Tata Motors’ Commercial Vehicles Business Unit (CVBU) is set to launch six heavy duty trucks along with an intelligent vehicle and driver management solution Tata FleetMan Telematics Services.

Karl Slym, Managing Director of Tata Motors, will launch the medium and heavy commercial vehicles here in Hyderabad and thereby significantly expand the portfolio.

New vehicles

The vehicles set for launch today are — Tata LPT 3723 – 37 tonner cargo trucks, LPK 3118 – 31 tonner tipper, Prima 3138 K–380 HP mining Tipper, Prima LX 4023 S–40 Tonner Range Prima Trailor, Prima LX 4923 S–49 Tonner Range Tractor and Tata Prima 4938 S–49 Tonner Range Tractor.

Karl Slym said in a statement: “Tata Motors has been in the Indian commercial vehicle space for over six decades. We have developed a very deep understanding of the Indian market. These six first-of-its-kind trucks bear testimony to that tradition of the company.’’

Tata Motors has come up with a warranty programme of four years on its entire range of 25 tonnes and higher trucks.

Tata FleetMan

The company will also introduce a telematics and fleet management service branded Tata FleetMan. This has been developed in-house by the company.

Targeted at commercial vehicle fleet owners and large consigners of goods, the service offers advanced telematics solutions. These will help in increasing the productivity and profitability of the fleet operators with a tracking mechanism.

Tata FleetMan will initially be introduced on new tractor-trailers, but will be available on the entire Tata Motors medium and heavy commercial vehicle range in the coming months.

The service will also be extended to existing vehicles, through aftermarket fitments.
