Tata Motors has launched
an AMT (Automated Manual Transmission) technology on the Tata Starbus and Tata
Ultra brand of buses which range from 12m -9m. These buses have been developed
especially for metropolitan applications and are compliant to BS IV norms. The
AMT technology has been developed with Wabco.
Priced at Rs. 21
lakh (ex-showroom Delhi) these buses will come in multiple variants and have
diverse purposes as well. The new AMT buses from Tata will come with Economy
and Power modes along with Manual and Automatic modes. While in the power mode
the transmission's Automatic Gear Detection (AGD) will cater to sufficient
torque and power while the economy mode ensures fuel efficiency.
The AMT technology
on these Tata buses has been coupled with powerful new engines which
automatically engages the vehicles clutch and shifts the gear. The transmission
utilises inputs such as driver's operations, engine torque, vehicle load and
road inclination for optimising gear shifts.
