Kettering, UK-based Cumberland Platforms (CPL) has achieved National Small Series Type approval on its 4x4 Toyota Hilux A314 platform. The type approval covers both the access platform conversion and the vehicle being uprated to 3500kg with off road tyres.
The company claims that it is the only UK manufacturer with full National Small Series Type approval on the Isuzu or the Hilux 4x4s for both the suspension upgrade and the platform conversion. This means the vehicle not only meets with UK road regulations but has been fully tested and passed by the VCA for road stability and safety.
“We were the first to achieve National Small Series Type approval for a vehicle of this kind and we have now achieved it again on another of our bestselling models,” said CPL managing director Paul Murphy. “2015 has been our best year so far and 2016 looks set to be even better,” he said, “with many new models and products available and more investment quality and service.”
