It is not available in automatic transmission version. Manual grarbox is used and is efficient in operation and very reliable for long term utility. Also, fitting a automatic transmission would not only increase overall cost of vehice by say around 60,000 Rs or so. It would also result in additional fuel consumption. One has to take care of probable maintenance charges in long term utility. Considering the expected utility and targetted customers and areas of utility. Manual transmission is good enough.
