These vehicles are supported by next Gen i-alert fleet management system with remote diagnostics.

Anuj Kathuria, Chief Operating Officer, Ashok Leyland, said, “The modular range can be customised to individual customer’s needs – load, terrain, application and operational requirements. We are introducing these vehicles much before the launch to establish the product superiority and enable the customer to get the benefits of higher performance and productivity.”

Earlier this year, Ashok Leyland seeded the first batch of BS-VI compliant trucks in the Delhi-NCR region to its customers. In order to meet the BS-VI emission standard, the company has developed the innovative iGen6 technology to ensure higher operating profits for customers.
