The video has been shot from the Tata Hexa and uploaded by Power Stroke PS. The Kia Seltos seen in the video can be seen with temporary number plates with a red background. The Seltos can be seen cruising at high speeds on the highway and at one point of time, the video also shows the speedometer of the Tata Hexa, which indicates a speed more than 100 km/h.
