.
Hyundai Kona Electric
Even the Indian government is future-ready. Hyundai Motors has delivered many units of the EV to the Indian government which will be used soon in the government fleet. Well, that’s really a step ahead. Along with the Kona Electric, Tata Motors also delivered the Nexon EV to the Indian government.
An evergreen government vehicle! The Hindustan Ambassador forms the oldest one among the government vehicles. In our list of government vehicles, we needed to include the Ambassador because Laal Batti Waali Ambassador never gets old. Engine and specs don’t matter. Ambassador is the most long-lived government vehicle that India has ever had.
Tata Safari – a name which will again be a really common one in the market. In our list of government vehicles, we have the Safari because it is undoubtedly one of the best SUVs Indians have ever had. Moving ahead, people have many expectations from the upcoming safari too. Will it be able to make its way into the government fleet? What do you think? Let us know in the comments section below.
Last but not least, we have the Tata Xenon on our list of government vehicles in India. Mostly seen with the police forces, it is an excellent fit for the army too. Its versatile approach and utility make it the most value for money vehicle that the forces can use on any terrain!
These were the 10 government vehicles used in India. Which vehicle do you want the government to include in their fleet? Do let us know in the comments section below!
