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. 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.
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.
