Ashok Leyland, a flagship of the Hinduja Group Company, delivered its first BS-VI compliant trucks in the Delhi-NCR region. The BS-VI emission norms are set to come into enforcement from April 2020.
The company aims to gear itself throughout to be ready for the emission norms to kick into action. They also recently unveiled a modular platform for vehicle development at their product development center near Chennai.
In a statement, Anuj Kathuria, Chief Operating Officer, Ashok Leyland, said, “Our new BS VI iGen6 technology developed in-house is suited for Indian operating conditions. In addition, we are also introducing our new range of modular trucks that will deliver superior customized solutions to customers.”
To comply with the norms, BS-VI commercial vehicles require the usage of commensurate fuel, which has already begun circulating in Delhi and Chennai. Kathuria further claimed that he “foresaw no challenge in fuel availability for the company’s BSVI products.”.
Commenting on the increase in price, Kathuria said that the hike from BS-IV to BS-VI compliant vehicles will be on the higher side as compared to the price increase after the introduction of BS-IV emission norms.
Ashok Leyland is also deemed to have new models in the pipeline, to be launched in 2020.
