  • The idea of the colourful Volkswagen as the quintessential Woodstock camper bus may be part of our collective imagination, but decades ago, India had its own desi version of the classic van.
  • Famous for producing classics such as the Matador and Hanseat, Tempo joined forces with the Indian company Bajaj Tempo Motors (which later became Force Motors) to produce Indian editions of its classic vans.
