LCV Overview - Ashok Leyland Corporate
The Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) vertical completes Ashok Leyland’s presence in the Commercial Vehicle space as a full-fledged CV player, offering customer solutions from 2.5 T to 55T and 13 seats to 79 Seats. The LCV Business also helps the company de-risk from the usual business cyclicity, associated with Medium & Heavy Commercial vehicles.
Rising fuel costs pinch our customer’s earnings and hence we have invested in superior engine technology and design which delivers best in class fuel efficiency. We have focused on superior ergonomics, driver comfort and safety, so our vehicles are not just meant for delivering goods, but also provide a superior experience. We were the first to launch AC cabins in our DOST (2011) and PARTNER (2014). We were the first to make power steering popular in small commercial vehicles. We have been robustly growing our After-Market presence, with more than 495 dedicated LCV touchpoints and 128 SAS Vans (Service at Site Vans). 14% of vehicle repairs happen through SAS Vans at customer door steps.
This holistic approach is ensuring at every stage our customers Win and thereby ensuring they experience ‘Aapki Jeet Hamari Jeet’ in its true sense.
We achieved a significant milestone with the rollout of the 200,000th LCV from its manufacturing facility in Hosur, Tamilnadu. Achieving the 200,000 mark in less than 6 years bears testimony to how customers find value in the offerings from the house of Ashok Leyland.
