Ashok Leyland has bagged an order worth over INR 1200 million from logistics company Rivigo. It will buy 500 fully-built vehicles, driven by the innovative iEGR (Intelligent Exhaust Gas Recirculation) technology, which was developed indigenously by Ashok Leyland. Developed to achieve the BS-IV emission norms, iEGR technology was launched in April 2017 for engines up to 400HP – a feat no other OEM has achieved globally, the company claims.
“Ashok Leyland has been an integral part of Rivigo’s story since the beginning of their journey. They trust us as their partners and we are glad that we have been able to deliver. This fresh order is a testimonial to the Indian, Intelligent and Innovative offerings of iEGR BS-IV technology, which
translates to, ‘No Adblue’, ‘No Electronics’ and ‘Better Mileage’. Today, our BS-IV iEGR vehicles are giving up to 10 per cent better fuel economy when compared to our BS-III range. This is helping all our customers to improve their total cost of operations by up to 15 per cent,” said Anuj Kathuria, President – Global Trucks, Ashok Leyland.
Deepak Garg, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Rivigo, said that with this order the company will expand its fleet size to over 2700 vehicles. We see iEGR as a technology disruption which has a huge upside. For us it means better uptime, hassle-free operations, better mileage, and improved cost of ownership, he added.
