Ashok Leyland launches AVTR High Horse Power Tippers

Hyderabad, 20 December 2021: Ashok Leyland, flagship of the Hinduja group, and India’s leading commercial vehicle manufacturer, today launched the robust new AVTR tipper models with high horse power - AVTR 2832 and AVTR 3532. Powered by 8.0L A6 Series engines with iGEN6 technology, these trucks generate 320HP and deliver 1200NM torque. The globally benchmarked A6 engines are indigenously designed and developed by Ashok Leyland to offer excellent torque, incredible acceleration, pulling power and unmatched fuel efficiency.

The AVTR range has been hugely successful and much appreciated for its performance, reliability and durability. The AVTR range comes with H6 and A4 engines for the present and will deliver a maximum of 250 HP. However, there has been a need for a vehicle in the deep mining tipper segment, as the vehicles need to negotiate steep gradients with very high payloads. With the launch of AVTR 2832 and AVTR 3532, Ashok Leyland will be filling this gap and strengthening the tipper portfolio. The launch of these vehicles with the high horsepower A6 engines will help customers for applications like road construction, irrigation, deep mining, boulder quarry and others.

Commenting on the launch of the new AVTR Tipper models, Mr. Sanjay Saraswat, Head – M&HCV, Ashok Leyland, said, “With the launch of the High Horse Power Tippers; AVTR 2832 and AVTR 3532, we aim to provide products with higher productivity and efficiency to our customers. We have always attempted to identify product gaps and fill those with differentiated products, and the AVTR High Horse Power Tippers are a testimony to Ashok Leyland’s commitment towards the same. The High Horse Power Tippers are inbuilt with the state-of-the-art A6 series engines that are designed and developed indigenously. Staying true to our brand philosophy – Aapki Jeet, Hamari Jeet, we aim to deliver to the customers products that are suited for their specific needs”

Speaking on the occasion Sanjeev Kumar, Head – M&HCV, Sales & Network, Ashok Leyland, said, “The launch of the High Horse Power Tippers; AVTR 2832 and AVTR 3532, are very significant in this Geography. Hyderabad city and its adjacent regions have progressive, booming industries such as mining, horticulture, and agriculture that fuel the demand for these innovative trucks. The new range has been built with a focus on higher productivity, increased fuel efficiency, improved long-haul commutes with better ground clearance in difficult terrains, in-house designed hydraulic system to reduce the maintenance time, and will deliver overall on a lower total cost of ownership.”
