Volvo-Eicher is all set to increase its spread and has just showcased three of its latest products in Pune. The Skyline bus range is VE’s premium product offering delivering superior aesthetics and seating comfort. The buses will now be available in 12 ton and 15 ton platforms and are all set to redefine the way medium and heavy duty buses are perceived. The product aims to offer a big bus advantage at a lower cost of ownership. The Skyline buses with seating capacity of 58+1 and 65+1 come placed on the Eicher 20.15 chassis platforms and are powered by a 147 PS BSIII diesel engine. The buses with their contemporary styling and optimized passenger comfort are poised to shift preference from customized bus fabrication to fully built ready to use heavy buses in the country.
Also displayed was the Eicher 11.14, a highly fuel efficient 14.5 tonnes GVW (Gross Vehicle Weight) truck. Providing enhanced benefit to the 9-9.5 ton payload customers with its modern looks, and a host of value added features. And finally taking up the most space in the parking lot was the Eicher Terra 25, hailed by VE as the toughest tipper in its segment. Promising better uptime, better lugging power, stronger aggregates and the ability to do more number of trips, the tipper is ideally suited for usage segments like roadwork, construction, crushers etc.
And that’s not all, EV also opened a brand new dealership in Pune which will display the above mentioned products. Talwar Auto who have opened the dealership have been associated with the brand since the very inception of the Eicher Group. Talwar Auto will set up three outlets in Pune located at Tatawade, Akurdi and Chakan of which Tatawade and Akurdi would be the sales and service outlets with Chakan being a dedicated workshop.
