A highlight of the 10th India Auto Expo was Mahindra & Mahindra’s technology display, focused on its commitment to eco friendly, highly safe personal mobility. The MNAL unveiled a family of commercial trucks and tractors in the
range of 25-, 31- , 40- and 49- ton. The trucks are made for India, made in India and leverage Navistar’s expertise in designing and manufacturing medium- and heavy-duty commercial trucks.
MNAL is adding 50 new dealers across the country and will also draw on the vast pool of Mahindra &Mahindra auto and tractor channel partners to use as an extended network for serving the needs of its customers.
At the heart of the 40- and 49-ton trucks is Navistar’s MaxxForce® 7.2 liter CRDI engine, the most modern engine in its class in terms of product configuration as well as component technology for the HCV segment in India. This MaxxForce engine was chosen from Navistar’s global portfolio to serve the needs of markets with emerging emissions requirements. With the 4-valve per cylinder technology, the engine has been designed for better performance, higher power, better fuel efficiency and stricter adherence to Indian and Euro emission standards.
