Tata Motors has launched a range of world standard trucks comprising multi-axle, tractor trailers, tippers, mixers and special application vehicles. Besides India, the range will also be gradually introduced in South Korea, South Africa, the SAARC countries and the Middle East. The powertrain option stretches from 150PS to 560PS, with suitable engines, transmissions and axles of different makes. Additional features on offer include automated transmissions and air suspension. The capacity of the trucks can be from 10 tonnes to 75 tonnes Gross Combination Weight (GCW), to meet a wide mix of usages.


“The developing infrastructure in India makes it possible for transporters to reap the benefits of trucks with higher power, speed and carrying capacity. The new range from Tata Motors will meet those needs and will help us penetrate international market more effectively and competitively,” Tata Sons and Tata Motors Chairman Ratan Tata said.


The project has been jointly developed by Tata Motors and its two subsidiaries – Tata Daewoo Commercials Vehicle Co (South Korea) and Tata Motor European Technical Centre (UK). The company has harnessed the best of the inputs in technology, styling, engines, transmission, suspension, chassis, chassis frames, fabrication and dyes from partners based in countries like Italy, Germany, Sweden, the US, Japan and South Korea.
