As the kingdom readies itself to become the largest construction and infrastructure destination in the world, we at Tata Motors are geared up to meet customers’ requirements of the market and will continue to introduce new products and solutions as we move forward.”
Rudrarup Maitra, head – International Business, Commercial Vehicles, Tata Motors added, “The Tata PRIMA has been built based on over six decades of experience in the commercial vehicles business and has been introduced, based on increasing customer preferences for a new-generation commercial vehicle with superior performance, suitable for more trips and long duty cycles, with the benefits of lowest turnaround time. An integral part of introducing the Tata PRIMA range here is Manahil International Company, a partner that has showcased tremendous enthusiasm and passion in the country’s commercial vehicles industry and the Tata Motors brand. They are as customer centric as we are. Through this partnership, we look forward towards further strengthening our relationship with our customers here in Saudi Arabia.”
