Tata Motors, along with its authorised distributor Nitol Motors, today launched the all-new Tata LPT 1212 light commercial vehicle in Bangladesh. 

The Tata LPT 1212 light truck powered by the 497 TCIC common-rail engine with proven engine life and reparability. The LPT 1212 is designed to deliver improved performance and better fuel efficiency with lower emissions and levels of noise and vibrations.

The engine is configured to deliver optimum power output at even lower rpms, enabling driving with lesser gearshifts while providing better fuel efficiency. Tata Motors says the bigger clutch diameter of 330mm allows easy engagement of gears leading to driving comfort and efficient power transmission. The high ground clearance of 245mm helps transport cargo even over rough terrain. The truck is shod with bigger tyres (9X20 – 16 PR).

Abdul Matlub Ahmed, chairman, Nitol Motors, said, “Our local expertise coupled with a robust dealer network across the country has been crucial to our success thus far. With our partner Tata Motors, we are confident about making a significant impact in the light truck segment with Tata LPT 1212 and thus winning a significant market share.”

Rudrarup Maitra, head, International Business, Commercial Vehicles, Tata Motors said, “The Tata LPT 1212 has been specifically designed keeping in mind the unique local Bangladesh market loading requirements and duty cycle. With various product enhancements such as a powerful engine, high ground clearance, bigger clutch diameter and tyre size, this vehicle is the best choice for customers in this segment. We are confident of further strengthening our market leadership in Bangladesh with this launch.”
