In Kenya I think TATA is the front runner for Tipper trucks segment. In other segments IZUZU and Chinese trucks are ruling. May be this will change things for TATA

I saw a TATA Prima truck for the first time a few weeks ago near the Indo Nepal border. I must say it is an impressive looking truck. It was pulling a trailer and was bright red in colour. It sure does stand out from the rest. I don't know much about the internals of the truck but the Externals looks world class, which would not look out of place on an european road.
