That's a 45 year old design, basically an improved version of Mercedes OM 314. Doesn't an all-new platform deserve an all-new engine?

I'd like to know what is new in Y1 given that it uses the same engine.

Basically Y1 would be a new platform, i.e new chassis designed in modular concept so that numerous variants can be made from it. The chassis is more wider and can accommodate different suspensions (parabolic leaf springs or air suspensions), axle variants, engines (6 or 4 cyl.) etc. And regarding engine, its the BS3 497TCIC which is fitted in this bus for domestic market. But need not be surprised if TML offers BS4 ISBe in the same bus or any other 6Cyl. engine for export market etc.

What about the new range of 3 to 5 litre engines developed in collaboration with AVL? Y1 was supposed to use these. The 3L version was displayed at the last Autoexpo.

Its a shame about Bharat Benz not participating. Does anyone know why they opted out ?

Is Photon participating ? Any other Big names not participating in the CV segment ?

Judging by the chaos at the last couple of shows one gets the impresseion that its about time the organizers consider a CV + Off-Highway and Pascar+2 wheeler specific event every alternate year. OR shift to a new venue (cant really think of one which can do justice to the scale of the AutoExpo) if CII continues with the current pattern of having CVs, Pascars and two wheelers at the same expo.

Bharat Benz is participating in Auto Expo and they will show case their range of India specific products.

Mercedes-Benzís Indian arm of their truck business will preview BharatBenz trucks at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo. ...... Now, they have started a bespoke Indian subsidiary known by the name of BharatBenz which will cater to the growing demand for commercial vehicles in India.
The BharatBenz brand was formed to be able to cater to the specific needs of the market here in India. Driving conditions in India are very different compared to those in Europe or any other part of the world. Hence, BharatBenz trucks are designed specifically for the Indian market. The trucks have undergone extensive testing in different conditions over a period of time. BharatBenz will set a benchmark for trucking in India with its high-quality products tailored to the specific needs of the customer. The exclusive preview of BharatBenz trucks has been organised on January 4th alongside an event in New Delhi.

Wonder what's holding back AL and TM from launching such a bus. Didn't anyone inside get the idea at least when Volvo introduced the B9R?
