23rd December, New Delhi: Ashok Leyland, flagship of the Hinduja Group and India’s leading commercial vehicle manufacturer, today, launched the 3-axle 6×2 Dual Tyre Lift Axle (DTLA) truck, AVTR 3120. With the launch of AVTR 3120, Ashok Leyland becomes the first and only player in the country to have a full range of dual tyre lift axle (DTLA) truck range with 31T, 40.5T, and 47.5T GVW nodes. This new product will operate at 31 Ton with the lift axle down (and take more load than conventional 6×2 trucks) and at 18.5 Ton with the lift axle up (lower fuel and operating cost similar to 4×2) during light load/partial load/return empty.
