Indian Army to retire Gypsy after 27 years!

Alpha

Going to Neverland
found one pic from the lot sent by Jasdeep, a 4WD version. Still, we will have to get Kashish on this, he may have got better pictures of it.

From rear badging, it seems to be like the existing micro hybrid Scorpio vlx 4wd...costs upwards 12 lacs.
And this is not hybrid in true sense...the micro hybrid feature only automatically shuts off the engine if the car is idling in neutral for more than 5 secs. And switches back the engine once clutch is depressed.

Still far better than bare-bones Gypsy!

Army would never go for this option in its vehicle

Well this micro hybrid function can be switched off if one does not want engine to go in standby mode while idling. The car will behave like any normal one then. It's just a feature for conserving fuel while idling.
