Eicher Trucks & Buses has introduced the first truck with AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) technology in the 16T category- Eicher Pro 3016 AMT. This industry first 16-tonne GVW AMT truck is equipped with an Intelligent Shift Control Actuator that automatically performs clutch and shift operationswhich completely eliminates the need to use the clutch and shift gears manually. The Pro 3016 AMT comes with auto and manual modes along with transmission drivability features, that is, power mode for time bound deliveries and eco mode for fuel efficient operations.
The truck's biggest advantage is that it comes with additional driving comfort over manual transmission-equipped models.
