Tata Motors introduces BS-IV Trucks in Tamil Nadu
Published On May 26, 2017
Tata Motors, the largest commercial vehicle automaker in the country has launched the new range of BS-IV trucks in Tamil Nadu. The BS-IV compliant medium and heavy duty trucks features Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technologies. Tata Motors is the only company to have introduced both these technologies in the entire range of its vehicle offerings.
The company showcased over 20 such models to the local transporters at the Truck World Expo held in Salem, Tamil Nadu. Both the EGR and SCR technologies are implemented keeping in mind the technicalities and feasibilities to meet the latest emission standards instituted by the central government.
Where EGR is cheap and easy to implement, SCR on the other hand is the globally proven technology and can be upgraded to meet the upcoming emission norms. Rajesh Kaul, Head of Sales and Marketing, Medium and Heavy Commercial Vehicles, said "Over the last six decades we at Tata Motors have led technology shifts in the Indian medium & heavy duty trucking space, having developed futuristic products and solutions ahead of its time”.
He further stated that Tata Motors besides its stronghold in the domestic market has been shipping its products to regions such as Australia, Russia, South East Asia, Europe and Latin American where emission standards are ahead that of India. The company is already exporting Euro IV (BS-IV) and Euro V (BS-V) in these regions. The Indian government has decided to skip the BS-V norms and will directly implement the BS-VI (Euro VI) emission standards starting April 2020, a crucial step hailed by many.
