Eicher Trucks and Buses has revealed its BS-VI compliant Eicher Pro 2000 series of Light-Duty Trucks. The new range expands Eicher’s light-duty portfolio and steps into a wider scope of applications so as to be the apt choice in new segments.
Pro 2000 series delivers on higher profitability, and is backed with features that enhance reliability, safety, comfort and efficiency. Eicher Pro 2000 series is available in new engine platforms that optimise on fuel efficiency and a range of power options.
Two new smart tilt-able cabins in 1.8 m and 2.0 m configurations have been built. The cabin offers improved turning radius, comfortable driving experience and reduced NVH levels. New-gen features include a 18cm touch-screen infotainment system, Bluetooth, telematics connectivity, and FM, USB port and card reader.
Pro 2000 series is equipped with Eicher Live advanced telematics to better manage trips, fuel and vehicle uptime. With payload efficiency, the range is aimed at logistics and intra-city applications. Eicher Pro 2049 and Eicher Pro 2095XP new variants are equipped with industry first segment features. Eicher Pro 2049 with a 1.8m cabin is aimed at last mile distribution with its high legal payload of 2.7T, Dual mode M-Booster tech, and larger loading space.
Eicher Pro 2095XP payload is pegged at 7.2T and is available in five cargo body options – 14.1, 17.6, 19, 20 and 21.5 feet. Eicher BS VI engines E474 and E494, industry-first All wheel disc brakes, and tweaks in tech, comfort, safety and mileage makes the series a strong segment contender.
Eicher’s current experience in manufacturing and exporting base engines for Euro VI requirements of Volvo Group since the last 6 years has given them the first mover advantage. While the company rolls out select models fuelled by the two new BS-VI engine platforms, Eicher Pro 2000 series also continue to be available in BS-IV range across all markets.
