The Czech company Avia, which today is positioned as a manufacturer of automotive equipment, was founded in 1919. At that time, it was producing technology "far from the earth": its first product was a military fighter. However, after the Second World War, the company completely changed its profile of activities and switched to the production of trucks.
Today Avia is part of the Indian holding Ashok Leyland Ltd. The Indian manufacturing giant produces more than eighty thousand trucks per year and is the most important part of the Hyundai group. The production of the Indian corporation is diversified: it is engaged not only in the manufacture of automotive equipment, but also successfully operates in other areas of the economy.
Avia's lineup includes the D75, D90, D100 and D120 series trucks. The lifting capacity of the machines varies from 6 to 12 tons. Avia equipment is distinguished by a considerable number of superstructures on the chassis: more than forty variants of superstructures can be installed on the equipment. So, on the Avia chassis, special vehicles are produced for fire brigades and employees of law enforcement agencies, in the line - cars with 4x4 drive and a number of elongated modifications for the transportation of long or light, but bulky cargo. The design of Avia cars is simple and has a minimal amount of electronics. The optimized parabolic spring suspension and massive frame and axle design help to cope with adverse road conditions. Almost the entire range of Avia trucks has a powerful braking system developed by the company's engineers.
At the request of the customer, some Avia models are equipped with "small" (17.5 ") and" large "(19.5") wheels. This is done to increase ground clearance. The truck can also be equipped with side protection and rear bumper, and the cab can be equipped with a berth.
Avia is in a constant process of research and development. The result of this work is the unification of components and assemblies of vehicles. So, for example, the problem of changing the design of the braking system of Avia models has been solved.
