It started life as a regular Tata Xenon pickup truck but now it tries to look like the impressive Energ-G-Force concept unveiled by Mercedes-Benz back in 2012 as part of the Los Angeles Auto Show Design Challenge. Those who worked on transforming the Xenon have applied a flashy orange matte paint (or wrap) and they even put the three-pointed star logo on the front grille as well as on the trunk lid.

While the original concept represented a vision of a 2025 G-Class, we can’t say the same thing about this replica but nevertheless the author has done a pretty good job mimicking the looks of the Ener-G-Force concept without having to spend a small fortune on bespoke components. Needless to say, the rear end was not accurately replicated since the original concept is a proper off-roader whereas the Xenon is a double cab pickup so it would have been very tricky to copy the design and would have required some significant investments.

You will notice the customized vehicle comes with flared wheel arches and chunky off-road tires while the beefy side bars make the vehicle look more muscular, especially when viewed from its side profile. Interestingly, the grey cover for the bed seems to be made from plastic and it incorporates a spoiler lip to make the Xenon look sportier, although it probably doesn’t suit the muscular body so well. Other enhancements include the roof-mounted auxiliary lights and a bulging hood which appears to have fake air vents.

Those side indicators mounted on the front fenders are trying to replicate the original look of the Ener-G-Force and we are curious whether the interior cabin has also gone through some changes to make this Xenon even more special.

It would be interesting to find out how much money the creator had to spend to turn the Tata Xenon double pickup truck into a fairly good replica of the 2012 concept.
