Commenting at the launch, Mourad Hedna, UD Trucks Middle East, East and North Africa President, said that UD Trucks understood that customers need to spend more time on the road and less time in the workshop in order to make their businesses successful. He said Croner’s is to make every moment count for the customer, by maximizing productivity and minimizing downtime on every run their vehicles make.
Croner has been designed to set a benchmark in the medium duty segment and is available in three gross vehicle weight (GVW) versions: MKE, LKE and PKE; and their wheelbase variants, with as many as 21 different configurations available to suit specific demands of various industries. Additionally, air suspension is available as an option on all variants to protect customers’ cargo, especially when travelling on rough roads.
Many markets face serious shortage of drivers due to the strenuous demands that are placed on them and this where Croner’s automatic transmission option will be crucial. The automatic transmission option can be used by customers to attract drivers, as the automatic transmission will makes driving easier and reduces fatigue for both experienced and inexperienced drivers.
