AMT for Tata buses

Tata Motors has introduced AMT technology in its buses ranging between 9 m and 12 m in length. Expected to reduce driving fatigue for city bus drivers especially, the AMT tech equipped buses are priced at Rs.21 lakh, ex-showroom New Delhi. Available in multiple variants, and for diverse applications, the AMT equipped buses are BSIV emission norms compliant. The transmission, offering manual, automatic, economy and power modes, includes an Automatic Gear Detection (AGD), which ensures sufficient engine torque to ensure agility and driveability even under demanding duty cycles. The economy mode ensures optimal fuel consumption. Coupled to a powerful engine, the AMT takes away the task of operating the clutch and shifting gears from the driver. It takes into account the driver’s operation, engine torque, vehicle load and road inclination, to optimise gear shifting. Tata Motors developed AMT technology in collaboration with Wabco. Expressed Ravi Pisharody, Executive Director – Commercial Vehicles, Tata Motors, that the AMT buses reflect upon their understanding of the customer and provide him CVs with best-in-class value.
