Tata Introduces the First 3-axle 6X2 Rigid Truck in India
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.
