A recent event hosted by Eicher with the aim of bringing together its customers & key stakeholders in the e-commerce industry also witnessed the launch of five new variants of its Pro 1000 and Pro 3000 series of trucks. This launch happened at the Eicher Pro Biz Expo, which was held at Dr Prabhakar Kore Convention Centre in Bangalore from November 22 to 23, 2017. These trucks (namely the Pro 1110, Pro 1110XP, Pro 3012/14 and Pro 3015) were launched with new variants focused in catering and supporting the e-commerce industry in India. Having 24ft long cargo bodies, these segment-first variants come with benefits like best-in-class payload and fuel efficiency, and higher Volume Space Index. Along with being fuel efficient, they are cost efficient too, having the longest service interval of 50,000km.

These variants have further strengthened Eicher’s position in the LMD market, pioneering Eicher Trucks and Buses at offering the largest range of trucks suited for various goods applications. Powered by an E494, 4-cylinder BSIV engine, these trucks come with Volvo’s 3.0 EMS (Engine Management System) that allows better combustion efficiency, resulting in best-in-class fuel economy, better pickup and acceleration. The cabin on the trucks too has been designed with an aim at maximising driver’s comfort, efficiency and utility.

This event gave the key stakeholders and customers a first-hand experience of the smartest solutions offered by Eicher like Aftermarket Lifetime Support System (which provides services like on-site repair), AMC (Annual Maintenance Contract), Telematics, and various other services that are important for commercial transport services. These services have all been designed considering the needs of the industry for the long haul to short haul and last-mile delivery.

Shyam Maller, Executive Vice President, Light & Medium Duty Trucks and Buses, VE Commercial Vehicles, said at the event, “The e-commerce industry in India is growing at an exponential rate and we believe in serving our customers by providing them with the right and practical solutions for their requirements. Leveraging our established strength in the Light and Medium Duty (LMD) space, we have widened our offering to cater to the specific demands of the high potential e-commerce market. Eicher now offers much wider and stronger range in the LMD segment with products ranging from 4.9T to 16T Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW), out of which we have displayed 13 vehicles today. We believe ours is the most compelling proposition for this segment of the industry.”

He further added, “At Eicher Trucks and Buses, we have always been very progressive in our approach towards introducing new products and technologies to the market. The Eicher Pro Series developed and manufactured as a result of the synergistic working between the Volvo Group and Eicher, has been a great success. Especially in the light and medium duty segment our trucks, popularly known as ‘Mileage ka Baadshah’ for delivering the best in class fuel efficiency, have witnessed a strong & steady growth over the last few years. Backed up with a strong after sales network and our proposition of Eicher Lifetime Support Solutions, we have taken one more step towards promising superior uptime for the vehicles and business profitability for our customers.”
