As a 20.7 billion-dollar global enterprise, India’s Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., through its Sri Lankan partner Ideal Motors Ltd., launched the Mahindra Blazo Prime Mover trucks at the Ideal Motors branch in Kelaniya, Wedamulla.
The truck has been manufactured to ensure that it needs only a yearly service with the capacity to give greater mileage. It has a 7,200cc high capacity engine with a 280 horse power. The fuel-smart technology provides greater fuel efficiency, a company spokesman said.
All these trucks come with a six-speed gearbox, ABS, adjustable driver’s seat, Driver Information System, a strong 8.5 chassis, attractive dash board and radial tyres.
With over 25 years’ experience, Roshan Mendis and Thushan Mahagedara, are Truck & Route’s directors. The company was formed to cater to a vacuum in the commercial transportation sector.
Its fleet consists of small vehicles and large vehicles and provides a wide range of transportation solutions, including warehouse facilities and management of warehouses.
“We are extremely pleased with the service provided by Ideal Motors and this was one of the main reasons that we decided to purchase the Mahindra Blazo Prime Mover trucks. We have also received a two-year warranty from Ideal Motors,” said Roshan Mendis.
