Ashok Leyland, flagship of the Hinduja Group has launched Captain Haulage and 3718 Plus, the BS-IV trucks with iEGR (Intelligent Exhaust Gas Recirculation) engines in Mumbai. Ashok Leyland also introduced Haulage Trucks with maintenance free Hubs i.e., with Unitized Wheel Bearings.

Present at the launch, Mr. Anuj Kathuria, President, Global Trucks, Ashok Leyland Ltd., said, “Ashok Leyland has been gaining customers’ trust across the country, across segments. This has been possible owing to our winning combination of products, our innovation-led technologies and our customer-first approach. Maharashtra, especially Mumbai, has been one of our key focus market and our customers here are seeing the value in investing in our products. As part of our strategy to further grow and strengthen our leadership, Captain Haulage and 3718 Plus will play an important role. The winning combination includes competitive price point, higher fuel efficiency, more payload and heavy duty aggregates resulting in lower operating cost, maintenance cost, better maneuverability and durability. All of this combined with our innovative iEGR technology, will help reduce operating costs for customers, resulting in higher profitability.”

The Captain Haulage trucks are designed to deliver higher uptime and faster turnaround time to meet the high productivity demands of the logistics industry. Captain is powered by the H series CRS engine with iEGR technology to offers high initial pickup and good fuel economy. These vehicles also come with an essential safety feature, Frontal Crash Protection. This feature helps the vehicle to absorb the impact in case of an unfortunate incident of a head-on collision and keeps the occupants of the vehicle safe. Captain Haulage Trucks are available in 25T, 31T & 37T GVW segments. The range is built for a wide number of applications like Market Load, Parcel, Tankers, Cement Bulkers and Containers.

3718 PLUS is latest addition in 37T segment which is one of the fastest growing segments in CV industry. This offers another 10% fuel savings, 225 kgs of more payload and 10% extra tyre life from new technology tyres. 3718 PLUS offer the best maneuverability through the optimal overall length, 27.5 ft & 29.5 ft loading span options, and appropriate positioning of lift axle.

In Trucks with Unitized Wheel Bearings, grease is packed for life and no periodical hub greasing, end play adjustment or bearing replacement are required. It also helps in improving tyre life. Unitized Wheel Bearings are now available as an optional feature on 37T & 31T range and will be expanded to other ranges progressively.
