Tata Motors today launched AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) Technology in its new Starbucks and Ultra brand of buses. At a starting price of Rs 21 lakhs, the new BS-IV compliant AMT buses will range from 9-12 meters and a seating capacity of 23 to 44 passengers.

The new buses will feature – Crawler Mode, Hill Hold and Kick down making them suitable for Indian travel conditions.

Speaking at the occasion, Ravi Pisharody, Executive Director - Commercial Vehicles, Tata Motors said, “The launch of our range of AMT buses is yet another example of how best we understand our customers. Having developed the AMT technology for our buses with WABCO, we will continue to work with partners like them to develop and introduce products with a best-in-class value proposition, delivering world-class solutions for the Indian customer.”

Earlier this year, Eicher also launched its new series of buses and trucks in India featuring AMT technology.

“With rapid urbanisation and environmental concerns, there is an increasing focus towards efficient public transportation. As the cities get congested, especially during peak hours, the average speed of the vehicle is drastically reduced with frequent start-stop, causing delays, discomfort for passengers and drivers and more so cuts down on the fuel economy of the vehicle,” said Ajit Kumar Jindal, Head Engineering, Commercial Vehicles, Tata Motors.

The AMT technology of the bus automatically engages the vehicle’s clutch and shifts the gear. It also considers the driver’s operation, engine torque, vehicle load and road inclination, resulting in optimised gear shifting and hassle -free driving experience.
