The new Tata Signa 3118.T offers a unique blend of value proposition in terms of both, revenue and operating cost, for its customers.
Tata Motors launched the new Tata Signa 3118.T, which the company claimed is India’s first 3-axle 6×2 (10-wheeler) rigid truck with 31 tonnes Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW).
The Tata Signa 3118.T offers a unique blend of value proposition in terms of both, revenue and operating cost, for its customers.
With a 3,500kg higher certified payload than the corresponding 28-tonne GVW rigid truck and equivalent cost of operations with similar fuel, tyre and maintenance cost as a 28-tonne truck, the company said, this product is conceived to significantly enhance the net operating profit for its customers by 45 per cent over a 28-tonne truck.
“The incremental investment on the Signa 3118.T, over the corresponding 28-tonne truck, can be recovered in less than one year of operations and followed by years of incremental earnings, ” added the company.
The new rigid truck is suitable for all types of tanker applications – petroleum, oil and lubricants (POL), chemicals, bitumen, edible oil, milk and water, as well industrial good such as packed LPG cylinders, lubricants, agricultural products, just to name a few.
