Davao City Procures Additional 53 Units of Tata Ace Jeepney

Tata Motors Davao, which is operated by Davao Bonifacio Motors Incorporated, along with, Davao City Mayor, Rodrigo Duterte, turned over the second batch of Tata Ace Bata units with jeepney bodies yesterday to 53 barangays, with each barangay receiving one unit. The turn over ceremony was held at the People’s Park, Davao City.

The released 53 units of Tata Ace Bata Jeepney units are the second batch on top of the first 101 units initially released last March 2015 for the police stations of Davao City.

The Tata Ace Bata Jeepneys, will be used as emergency response vehicles for the City of Davao during times of calamity and to be used by the local government units for their day to day operations.

The Tata Ace “Bata” Jeepney is the best in its category for fuel efficiency with its efficient Diesel engine and a load capacity of 750kg. Best as a jeepney body variant, it can confidently brave both city and rural roads because of bigger tires, high ground clearance, independent suspension system with disc brakes and drum brakes for the front and rear, respectively. Safety is a big investment, so the Tata Ace has intrusion panels on the front doors, seat belts, and a crash-tested body from the front, roof and back.

Various body configurations can be used on the Ace, as well as a 2 year or 36,000 km warranty is included in every purchase thus making it a very versatile investment.


  1. Should have bought Mitsubishi L300's or similar Kia vehicles than this.

    1. you have to drive one of these tata to be able to know why L300 is better. this is not the right vehicle for rescue during calamities like flood but it can be useful for patrol duties or bringing equipment and people from point a to point b.

    2. Filipinoa have been using the reliable L300 from ambulances, school services, puv, and for business purposes. It's a vehicle that's proven it's capability and worth over the decades. It's also bigger and taller than the Tata. Similar kia vehicles are larger and more modern tan the mitsubishi but are less reliable and are more expensive.

    3. well unlike in manila, we don't have tall floods that are as high as small vehicles, this vehicle will serve its purpose just fine. these vehicles are not used in extreme conditions, just light duties like small transportation duties like hauling people from barangays, transporting government equipment like signages and giving assistance to the people like free rides if needed, btw we dont have typhoons here in davao, we already have kia k2700's as ambulances.

  2. ^Agree! Its under powered diesel vibrates like crazy and very third-world amenities... could have done better but I guess they are tied up to keeping the price under control...

  3. 429k is the price, compared to other brands like toyota, it's a steal.
