Ashok Leyland launches AVTR 2825

Ashok Leyland, flagship of the Hinduja Group and India’s leading commercial vehicle manufacturer, recently launched India’s first tipper with 9-speed Automated Manual Transmission (AMT) – the AVTR 2825.

The new AVTR 2825 with 9 speed AMT can operate in different transmission modes (automated and manual) and deliver high fuel efficiency with its acceleration-based gear shifting, the company said in a release. Ingenious technology of AMT in AVTR 2825 tipper eases driving efforts with its unique features like rock-free mode and integrated Hill-Start-Aid. This technical advancement helps in drastically reducing driver fatigue and stress while operating in a challenging environment the tippers are subjected to.

According to Sanjeev Kumar, Head – MHCV, tippers are the fastest growing segment in M&HCV space and they are the driving force for the rapidly growing infrastructure needs of our country. Tippers are largely operated in rough conditions for long durations, therefore requiring them to be highly reliable and ergonomic, he said.

“As a customer-centric OEM, we made these trucks more user-friendly and convenient while retaining robustness and reliability. Built on our philosophy of ‘Aapki Jeet, Hamari Jeet’, these new tippers will ensure ease of operation and decrease fatigue of the drivers. We are sure that the increased clutch and gearbox life, in addition to faster turnaround time, will enhance our customers’ business and profits,” Sanjeev Kumar added. The new AVTR 2825 comes with automated economy / power mode for improved fuel efficiency. It features accelerator pedal-based shifting for better acceleration and gradeability and also equipped with variable up shift and down shift rpms based on gradient for smoother gear-shifting.
