Does the Indian market make sense for this van?

force urbania official websiteThe Force Traveler is the only other vehicle available in this segment. The Traveler is more like a bus, and it has little use as a personal vehicle. The Urbania aims to change that, and Force believes that this smaller, more ergonomic van will also find its way into some personal garages. Aside from this, Tata introduced the Winger many years ago, but it sold more commercially and less as a personal vehicle.
