MAN Trucks India, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Germany’s MAN Truck & Bus AG, has crossed a milestone of 25,000 units in sales when it delivered the New CLA EVO range of trucks to customers at its Pithampur facility.
The new range of CLA EVO trucks was unveiled at the BAUMA CONEXPO INDIA in December 2016.
The market introduction of the new range also coincides with the BS IV emission norms that came into effect on April 1, 2017.
The series includes tippers, rigids and tractors, besides special application trucks that address diverse customer requirements.
Joerg Mommertz, Chairman and Managing Director, MAN Trucks India said, “ The new CLA EVO range is a good example of our ability to develop solutions in India, for India. Going forward, we will work towards bringing newer solutions to raise the bar for our customers.“
The CLA EVO series trucks are powered by the MAN D-0836 common rail engine that delivers 250HP and 300HP based on the application while also complying with the BS IV emission norms.
With the implementation of GST, Mommertz said that demand for haulage trucks is expected to rise. The MAN long haul trucks can operate up to 20 hours duty cycles, which will benefit operators in terms of faster turnaround.
MAN Trucks India offers customer support through its 63 touch points in India and one each in Bangladesh, Bhutan and Nepal.
