dramatic reduction in NOx and particulate matter – as low as one-tenth compared
to existing Euro 3 norms. Achieving these norms requires a significant leap in
technological capability, and a strong dose of Indian ingenuity. The 4940 Euro
6 truck does this using Indian innovation, and offers world-class norms at
