The Tata Xenon pick-up truck has been spotted in Malaysia – the above solitary on-the-road shot comes from reader Ani B Cat, and shows the Telcoline successor’s unique upswept shoulder line.

But the double-cab’s not the only one here – a single-cab has also been photographed at the JPJ car park, displaying its unpainted front bumper and grille, simpler wheels and huge eight-by-four-feet flatbed with drop sides.

The Tata Xenon is powered either by a 72 hp/223 Nm 3.0 litre intercooler turbodiesel or an 85 hp/250 Nm 3.0 litre DICOR common-rail diesel. Gearbox is a five-speed manual.

DRB-Hicom has a collaboration with Tata Motors via their wholly-owned unit USF-Hicom, for both fully-imported (CBU) and locally-assembled (CKD) Tata commercial vehicles.
