Daewoo » Prima
In 2008 Daewoo and TATA presented the first product of a new global range - the Prima truck, which is available under Daewoo and TATA brand names. Just as NOVUS range, the PRIMA series includes tractor trucks, dump trucks with load capacity from 15 to 25 tonnes, flatbed trucks with capacity from 5 to 25 tonnes. The new series is equipped with several types of engines: IVECO CURSOR 13 with capacity of up to 560 hp, DOOSAN DV11S (up to 450 hp) or CUMMINS ISM (up to 440 hp). Light versions are equipped with DL06K (280 hp) and NEF (260 hp) engines. The new cab with a modern design is installed to air suspension. The package includes air conditioning system and GPS. A choice of day cab and 3 types of cabins with a sleeping compartment and different roof height is available.
In 2012 Prima was updated. Tata Daewoo applied electronic ‘4 bag chassis air suspension’ to improve performance of Prima truck, protecting goods in a cargo box and enhancing ride quality and durability. It increases brake performance to 30% as against existing drum brakes by applying ‘Disc Brake’ and improves charging performance by applying 230 amp high capacity battery(option) and 100 amp ‘alternator(basic)’ for electronic convenience devices and special purpose vehicles(SPV). Drivers can enjoy cool and fresh indoor environment by applying ventilation seat that a cold wind blows from a seat in the summertime and heat wire seat enables drivers to keep warm in winter. In addition, Tata Daewoo Prima applied ‘Eco-driving System’ for fuel efficiency, ‘Two-dot side mirror’ to secure wide view angle, ‘High-load spring(front/rear)’ for SPV, new colors and new graphic schemes. The instrumental panel received a new colorful LCD.
