Tata Motors has doubled the warranty period on its entire range of heavy trucks, with 25 tonnes and higher gross vehicle weight, to four years.

The four-year warranty, applicable on the full range of tractor trailers, multi-axle trucks and tippers of 25 tonnes gross vehicle weight (GVW) and above, covers the vehicle’s driveline (engine, gear box and rear axle) as a standard offer.

In addition, the warranty on the rest of the vehicle has been enhanced from 18 months to 24 months, the company said in a statement.

Tata Motors accounts for two out of every three tractor trailers, multi-axle trucks and tippers, with 25-tonne GVW or higher, sold in India.

“For close to 60 years now, Tata Motors has been a step ahead in offering new technologies, products and value-added services. The four-year warranty is another industry first, in our pursuit of partnering the customer through the lifecycle of the product. We believe that it is a perfect New Year gift to our customers,” said Ravi Pisharody, Executive Director (Commercial Vehicles), Tata Motors.

The four-year standard warranty, which is based on the lifecycle cost study of over 15 lakh Tata trucks and tippers, is applicable on vehicles sold after January 6, 2013.
