Ashok Leyland plans to expand LCV business, international operations

Hinduja Group flagship company Ashok Leyland is gearing up to expand its light commercial vehicle business, international operations and defence mobility segment, according to company Chairman Dheeraj G Hinduja.

For the electric vehicle (EV) segment, Ashok Leyland is also looking to tap the proven success of its Optare bus range in the United Kingdom, for other locations as well. Addressing shareholders in the company’s Annual Report 2017-18, Hinduja said there would be a greater focus on cost control, revenue generation and return on capital employed (ROCE) going forward.

“In the years to follow, to sustain the growth momentum and take a great leap forward, your company is gearing to set globally bench-marked standards in reliability and after-market support,” he said.
