Eicher launched the very first BS6 commercial vehicle in the country back in June 2019
Volvo-Eicher Commercial Vehicles (VECV) Limited has unveiled its BS6 range of trucks and buses that are underpinned by the brand’s all-new EUTECH6 platform. EUTECH6 combines the VECV’s expertise in making reliable and fuel-efficient drivetrains with enhanced uptime. The company claims that it has made the most efficient upgrade to BS6 emission norms alongside 24×7 uptime support and higher profitability for the customer’s commercial or logistics business.
The new range of Volvo-Eicher products leverages the brand’s expertise of over six years in the field of Euro VI vehicles. The new BS6 Eicher trucks and buses come equipped with a sophisticated EATS (Exhaust After-Treatment System). The engines have been tested for more than 5.6 million kilometres. With the help of a dual-cycle SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) system, the vehicles are much cleaner while returning better fuel efficiency and lower maintenance.
VECV’s Uptime Centre at Pithampur, Madhya Pradesh, offers excellent service support with a team of experts in areas such as remote diagnostics, predictive diagnostics and specialised assistance. The facility also provides 24×7 on-road assistance in the form of EOS (Eicher On-Road Service). Depending on the location, the team is capable of communicating in languages such as Hindi, Marathi, Telugu, Tamil, Kannada, Malayalam and of course, English.
Speaking about the new BS6 range and the services introduced alongside, Vinod Aggarwal, MD & CEO of Volvo Eicher Commercial Vehicles stated that the company provides the “most comprehensive and innovative solution” to commercial-vehicle customers. The latest BS6 standards have been met with the brand’s expertise in Euro VI engines that power many heavy vehicles across the globe. On the other hand, the new Uptime solution will provide a unique aftersales experience for VECV customers.
The CV (Commercial Vehicle) manufacturer has also set up new ‘competence development centres’ and mobile training facilities. At present, there is a total of 18 such facilities. In parallel, ‘Uptime Enablement’ of all workshops are progressing at a rapid rate to ensure availability and adequacy of people, process and infrastructure.
EUTECH6 products not only reduce fuel consumption, but improve business productivity as well. Being the very first brand to unveil a BS6 commercial vehicle in India (Eicher Pro2000 series), VECV is confident that it will continue its success story for years to come. Volvo-Eicher Commercial Vehicles Limited has been on the Indian market since July 2008 and deals with Volvo-branded trucks as well.
