The new Euro 5 range is for the Quester (heavy-duty) and Croner (medium-duty) trucks.
The upgrade also boasts enhanced features that will improve uptime, enhance efficiency, and optimise Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), all while lowering the vehicle’s environmental impact and retaining benefits from previous models.
The new Euro 5 range will be introduced in fast-growing and emerging regions around the world that are moving to adopt more stringent international emission standards in a bid to cut pollution and improve air quality. In most markets, UD Trucks’ new Euro 5 range will be introduced ahead of these regulations to better prepare businesses for the switch to a cleaner fleet.
Aside from featuring a Euro 5 system with SCR technology, the new range of Quester and Croner also features a new instrument cluster with real-time fuel coaching. This enhancement provides drivers with immediate and specific feedback on driving techniques that are more fuel efficient. The Quester, a heavy-duty truck that combines excellent fuel efficiency with durability, has evolved further to meet today’s transport and environmental challenges. The latest Euro 5 upgrade and new instrument cluster add to Quester’s other standout features. The Quester is connected and business-ready with UD Telematics which allows transportation companies to maximize efficiency with real-time vehicle tracking and geofencing. It has increased fuel efficiency with numerous features including ESCOT automated manual transmission. Combined with lighter tare weight and optimised driveline, fuel economy can improve by up to 10% compared to the previous Quester model. The Quester with ESCOT takes away the drivers’ need to shift an average of 1,000-1,500 times a day by automatically selecting the right gear at any given time. This leads to less stress and improves safety by allowing the driver to focus more on the road.
The new Euro 5 range of heavy-duty Quester and medium-duty Croner will be rolled out in key growth markets – across Southeast Asia, Middle East, Africa, and Latin America from October 2021 onwards. Source
