The Tata 407 is a light commercial vehicle manufactured by Tata Motors. Launched in 1986, in 2011 the 407 model sold more than 500,000 units.[1] The 407 has a payload of 2.25 tonnes, an overall length of 4.7 metres, and a turning circle radius of 5.5 metres. Tata purchased all of the pressing tools for Steyr's 591/691-series of trucks in the mid-eighties, a truck which was itself derived from the 1967 Hanomag F-series.


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 S. A. 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]


TATA launched 407 compressed natural gas (CNG) engine option in 2009 and diesel engine option in 2010 after realizing the huge potential in both the market. [3]
