Models[edit]

The 407 model range includes trucks, tippers, pick-ups and vehicles for agri/food products, construction, light mining and services.

Tata's Cityride buses are based on the 407 and are available in 12-24 seat variants and following the company's joint venture with Marcopolo of Brazil in 2006, the 407 platform is now included in the Starbus range in a 24-seat variant and 12-18 seat luxury variants.

The EX-2 Refresh series was launched in 2009 with the 407 Pick-up having the shortest overall length, smallest turning circle with largest loading area and highest payload in the category.[2]

Engines[edit]

Engines fueled by compressed natural gas (CNG) became optional for the 407 in 2009, while common rail Diesel engines became available in the 407 in 2010.[3]
