ARGENTINA Agrale, Megacar and Allison Transmission presented the Agrale MA15 city bus, equipped with an Allison automatic gearbox, at a launch which took place in four key cities near Buenos Aires – Córdoba, Tucumán, Neuquén and Mendoza.
Equipped with an Allison T270, the Agrale MA15 is targeted toward fleets utilising locallyproduced vehicles. In particular, these fleets seek transmissions offering technological advances which help optimise the vehicle’s manoeuvrability, passenger safety, uptime, fuel consumption and productivity.
The Allison transmission has an extensive track record in the Argentine passenger transport industry. The partners organised the ‘Reliability Experiment,’ a series of test-drives designed for participants to experience the MA15 Agrale first hand.
Roberto Larossa, Regional Manager of Allison Transmission Argentina, said: “The events have been a great success in terms of the number of participants attending and taking part in the test drives. No one wanted to miss the opportunity to drive a low floor, front engine, Allison equipped passenger bus.”
Juan Carlos Compostela, Sales and Marketing Manager at Megacar S.A, said: “Throughout the presentations in each of the four cities, we have seen great support from our customers with attendance from companies representing diverse sectors. We found the new Agrale MA15 extremely well-received on many levels including cost, service and support.”
