  1. worst cabin …………………………too much heat for driver ………….terrible……….should be airconditioned…
    leyland captain cabin is good …………….copy bharatbenz atleast………

  2. Concept of ” Customized Solution for all ” will certainly revolutionize the Commercial Vehicle market. Also, modularity, maintainability and interchangability will immensely reduce the TCO . Absolute ” Value for Money ” .

  3. All cabins have been reinvented to cater to various needs. Modularity will also reduce earlier issues.
    All cabin option available to cater to custom needs.

  4. Economical truck in Indian roads. Profitable to transport owners. Bharatbenz is too cost also not suitable for Indian roads and finally bharatbenz maintenance is too much compared to Ashok leyland.

  5. Customer service is very important to us, and we take great pride in keeping our customers happy. We can be contacted by Facebook messenger , email,(amankotak1790@gmail.com) and telephone, (9023242811) and are happy to offer advice
