Mumbai, July 25, 2019: Mahindra Truck and Bus Division (MTBD), a part of the USD 20.7 billion Mahindra Group, today unveiled Mahindra CRUZIO, a brand-new range of buses based on its latest Intermediate Commercial Vehicles (ICV) platform. Aimed at the employee transport segment, the CRUZIO marks the company’s debut in the popular Lastwagen Pullman Overhang (LPO) segment of buses which is gaining momentum as it offers an enhanced consumer experience.

Going forward, we will also launch the school and stage bus variants to further increase our portfolio."
Mr. Vinod Sahay, CEO, Mahindra Truck and Bus and Construction Equipment Divisions, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd., added, "The CRUZIO demonstrates Mahindra’s ability to bring the best to Indian customers, and was developed on the basis of meticulously gathered consumer insights. Bus operators in this segment are clearly looking for a solution that can balance end-user benefits, as well as helping them optimize costs. I am confident that similar to the BLAZO X HCV & FURIO ICV range, the CRUZIO LPO Bus range will also set new benchmarks for performance, earnings and deliver better value to our customers."
From the safety perspective, the CRUZIO meets the Rollover Test norms as per AIS 031 and the BUS Body code as per AIS 052. It is also compliant with the latest regulatory requirements of AIS 153, which has stringent noise and vibration standards.
