Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation recently announced the introduction of the new Euro V-compliant medium-duty Fighter truck for GCC markets. With this rollout both light- and medium-duty segments in the FUSO lineup will be available in the region with Euro V technology. The new medium-duty Fighter is available in variants ranging from GVWs of 10.4 to 17.1 tons to support a variety of businesses from consumer goods distribution to construction. Shipped as a built-up (BU) vehicle from MFTBC’s Kawasaki plant it pairs a robust reliable chassis with the 6-cylinder 6M60 engine that provides drivers with torque agility and endurance. The vehicle also delivers improved fuel economy with the optimized engine achieving a 60% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions as well as a 80% reduction in particle emissions. Already launched in Qatar the Euro V Fighter will also be introduced to Saudi Arabia Kuwait Oman and Bahrain within the next few months. The rollout matches the expected implementation of more stringent emissions standards in the region; Qatar plans to mandate Euro V standards starting with 2023 models. The Euro V-compliant light-duty Canter is also already available in the UAE Qatar and Oman. Countries in the GCC have been shifting quickly to integrate sustainability targets into their national strategies. Last year Qatar unveiled an action plan to combat climate change with the aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 25% by 2030. Saudi Arabia has also announced plans to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2060.

UD Trucks recently launched their Euro 5 Quester and Croner for the UAE and Qatar market. Launching the Euro 5 has a twofold meaning for UD Trucks – it’s anticipating the shift soon to happen in the Middle East in terms of emission standards as well as adhering to its brand strategy to move towards a sustainable business model. Plant & Equipment had the exclusive opportunity to spend a day getting to know the new trucks. UD Trucks organised a daylong event at the Dubai Autodrome for its clients customers media and officials to launch their prestigious Euro 5 Quester and Croner trucks. The event was a first for the brand after the onset of the pandemic and was attended by Japanese Consul-General in the UAE Noboru Sekiguchi as well as approximately 160 customers from across the region who experienced driving the new trucks first-hand. Launching the Euro 5 versions of the already popular models Quester (introduced in 2016) and Croner (introduced in 2017) UD Trucks injected a new enthusiasm in the market amongst existing clients and new customers. Significantly upgraded with new features the trucks have already been lapped up in multiple deals in different markets in the Middle East and East Africa. “Our decision to introduce the Euro 5 range was part of our brand’s strategic vision towards a Better Life where we look to become the sustainability leader within our industry” says Mourad Hedna President MEENA UD Trucks. The introduction of the Euro 5 range in the UAE and Qatar reduces the environmental impact of this class of vehicle and allows for greater efficiency in terms of driving experience and ownership costs. The launch of the new Euro 5 trucks comes ahead of the introduction of new regulations in fast-growing regional countries such as the United Arab Emirates which currently has a Euro 4 emission standard and Qatar which will be adopting Euro 5 emission standards by mid-2022. This move by UD Trucks allows businesses to better prepare for the switch to more environmentally friendly fleets as the Euro 5 range reduces NOx emissions by about 43% compared to Euro 4 and significantly reduces the carbon footprint of the vehicles through cleaner emissions. Ownership cost UD Trucks’ knows the market well and hence provides clients with essential needs – product specs and features needed by customers for their operation. “We do not offer too many high-end features and believe in providing a costeffective truck to buy and maintain” continues Hedna. Engines with proven high and flat torque ranges gets the best out of the truck in terms of fuel efficiency (approximately 10%). These engines are designed to be used for many kilometres without the need for overhauls or significant repairs. In addition these engines have longer service intervals. All of this helps to minimise operational costs for the customer. In addition the ESCOT gearbox available with Quester helps to get the best output from the average driver in terms of fuel efficiency. These gearboxes have no clutch pedals so do not need driver intervention for gear changes (an average of 1000-1500 times a day by automatically selecting the right gear at any given time) which reduces unexpected clutch wear and truck downtime. The clutch has a much longer change interval since the gear changes are done through the robotized system. “We have also introduced a new instrument cluster with an improved fueldriver coach system through which the driver gets real-time alerts and notifications to enhance his performance” adds Hedna. This new feature also gives visual notifications with different colours for the manual gearbox to drivers related to fuel consumption in real-time. This is like having a driver trainer sitting beside the driver all the time. With UD Telematics also available on the truck fleet managers have complete visibility of the truck usage and driver behaviour. The trucks and drivers can easily be monitored for rash and non-fuel-efficient behaviour which helps improve the fleet’s fuel efficiency and avoid downtime consequently leading to improved cost-effectiveness and performance of the fleet. With these specifications and features these trucks can maintain the cost-effectiveness for capital cost and operational cost ultimately optimising TCO and ROI in the shortest time possible. Selective Catalytic Reduction UD Trucks pioneered the Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology 17 years ago which helped create environmentally sound trucks and more durable and reliable engines. SCR reduces the amount of nitrogen oxides produced as combustion occurs from the engine. SCR works with Adblue a non-toxic fluid that is available at all authorised UD dealers. As emissions pass through the exhaust system Adblue held in its own tank is also injected into the system subsequently combining with the emissions and passing through the catalytic converter. This converts the nitrogen oxides produced by combustion into harmless nitrogen and water vapour. Compared to Euro 3 models the SCR in Euro 5 models produces 60 percent less nitrogen oxides and 43 per cent less than the SCR in Euro 4 models. Just four or five litres of Adblue are required for every 100 litres of diesel so it is very efficient as well as environmentally friendly. Additionally SCR does not circulate gas back to the engine as it is less sensitive to fuel quality which can lead to engine issues. This means that SCR does not require service interval changes or any additional maintenance creating even more peace of mind for customers. This innovative technology delivers more uptime and a better performing truck. Competition “There is indeed competition in the industry especially when it comes to establishing customer loyalty and ensuring satisfaction” continues Hedna. “We always want to ensure our customers feel supported and satisfied at all times and that their needs are always prioritised.” UD Trucks performed quite well last year considering the situation – a direct result of customer focus and satisfaction. Numerous elements combined delivered such loyalty and connection with customers; for example customers were given extended warranties during the lockdown to decrease any concerns they had on vehicle maintenance and repairs needed. “We provide our customers with a reliable aftersales service thanks to an extensive warranty offer and readily available spare parts all of which ensures their business can operate smoothly. Through our Dubai-based warehouse parts availability is at 95% for all service parts. The service package includes lubricants offer to support optimal vehicle efficiency a full international warranty of two years on trucks and two years on fitted spare parts and factory-fit” concludes Hedna.

IVECO launched two trucks – the new T-Way (off-road) and the new S-Way (long haul) truck – in Dubai for the Middle East market. Both new vehicles cater to their clients’ changing needs for the present moment and upcoming decade. Plant & Equipment had the chance to drive the new trucks and get detailed insights from the IVECO personnel. IVECO introduced their latest offerings at an in-person three-day launch event at the Dubai Autodrome. The new T-Way off-road truck and the new S-Way long haul truck were presented to more than 150 customers dealers and the media through an in-depth familiarisation concept using multiple channels. The vehicles were also available to test drive on both an on-road and off-road track. IVECO had held a live virtual launch of these trucks for its European market in June 2021. The brand’s major markets in the region are Saudi Arabia UAE Iraq Egypt Qatar and Oman. “We have a long-lasting relationship with many customers in the region because IVECO is trusted and appreciated for the reliability of its vehicles and professionalism of the team” says Fabio De Serafini Africa and Middle East Business Director. “Let’s not forget that our success in the Middle East is a matter of capillarity: thanks to our network of 11 dealers 20 points of sales and 40 service locations. IVECO can be counted amongst the protagonists in the region” continues De Serafini. Driver experience The development of the new IVECO S-Way and T-Way has been inspired by improving the driver experience cutting TCO and offering dealers ample opportunities to increase sales and competitiveness in the markets. TCO and customer profitability is achieved by the new S-Way being 12% more efficient in aerodynamics with an estimated 4% fuel economy in long haulage which means a saving of 2000 €year for each truck. The new features of the T-Way range such as the EBS Hi-Mux electrical architecture and disc brakes reduce maintenance cost by 15% (as compared to previous models) which contributes to a very competitive and economic vehicle operation in the long run. These two new trucks are the result of continuous re-creation and re-invention. This new heavy range exemplifies the achievements of a product innovation cycle developed step by step over the last few years. “When we decided to develop the new models we knew we were building the truck for the next decade facing a high frequency and amplitude of regulatory challenges around emissions safety and connectivity” says Impelluso. The new range is perfect to work in the most extreme climate and weather conditions both due to their robustness and new cabin comfort: the air conditioning system and integrated parking cooler and heater systems ensure an ideal internal climate within the cab in all weather conditions when driving or during stops. The cab provides outstanding ergonomics and controls layout. The T-Way cabin is available in two versions: AD short cab and AT long cab with standard or high roof. The entire area has been created to provide a practical and easy-to-live-in environment. The comfortable and ergonomic driver’s seat together with the new-concept multi-function steering wheel ensure excellent driver support. Driver safety is paramount in the harsh conditions typically faced by the IVECO T-Way. The vehicle is designed to provide maximum protection with safety features that far exceed the type-approval requirements. The new braking system features EBS as standard full disc brakes are available on PWD models and new ADAS (Advanced Driving Assistance Systems) is available across the range. The IVECO S-Way has also been developed with a strong focus on the driver and the new cab has been redesigned and reinforced to ensure high levels of passive safety with mechanical resistance compliant with ECE R29.03 cab crash standards. The IVECO Way range has been designed for efficiency and productivity with a host of features a lower kerb weight and new telematics features and digital services. After sales IVECO has a network of service centres covering the main corridors and key areas with a backend support system which is also able to perform the service in the customer’s premises. Mobile workshops are also available to provide high standard assistance on the field. IVECO is also constantly working on improving its service standards and on increasing the number of mobile workshops for added customer peace of mind. All IVECO customers receive a standard warranty coverage (which depends on the market and is based on customers’ expectations and competitors’ offers and can be customised). On top of it each customer can purchase an additional extended warranty (full or driveline only) for up to 5 years500000km. On the new S-Way and T-Way customers can also purchase the scheduled maintenance and the wearing components coverage again up to 5 years500000km. This way IVECO is providing customized packages for maintenance and repair to better cope with all customer needs.
