Tata Motors is introducing a new range of Super Milo bus chassis across the country. As the name suggests, the Super Milo range delivers superior operating economies. The Super Milo range is available in two variants — City and Highway — each with customised parameters calibrated for their individual applications.
Both variants are powered by the BS II complaint 697 TCIC 130 HP engine. The higher power and better torque at a lower engine rpm — 130 HP@2400 rpm and a torque of 410 Nm@1400-1700 rpm — result in better pick up, and more mileage.
Mr. P M Telang, Tata Motors Executive Director – Commercial Vehicles Business Unit, said, ‘The Super Milo bus range is yet another tailor made product aimed at meeting changing customer requirements. In a scenario of rising fuel and input prices, this range offers better fuel efficiency, and lower maintenance costs, resulting in higher profitability to the operator. Customers can now choose between the City and Highway variants depending on their business needs, road conditions and terrain.’
Mr. R Pisharody, Tata Motors Vice President – Sales & Marketing, Commercial Vehicles Business Unit, said, The Super Milo range of bus chassis offers the customer an attractive value proposition with its combination of unique features and superior technical specifications at an unbeatable price.
Key features of the Super Milo bus range include:
These features offer 8% to 10% more fuel efficiency, along with a comfortable ride.
The Super Milo bus range comes with an engine warranty of 2 years or 2 lakh kilometres (whichever is earlier), and a chassis warranty of 1.5 years or 1.5 lakh kilometres (whichever is earlier). The range starts at Rs 8.5 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi), and is being launched nationwide.
