Ashok Leyland launches new fuel efficient technology
New Delhi: Hinduja Group flagship firm Ashok Leyland on Wednesday said it has launched a new fuel efficient engine technology for its range of trucks, priced between Rs 15.1 lakh and Rs 18.83 lakh.
"It is our constant endeavour to seek ways to improve our customers' profitability and what better way than to reduce their burden on fuel cost. We are confident that our customers will find in this new technology an excellent value proposition," Ashok Leyland Managing Director Vinod K Dasari said in a statement.
The company introduced a range of haulage trucks fitted with twin speed rear axles and other modifications that "promises enhanced fuel efficiency of up to 10".
The commercial vehicle maker claimed that the new technology is ideal for an open highway condition that allows the driver to shift to fuel-economy mode while cruising.
"The twin speed technology will be on offer on some of the company's flagship models in the multi-axle range like the 2516IL, 2516XL, 3116IL and 3118IL, which are best suited for applications like market load, cement, tankers and general cargo and are already top performers in their class," Ashok Leyland said.
The package of such technology improvements will be extended to 4x2 haulage and buses as well, it added.
