• Four examples of the latest Fiat goodsvehicle range with high-quality cab which were introduced at the Geneva and Amsterdam Shows this year will be featured at Earls Court. There will be three tractive units for gross combination weights between 32 and 44 metric tons and a rigid vehicle for use with a trailer at up to 40 tons gross.
Smallest vehicle is the 684T suitable for 32 metric tons gross combination weight and this has the new Fiat 200 bhp net diesel and 10-speed splitter gearbox with overdrive top. The other three chassis—a 619T1 tractive unit for 38 metric tons, a 697TP 6 x 4 tractive unit for 44 tons and the 619N I four-wheeler for use at up to 40 tons—all have the Fiat diesel introduced earFer this year which gives an output of 260 bhp net at 2200 rpm. And in all these three heavier vehicles the gearbox is an eight-speed splitter unit with overdrive top.
A feature of the new Fiat designs is that the cab is equipped to car-type standards but with controls and fittings sufficiently robust to stand up to commercial vehicle use.
