Kolkata:The Automobile industry is continuously evolving. Not just light vehicles but there is a great evolution in the heavy vehicles segment too.Mahindra BLAZO comes at a time when the industry demands a fresh change and a product that truly answers their needs. Whether its customized features, FE, smart truck, better mileage, lower TCO, less maintenance or anything else; the answer today is BLAZO!
Powered with FuelSmart technology developed by Mahindra to provide businesses a competitive winning edge, the FuelSmart switches let the customer choose between superior mileage and unmatched power as and when the business demands. The BLAZO by this technology provides drivers with options between turbo, heavy and light modes. Each mode squeezes the maximum efficiency from the mPower FuelSmart engine and gives unbeatable mileage.In commercial vehicles there is a challenge to provide a single solution of engine and vehicle power-train configuration to multiple applications and variants. The FUELSMART technology, with its multi-mode switches, will help drivers in choosing the correct mode based on load and road conditions, thereby leading to efficiency.

They are even guaranteeing uptime on its breakdown service by getting the truck back on road in 48 hours or less, or they will pay the customer INR 1000 per day! This is a huge promise as far as the after-sales services are concerned.
