Mahindra Truck and Bus Division has marked its entry into the ICV (Intermediate Commercial Vehicles) segment, by unveiling its new range of Furio ICV trucks.

The Furio range has been into development since 2014 and is the result of more than 500 Mahindra engineers, 180 suppliers and an investment of Rs. 600 crores. The Furio range comprises of 21 trucks, out of which 4 were unveiled today, and more 7 trucks will be unveiled before the BSVI norms come in, and the remaining trucks will be unveiled after them.

The new Furio truck range has been designed by Pininfarina, an Italian automotive designing company that was acquired by the Mahindra Group back in 2015. With the new range of Furio ICV trucks, the company aims to rank second in the Indian commercial vehicle sector.

The Furio range of trucks features a 7-slat grille at the front with silver accents, a metal front bumper with cornering lamps, that is first in the segment in the country. The truck also gets front under-run protection. The truck is equipped with both modern and safety features. The cabin is also 5-degree cooler, which has been possible because of the lower rake angle and 8 outlet vents in the cabin.

The new Furio range is powered by a new MDI Tech diesel engine. This new engine is super-efficient, light-weight, low friction, and is also equipped with FuelSmart technology (it has multimode switches to optimize fuel consumption depending on the load and road conditions). This new engine is also capable of delivering high torques at low rpms.

This new Furio range of ICV trucks has been tested for over 17 lakh kilometres on various terrains and varying altitudes. The truck has also undergone over 1000 trials.

The Furio ICV range will be manufactured by the company at its Chakan plant near Pune.
