10 October 2022
The Client Day was held on the territory of the official dealership of KAMAZ PTC in Perm Krai – OOO Parma Motors. During the event, KAMAZ presented its vehicles.
With a welcoming speech, Alina Motygullina, Head of Service for Development of Dealership Network of KAMAZ PTC, addressed the audience. She told about the company’s opportunities in the production of a wide range of trucks and passenger vehicles, as well as about the developed dealership and service network of KAMAZ making vehicles, genuine spare parts and high-quality service accessible. It was also mentioned that the event is becoming more and more fruitful from year to year. “On the Client Days we expand our client base and tell about novelties. It is important that on these two days we are working not only with clients, but also with suppliers – to discuss potentials of cooperation, the representatives of KAMAZ PTC will visit several local enterprises,” told Alina Motygullina.
During the event, the reports were delivered by Director of Department of Passenger Transport of KAMAZ PTC Danil Ginyatullin, vehicle operation instructor of AO TFK KAMAZ Yevgeny Skrylyov, and others. Also, during a round table meeting, the managers and experts answered the participants’ questions.
The exhibition area presented a wide range of KAMAZ vehicles for various industries. They include a freight truck KAMAZ-65116, KAMAZ-COMPASS 12, a bus NEFAZ 529-30-52, a dump truck KAMAZ-6520, a curtain-sided semitrailer 588516-0240201-08, a fuel tanker on the KAMAZ-65115 chassis and other vehicles.
A long-haul truck tractor KAMAZ-54901 has become the flagship of the exposition. The vehicle is designed for intercity and international transportation as part of the road train with various semitrailers (from ordinary curtain-sided semitrailers and refrigerators to special low roaders and grain carriers). It is equipped with a new fuel-saving, 6-cyinder in-line engine KAMAZ generating 450 hp, an automated gearbox. The comfortable cab with a high roof 2.5 meters wide with an even floor helps you feel homey on long-haul routes. The advantages of the truck tractor are the following: enhanced ergonomics, large cabin space, modern nodes and components, and most important – a lower owning cost in comparison with that of the previous generation of KAMAZ trucks. This was achieved primarily due to a lower fuel consumption and a service interval increased to 120,000 km.
A long-haul truck KAMAZ-65656 was also presented. This 6x4 vehicle of the K5 generation with a low cab replaced a model with Index 65206 from the line of K4 truck tractors. The truck is meant for operation as part of the road train with GVW up to 44 tonnes. The vehicle is equipped with a new 6-cylinder in-line engine KAMAZ generating 450 hp and an automated gearbox. The cab and suspension of the truck ensure comfortable driving.
The company’s opportunities in the production of passenger vehicles were presented on the example of a restyled city low-entry bus NEFAZ 5299-30-52. The extra-large bus is equipped with a diesel engine with power of 221.5 kW, an automated gearbox and independent front suspension providing smooth running. The hull plating is made using a new process, of composite materials, which fully protects from corrosion. For passengers’ comfort, there is a spacious passenger compartment with a large standing area and convenient grab handles. The bus features a kneeling system to tilt the bus body for easy picking up and dropping off passengers. The bus fully complies with the Accessible Environment program and is comfortable for transportation of the mobility impaired and passengers with children. The total passenger capacity of the bus is 98 people, including 31 seats.
The Client Day of KAMAZ PTC in Perm was supported by the Ministry of Industry and Trade of Perm Krai and the Regional Center of Engineering. On the Day of KAMAZ in Perm, 13 enterprises of Prikamye presented their latest developments, ideas and projects. First Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of Perm Krai Elena Degtyaryova emphasized that the event promoted the development of producers’ cooperation and expansion of partnership contacts. “This is the second year we conduct this large-scale event – the Days of KAMAZ in Perm Krai. Except the exhibition of vehicles, this is a venue for bright discussions, and we are outlining our work for the whole year ahead. This ground is for enterprises of Perm Krai to share their achievements and build up plans for cooperation with KAMAZ,” she noted.
