In an effort to improve its breakdown services, and to meet the demands of the growing number of highway users, especially during festive seasons, PLUS Berhad has acquired 17 units of Inokom AD3 trucks from authorised Inokom dealer, Minufa Automobile Sdn Bhd as a part of its fleet expansion plan.
While PLUS Berhad took delivery of nine units in 2012, the remaining eight units were delivered last month at a small ceremony that was held at PLUS headquarters in Kelana Jaya.
Powered by a D4DB 4-inline 3.9-litre Euro 2 engine, the Inokom AD3 TURBO has a maximum output of 130 PS at 2900 RPM and a maximum torque of 38KG M@1600 RPM. For fuel efficiency, it has a synchronized 2nd-5th gear transmission.
Available in four versions, 3570mm Standard, 3750mm Extended, 3925mm Extended and 4500mm Extended, the version purchased by PLUS was the 4500m Extended, as the long wheelbase and increased body space allows it to load a vehicle easily, making it ideal for providing breakdown assistance services and towing.
PLUS said that it is very satisfied with the truck’s performance so far, and that it is impressed with the level of aftersales support provided by Minufa Automobile Sdn Bhd. The company also added that it is looking at expanding its fleet in the near future, with the Inokom AD3 being the most likely candidate to join the workforce.
