Eicher Trucks & Buses introduces industry first truck with AMT in 16t category

In an industry first move, Eicher Trucks & Buses, part of VE Commercial Vehicles Limited, has introduced state-of-the-art AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) technology in the 16T category- Eicher Pro 3016 AMT. It is equipped with an Intelligent Shift Control Actuator that automatically performs clutch and shift operations that eliminate the need to use the clutch and shift gears manually. The Pro 3016 AMT comes with Auto and Manual modes along with Transmission drivability features, that is, Power mode for time-bound deliveries and Eco mode for fuel-efficient operations. With this new development, Eicher further reinforces its vision of driving modernization in commercial transportation in India and in the developing world.

The biggest advantage of Eicher Pro 3016 AMT is that it comes with additional driving comfort over manual transmission-equipped models. The elimination of a clutch pedal frees drivers from gear-shifting, reduces stress and fatigue and minimizes performance gap between skilled and less experienced drivers.

Pro 3016 AMT has been equipped to address challenges around driver safety, comfort and protection of cargo, thus ensuring fast and efficient movement of goods. This makes the vehicles apt for variety of applications such as ecommerce, consumer goods, parcel & courier, pharmaceuticals, industrial goods, agriculture produce, poultry and dairy products.

Commented Rama Rao A S, Executive Vice President, Sales, Marketing and Aftermarket, Heavy Duty Trucks, VE Commercial Vehicles, "Eicher has always been a pioneer in providing technologically superior solutions to its customers as per market demands. Today, we are introducing AMT in the value truck range for 16 tons. Pro 3016 has successfully made a unique position for itself in the competitive 16-ton segment, and this technologically advanced truck will be a game changer for the commercial vehicle industry."

"Fuel efficiency is a plus in the all new Eicher Pro 3016 AMT besides comfort, safety, driver efficiency and total cost of ownership of the truck. AMT allows optimized gear shifting that contributes to a fuel efficient and comfortable drive and low maintenance, thus improving drivers' overall turnaround time, eliminating shocks to the driveline, and allowing smooth movement of cargo," he added.

The Pro 3016 AMT trucks are being manufactured in the Eicher Trucks and Buses facility in Pithampur, Madhya Pradesh, where Eicher produces its complete range of 4.9T to 55T commercial vehicles.
