MAN Trucks India, a 100 per cent subsidiary of MAN Truck & Bus AG, Germany, rolled out a new CLA EVO range. The initial delivery of trucks to customers took place recently at an event at the company’s facility at Pithampur, Indore. With this, MAN Trucks has also crossed an important milestone in its journey – over 25,000 vehicles sold in India as well as export markets.
The series includes tippers, rigids and tractors, besides special application trucks that address diverse customer requirements. These are designed for tough operating conditions and have high performance and efficiency levels.
With new benchmarks, the CLA EVO series offers a combination of power, fuel efficiency, world-class performance and safety. The trucks are powered by the proven MAN D-0836 common rail engine that delivers 250 HP and 300 HP based on the application. At the same time it complies with the BS-IV emission norms.
Coupled with a well-configured driveline, the engine delivers best-in-class fuel efficiency. Extensively tested to global standards and equipped with strong aggregates and a robust chassis frame and suspension, the CLA EVO range meets the highest operating standards under extreme conditions.
The new CLA EVO series comprises tippers, and long-haul and special application trucks ranging from 16 tonnes to 49 tonnes. Mated with six- and nine-speed gearboxes, the trucks are adapted for specific operational purposes. The electronically controlled common rail system makes the engine reliable, fuel efficient and environment friendly. The crawler gear in long-haul trucks helps the engine run within the optimal rpm range, thereby reducing fuel consumption. Strong rigid front axles and hypoid rear axles provide superior traction and gradeability, and unmatched reliability. The tippers feature MAN‘s planetary rear axles with hub reduction, which provides high ground clearance and has proven its effectiveness in varying conditions.
