The homegrown Indian car manufacturing legend, Tata, has now opened its refreshed and celebrated SUV the Safari Storme in Nepal at the price of 37.85 Lakhs.

With the launch of the Storme, Tata has expanded their collection in Nepal.
The Nepal version of the Storme is no different from what we have here, looks are exactly the same. Now the Safari is a combination of luxury and comfort, and can really take a beating.
