Mahindra Cruzio range of buses has been unveiled by Mahindra Truck and Bus Division. This new range of buses is based on the Intermediate Commercial Vehicles (ICV) platform and is aimed at the employee transport segment.
Mahindra Cruzio buses are BS VI ready. They will be among the safest, most ergonomic and comfortable buses in its segment and will set new standards in the market. The Cruzio range of buses also marks the company’s debut in the Lastwagen Pullman Overhang (LPO) segment of buses which goes a long way to offer enhanced consumer experience.
From the safety point of view, the Mahindra Cruzio conforms to Rollover Test norms as per AIS 031 and the BUS Body code as per AIS 052 along with the latest AIS 153 requirements in terms of noise and vibration standards.
The buses are offered with the highest ground clearance in their category not only to perform well on Indian road conditions but also to prevent bumpers from damage. The windscreen expanse offers clear visibility in day and night driving conditions while larger brakes demonstrate enhanced braking performance with short stopping distances.
The engine of the new Cruzio bues is patented with Mahindra FuelSmart Technology offering optimum fuel consumption. It receives multimode switches to optimise fuel consumption and engine power with load and road conditions. It is also fitted with Intelligent Driver Information System with all relevant information offered on the instrument cluster.
Seating is the best in its class with added width, special contouring and ergonomics offering full back support. There is also a broad gangway and parabolic suspension for better ride comfort. Following successful launch of the Mahindra Cruzio, directed towards the employee transport segment, the company will also be launching school and stage bus variants in the country, in a bid to expand their portfolio.
Mr. Rajan Wadhera, President, Automotive Sector, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd. said, “The unveiling of the new CRUZIO bus range marks a defining moment for our Truck and Bus business as we have taken our ICV bus platform to the next level of customer experience. Being BS-VI ready, the CRUZIO is all set to be a game changer, and is one of the safest, most ergonomic and comfortable buses that will set new standards in the market. Going forward, we will also launch the school and stage bus variants to further increase our portfolio.”
Mr. Vinod Sahay, CEO, Mahindra Truck and Bus and Construction Equipment Divisions, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., added, “The CRUZIO demonstrates Mahindra’s ability to bring the best to Indian customers, and was developed on the basis of meticulously gathered consumer insights. Bus operators in this segment are clearly looking for a solution that can balance end-user benefits, as well as helping them optimize costs. I am confident that similar to the BLAZO X HCV & FURIO ICV range, the CRUZIO LPO Bus range will also set new benchmarks for performance, earnings and deliver better value to our customers.”
