FROM LIGHT VANS to 38-tonne-gcw tractive units, in 1983 CM will be providing more useful information than ever on commercial vehicles of all kinds. We aim to provide the best independent test reports and operational trials.
The first of next year's will be made on the front-wheel-drive, Italian built, Talbot Express, regarded by many as the state of the art in light-van development. However, our test was far from troublefree, as you can read in Tim Blakemore's report, to be published in CMJanuary 1, 1983.
Meanwhile, the performance by a DAF 2500 over CM's Scottish route in late November was one of the most impressive in a long time. Why? And does the vehicle match up to your particular requirements? You can find out by reading the report in CM January 8.
