Eicher has launched the Eicher Pro 2000 series in India. This move by Eicher Trucks and Buses, that is a module of the VE Commercial Vehicles Limited (VECV), comes in compliance with the BS-VI standard for India. It has been launched much ahead of the deadline prescribed by the government of April 2020.
The Eicher Pro 2000 series brings two separate variants in the market. The Eicher Pro 2049 advertises a 1\.8 m cabin. The other version, the Eicher Pro 2095XP, comes with five different cargo options.
The new Eicher Pro 2000 Series Light-duty trucks get new smart cabins that have received major upgrades. This is also the first newly developed cabin after 33 years from the manufacturer. The company has added a number of segment-first features on the new Pro 2000 Series including steering mounted controls, 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth USB and AUX connectivity.
There is also telematics connectivity as well with the fleet management system that allows owners to keep a track of the vehicle and also helps drivers improve the fuel efficiency with the fuel coaching feature. This range will expand the company’s light-duty portfolio and address a wider range of applications.
Vinod Aggarwal, MD & CEO, VE Commercial Vehicles said, “It is a moment of immense pride for us to usher the automotive industry into its next evolution with BS-VI emission technology. We have always believed in investing rigorously in R&D to stay ahead in the industry by improving transportation efficiency and the Pro 2000 series is a testament to that mission. With a strong blend of technology and engineering innovations, we are yet again bringing in a new benchmark for the industry, offering our customers a radically differentiated experience in the CV space.”
The Eicher Pro 2049 10ft HSD is priced at ₹9.1 lakh, while the Eicher Pro 2095 XP 19ft HSD is priced at ₹16.4 lakh.
