Tata Offering Truck Telematics Solutions and CNG Vehicles

Major India-based automak­er Tata Motors, best known in the US for its $2,500 Tata Nano tiny car, has launched six heavy trucks in its com­mer­cial vehi­cle busi­ness unit. The com­pa­ny also intro­duced a telem­at­ics and fleet man­age­ment ser­vice, Tata Fleet­Man Telem­at­ics Ser­vices, which is tar­get­ed at com­mer­cial vehi­cle fleet own­ers and con­sign­ers of goods.

Fleet man­agers are offered telem­at­ics solu­tions such as fuel man­age­ment, dri­ver man­age­ment, and remote diag­nos­tics. It’s being intro­duced first as part of its tractor/trailer launch­es, but will be avail­able on the entire Tata Motors medi­um and heavy-duty line­up in the months ahead.

Tata’s trucks have been designed and built specif­i­cal­ly to offer the low­est total cost of own­er­ship (TCO), best-in-class fuel effi­cien­cy, longer ser­vice runs, and enhanced lev­els of dri­ver com­fort. The trucks include the first 37-ton, 5-axle truck in India, the Tata LPT 3723 in the 10x4 con­fig­u­ra­tion, and two new engine capac­i­ties in the Pri­ma range at 380 hp and 230 hp.

In relat­ed news, Tata recent­ly dis­played 13 pas­sen­ger and com­mer­cial vehi­cles at the Indone­sia Inter­na­tion­al Motor Show. Tata recent­ly announced its intro­duc­tion into the Indone­sia auto mar­ket and will start local assem­bly next year, along with estab­lish­ing a net­work of 60 deal­ers for sales, ser­vice, and spare part sup­plies.

Com­pressed nat­ur­al gas vehi­cles have been among the dis­play vehi­cles in Indone­sia. A spe­cial green pavil­ion has been set up at the show to show­case Tata Nano CNG Con­cept, Tata Ace CNG, Tata Xenon CNG, and Tata Mag­ic CNG.
