Kamaz M1842 Wins Award


Recommended Posts

Press Release / September 9, 2014

The Kamaz M1842 heavy tractor range was awarded Best Commercial Vehicle of the Year at the 2014 AUTOTRANS international commercial truck show in Moscow.

The Kamaz M1842 (5490) long-haul tractor represents a significant step forward in design and technology for the Russia-based truckmaker. Its distinguishing feature is the Mercedes-Benz Axor-based cab designed jointly with Daimler AG.

Power comes from a 12-liter 428 horsepower Euro-5 (EPA2007) *Mercedes-Benz model OM457LA engine mated to a ZF 16-speed manual transmission or optional ZF AS Tronic automated manual transmission (AMT).

The M1842 4x2 heavy tractor is joined by the T2642 6x4 tractor and T2640 6x4 rigid (straight truck) variants.

*Daimler Trucks began a strategic partnership with Kamaz, Russian Technologies and Troika Dialog in December 2008, when Daimler acquired a 10% stake in Kamaz. In November 2009, Daimler Trucks and Kamaz signed agreements for the establishment of two joint ventures.

Daimler AG and KAMAZ each will own 50% of the first joint venture Fuso KAMAZ Trucks Rus, which is beginning to import semi-knocked-down (SKD) assembly kits of Fuso trucks from Japan in the first quarter of 2010. The trucks will be manufactured in Naberezhnye Chelny, where KAMAZ has its truck plant; the new company’s sales headquarters is in Kazan.

Daimler AG and KAMAZ each also will own 50% of the second joint venture, Mercedes-Benz Trucks Vostok, which will initially build the heavy-duty Mercedes-Benz Actros and Axor trucks in SKD assembly also located in Naberezhnye Chelny. The sales headquarters for Mercedes-Benz Trucks and Buses as well as Setra Coaches in Russia will remain in Moscow. Truck production is scheduled to commence in the second quarter of 2010, while the sales operations already began in January 2010 via the new company Mercedes-Benz Trucks Vostok.
