Commercial Vehicle - - CONTENTS -

VE Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles has an­nounced the launch of a seven-speed transmission for its medium-duty CVs. To per­form duty on Eicher Pro 3015 and Eicher Pro 1114XP to be­gin with, the seven-speed tranny is de­signed for smooth gearshifts and less torque in­ter­rup­tion. Termed as ET50S7, the gear­box is mated to the 135 hp 3.2-litre E494 diesel en­gine with a max­i­mum torque of 450Nm @ 1200-1800 rpm. It is de­signed and de­vel­oped to op­ti­mise driv­abil­ity, fuel ef­fi­ciency and pro­duc­tiv­ity while re­duc­ing driver fa­tigue. Ex­pected to for­ward the im­age of Eicher trucks as the ones that are fuel ef­fi­cient, the new seven-speed transmission will en­able the ve­hi­cle to op­er­ate at a higher torque range (due to a flat torque curve) and elim­i­nate the need to re­peat­edly shift gears. Said Vinod K. Ag­gar­wal, MD and CEO, VE Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles, that the seven-speed transmission is revo­lu­tion­ary, and will help to en­hance fuel ef­fi­ciency and per­for­mance.
