New Delhi [India], January 11 (ANI): With an eye on sustainable mobility solutions, leading commercial vehicle manufacturer Ashok Leyland on Wednesday unveiled six advanced mobility solutions at the Auto Expo 2023.
The flagship firm of the Hinduja Group demonstrated its range of vehicles, which would be powered by electric and hydrogen options. Among these were a battery electric vehicle, fuel cell EV, hydrogen internal combustion engine (ICE) vehicle, a liquefied natural gas vehicle, an intercity CNG bus and a mini passenger bus.
Dheeraj Hinduja, Executive Chairman, Ashok Leyland, while launching the new alternative energy products, said, "Ashok Leyland has always been a pioneer in introducing state-of-the-art technologies in the commercial vehicle space." Through this futuristic and innovative product portfolio, he said the company once again demonstrated its technological leadership, and more importantly its commitment to the Clean Mobility Mission.
