    How the "EDAG Genesis" turned the automobile world upside down

01/06/2016

The newest generation of an authentic off-road vehicle!

The engineering teams of AGRALE, the traditional, genuinely Brazilian, off-road vehicle manufacturer, and the engineering team of EDAG, locally and internationally recognized for the quality of its designs in the mobility industry, have united their efforts and know-how to reinvent the most iconic off-road vehicle, the AGRALE Marruá G2.

The two teams came together in true collaboration, summing up extensive experience in military products with German-based engineering and process best practices guidelines. AGRALE and EDAG, acting as a single team, generated amazing results in optimizing the value of this vehicle.

The Agrale’s Marruá Gen 2 holds the recognized DNA of robustness and extreme off-road capability. The revamped model is able to pass through 80 cm height wetlands without snorkel, showcases impressive approach and departure angle of 57 and 30 degrees, respectively, as well as an impressive 60% ramp capacity. Additionally, all models have 90 degree opening doors, easing the ingress and egress of officers in emergency approaches. The military version is able to be launched from an airplane by parachute or transported by helicopter through cables hoisting shackles in bumper. Even more beautiful with its renewed and robust appearance, imposing undeniable admiration and respect in a multitude of designs and uses, the new Agrale Marruá Gen 2 truly sets a new standard in its vehicle class.

The AGRALE-EDAG joint development partnership, from product concept and goals definition to project management, co-design and integration with component suppliers, including road to lab and math virtual validation, has extensively used state of the art CAD and CAE tools. The partnership, for example, was able to achieve a lighter and, at the same time, more resistant product, enabling an increase of its cargo capacity to the equivalent of two additional soldiers. A new suspension tuning resulted in a significant improvement in the dynamic behavior of the vehicle, making it more pleasant for road and city traffic usage. A huge achievement for the project was the parts and systems communization among all its 15 models, facilitating logistics handling, as well as production and assembly process, with significant gains in productivity for AGRALE Plants in the city of Caxias do Sul, Rio Grande do Sul state, Brazil. The new Agrale Marruá Gen 2 is truly representative of EDAG´s commitment to develop strong partnerships and bring German-based design & process engineering and best practices to the market.
