MUMBAI: Mahindra & Mahindra (M&M) will launch its first truck under a joint venture (JV) with Navistar, North America's largest commercial truckmaker, next month.

Mahindra Navistar Automotives, the JV, will produce medium and heavy trucks above 25 tonne and tractor trailers above 49 tonne, said Pawan Goenka, president (automotive business), M&M.

The trucks will be competitively priced, he said, adding the JV aims to be a significant player in the country's commercial vehicle market, which has shown signs of recover last month after recording de-growth in the past three quarters. It s going to be a difficult task. We just want to do everything right, said Mr Goenka. The JV has already invested Rs 1,200 crore, and it plans to raise another Rs 500-600 crore long-term debt from Indian banks in the next 3-6 months, said Mr Goenka.

The funds raised will be used for product development, tools and dyes at the companies greenfield unit in Chakan to produce the medium and heavy trucks with capacity of more than 3.5 tonne. The company will continue to produce vehicles with lower capacity at its Zaheerabad, Andhra Pradesh plant. Two of M&Ms products, the Loadking and Tourister have been transferred to the new JV.

In 2005, M&M, International Truck and Engine Corporation, the operating company of Navistar, had entered into a JV to manufacture light, medium and heavy commercial vehicles for India as well as export markets.

India s largest sports-utility vehicle maker will make and sell engines under a separate venture called Mahindra Navistar Engines (P). We plan to start exporting engines after a year. The truck exports would follow shortly, Rakesh Kalra, managing director of Mahindra Navistar Automotives, said. Mahindra Navisar Engines on Monday unveiled the Maxxforce 7.2 litre diesel engine, which will power the M&M line up of CVs and buses. Initially, the engines will be used for the CV range, followed by other applications like marine products.

Looks like an LHD model (I may be wrong)! For export maybe!

The Eicher is a rare spotting. In this category, there are very few Eicher buses in India.

Those leylands run mostly on the Malabar - Mysore - Blore sector. The depot is mentioned as TLY, os it must be thalassery.

Pramod, that Eicher Bus of KeSRTC is a SURPRISE!! Any idea when it was launched? And the body seems not to be built by KeSRTC workshops.

The bus is shot when it is parked in Shankhumukhom Beach, Trivandrum. Wonder what a new FP bus is doing at Shankhumukhom!
