Ashok Leyland has more than 50 touchpoints across Bangladesh and is one of the leading commercial vehicle brands in the country. The company further plans to increase the volumes and footprint in overseas markets, especially in SAARC, GCC and Africa regions. “Exports have been a strong focus for us to de-risk from cyclicality in the Indian market," Singh added.

Apart from supplying various vehicles from India, the company also assembles its range of trucks, buses, and LCV vehicles locally at IFAD Auto Dhamrai plant in Bangladesh.

Late last year, Ashok Leyland delivered various armoured vehicles to J&K Police for anti-terror operations that were equipped with upgraded modern technology and with additional safety features. The vehicles named as 'Black Panthers' are fully air-conditioned, equipped with 14 CCTV cameras, PTZ Camera, 360 degrees view camera, public address system, flashlights, advanced medical kit, power backup, among other security features.
