MAN Trucks India flagged “The MAN Expedition”, a pan-Indian drive, to create greater visibility for its haulage range of vehicles. The expedition comprises five haulage trucks which will start from Pune, Dhanbad and Kochi and traverse the country over a period of 22 days. These five trucks, helmed by 10 drivers, will collectively travel over 9,000 km and converge at the company’s Pithampur factory, near Indore.
MAN’s dealer partners have organised various customer engagement programmes at 29 locations across the country. The Pune to Pithampur route trip has already been flagged off and the vehicles are currently in Gujarat. The CLA Evo series trucks in this drive include the 40.250, 49.250 and 49.300 tractors and the 31.300 rigid truck. All the vehicles are carrying rated payload in order to demonstrate performance under true operating conditions. Two tractors are equipped with semi-wall trailers; one with a flat-bed trailer; and one with a container trailer. These vehicles will stop at dealer locations as well as at transport nagars and dhabas.
The MAN CLA Evo haulage series offers benefits such as the highest payload in its categories, fuel efficiency, 20-hour duty cycle, and maximum product reliability. The New CLA EVO series trucks are powered by the MAN D-0836, which is a turbocharged and inter-cooled engine. The electronically controlled common rail system makes the engine reliable, fuel efficient and more environment friendly.
