These models are powered by the proven 5.7-litre SGI engine generating peak power of 180hp and torque of 650Nm, come with a modular architecture and offer a range of up to 1,000 km.

India’s first truck with Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS)

Tata Motors is the pioneer in introducing safer and smarter vehicles in India. Since its launch in 2010, the top-of-the-line Tata Prima range has continually set benchmarks for comfort, styling, safety, ergonomics and ease of operations. Introduced in the new Prima is India’s first advanced driver active and passive safety features of Collision Mitigation System (CMS), Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS) developed with extensive validation, especially for Indian operating conditions. Vehicle also offers additional safety features like Driver Monitoring System (DMS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).

The new Prima range also comes with more ergonomically redesigned cabin offering better driving comfort and with best-in-class conveniences and features for enhanced driver and vehicle safety. These purposeful enhancements were made in collaboration with stakeholders across the entire logistics value chain with the objective of enabling higher productivity, especially during long hauls. An in-depth study was conducted to curate insights from transporters, drivers as well as end customers following which the design and engineering teams at Tata Motors worked holistically to add a range of cutting-edge technologies to create another new benchmark.

These enhancements will significantly lower accidents, increase driving comfort and facilitate safer cargo movement across the country.

New launches in I&LCV: Since conceptualising light trucks for the Indian market in 1986, Tata Motors I&LCV range has significantly grown in size, scale, presence and popularity. Renowned for their robust build, efficiency and the variety of applications they can be used for, Tata Motors I&LCV vehicles have helped enhance profit potential for customers. Offered with 4-18 tonne GVW, this range is the ideal choice for both last mile as well as medium to long haul with a variety of engine & cabin options befitting the duty cycle requirement.

The seven new fuel-efficient diesel and CNG trucks and tippers, under the FE Series, offer better application-oriented solutions with more options of vehicle weight and deck lengths. Designed to enhance the profit potential of their owners as well as to improve the driveability and durability, these trucks incorporate key technological advancements including optimised drivelines, low viscous rear axle oil, e-viscous radiator fan, gearshift advisor and low rolling resistance tyres.
