Tata Motors Limited has launched a 5.0-litre Fuel Intelligent TurboTronn engine in India after its success in ICV and MCV segment products like the Ultra 1518, Ultra T.16, and Ultra 1918 models.
The company has indigenously developed this engine after the implementation of the BS6-emission regulations by the Indian Government from 1 April 2020. These new regulations have started a new technological era in the Indian CV segment. Moreover, the Indian transport industry is currently suffering from the wrath of the expensive fuel prices, comparatively flatter freight rates, higher BS6 vehicle cost, and increasing costs of operations. These factors have considerably lowered the profit margin for CV transporters.
Tata Motors has identified the situation and brought in value products specially designed to increase the customers’ profit. Undoubtedly, this has brought the company at the forefront of the shift and has made it the market leader of commercial vehicles. The new engine will reduce the operation and maintenance costs of vehicles and bring down the overall logistics cost for end-users and make transportation economically viable.
The engine requires relatively a lower service and maintenance cost and ensures operational sturdiness, durability, high power density and a flatter torque curve. The state-of-the-art technology of the engine allows the customers to enjoy a higher saving in fluid (diesel & DEF) which further reduces the service costs.
The 5.0-litre TurboTronn engine used in ICV & MCV segment products produces a maximum power of 180bhp and a peak torque of 700Nm. The company has enhanced that version by upgrading the engine output and incorporating several value enhancers. The recently introduced engine unit now produces a maximum power of 200bhp and a peak torque of 850Nm.
Tata Motors is now offering this new Turbotronn engine on the 28T GVW, 35T GVW, and 30T GCW commercial vehicle (multi-axle truck & tractor-trailer) in the Cargo portfolio and 19T Tipper and 28T RMC. All these will have drivelines that will provide best-in-class fuel efficiency in their respective operating segment.
The SIGNA 2821.T, LPT 2821 Cowl, and ULTRA 2821.T in Cargo, and SIGNA 2821.K RMC in the construction range are among the vehicle that falls in the 28T GVW category of Tata Motors. The 35T GVW category consists of CVs like the SIGNA 3521.T and LPT 3521 Cowl, while the tractor-trailer segment’s Ultra 3021.S falls in the 30T GCW category.
Additional features offered by the company includes a 3-mode fuel economy switch, gear shift advisor, electronic anti-fuel-theft, and unitized wheel bearings. To top that, all the models will get a Fleet Edge advanced telematics solution with a bouquet of value-added services from Tata Motors as well. The company provides a standard 6-years/6 lakh kilometres driveline warranty for these products.
With the shift towards the rated load operations, this indigenously developed 5-litre Fuel Intelligent TurboTronn product range from Tata Motors is undoubtedly a boon for MCV, MAV, Tipper, and TT segment. With the shift towards the rated load operations, these segments operating at rated load, delivering the right power and torque figures for the desired operation and yet producing high fuel efficiency than the historical conventional 6-cylinder engine, will surely see a rise in their profit margin.
