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.

3016 AMT has been equipped to address challenges around driver safety, comfort
and protection of cargo, thus ensuring fast and efficient movement of goods.
