Tata Signa 3118.T - The Extreme Truck For 31-Tonne Cargo Haulage In India

Tata Motors is India's most prominent CV business in terms of sheer sales figures, and there is a reason for the label to be where it is now. Tata has continuously improved its goods over the years. In conclusion, Tata's trucks and buses are modern and offer bulletproof reliability while ownership and carrying costs have decreased.

The biggest example of an increase in the Tata Signa 3118.T. It is India's first 3 axle 6x2 rigid truck with an atmospheric axle, allowing it to take up multiple roles for various conditions in the trucking industry.

The Tata Signa 3118.T was started in March 2021, and it has been revolutionising its buyers' businesses. It slots into the M&HCV (Medium & Heavy Commercial Vehicle) segment and boasts a 31-tonne gross vehicle weight capacity. The cost of resources, fuel consumption, and tyre wear & tear are similar to a 28-tonne truck, but the haulage is much higher. The 10-wheeler transport is India's first 3-axle 6x2 truck with a 31-tonne GVW and comes with a 3,000 kilogram higher certified payload than the similar 10-wheeler 28-tonne GVW rigid truck. This is dependent on the type of body and is something that buyers and workers have found hugely profitable.

The net operating profit is roughly around ~45 per cent more expensive than other 28-tonne vehicles. Thanks to the deployment of a double tyre lift axle in between the head and the rear-drive axle, the Signa 3118.T can operate at different load ranges. With this axle dropped, the truck 3118.T boasts 31-tonne GVW, and with it lifted, the truck gets an 18.5-tonne GVW rating. 

In simple words, the truck could be worked as both a 10-wheeler and a 6-wheeler truck, depending on the payload. This allows workers to increase efficiency by a considerable margin while hauling loads that weigh lesser. This helps truckers carry a load from one city to another and then return with an empty vehicle. 
Tankers carry a whole truckload from one city to another and then return with an empty truckload to refill. The Tata Signa 3118.T seems like the entire truck for such operators as the axle can be lifted while the truck isn't pulling any loads.

Tata Motors seems to have targeted such clients as the Signa 3118.T is certified by the PESO (Petroleum & Explosives Safety Organisation) to haul 25 kilo-litres (25,000 litres) of petroleum, oil, and ointments. This is 2 kilo-litres higher than other 28-tonne GVW trucks, which is more profitable for truck fleet operators. 

The Tata Signa 3118.T can also haul other loads such as medicines, agricultural products, pressed steel rolls, edible oil, milk, water, lubricants, etc. The truck is possible in the CX and LX variants, and both variants get lots of highlights.

As mentioned, Tata Motors has developed its profitable vehicles over the years, and today, these trucks offer a more comfortable and premium exposure to the residents in the cabin. Driver satisfaction is one of the prime necessities for a trucking company to function efficiently, and Tata Motors has done its most beneficial to keep fatigued away from the operators. 

The Tata Signa 3118.T features more support, air-conditioning and an overall more comfortable drive. All this put together helps increase driving capability over long hauls. In addition, the trucks also come packed with New generation Connected Vehicle solutions that allow fleet workers to track the trucks and keep tabs on the vehicle's support and other features.

Tata Motors' trucks have ever come with a brilliant engine, and the Signa 3118.T is no different. The rearmost axle is handled via a 6-Speed Manual transmission. It is powered by a Cummins ISBe 5.6 CR engine that puts out 186bhp and 850Nm. In addition, Tata Motors offers a brilliant driveline guarantee of 6 Years/6 lakh kilometres.
