India's second largest truck maker Ashok Leyland has earned order worth Rs 120 crore from logistics firm Rivigo, for a supply of 500 fully built vehicles equipped with iEGR (Intelligent Exhaust Gas Re-circulation) technology.
The iEGR techonolgy that was launched in April 2017, was indigenously developed by Ashok Leyland to achieve the BS-IV emission norms.
"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, translating to improved profits", Anuj Kathuria, President - Global Trucks, Ashok Leyland said.
“With this fresh order, we will expand our fleet size to over 2700 vehicles. Just like our idea of disruption in logistics, 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”, said Deepak Garg, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Rivigo.
