Adding to the long list of innovations at Ashok Leyland is the readiness of its CVs to meet the BSVI emission norms. Highlighting its ability as well as a penchant to innovate and arrive at unique solutions by getting an inline mechanical fuel pump driven injection system to meet BSIII emission by working in association with Bosch roughly a decade ago, Ashok Leyland has announced that it is the first Indian OEM to meet BSVI emission norms across its full range of heavy-duty trucks (16.2-tonne GVW and above). Revealing iEGR (Intelligent Exhaust Gas Recirculation) technology in 2017 to meet BSIV emission norms for engines in the 130 hp and 400 hp range that did away with the need to deploy a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system, which would lead to an increase in operating costs, the CV major has invested Rs.600 to Rs.700 crore over the last four years to get its CVs to comply with BSVI emission regulations that are scheduled to come into force from April 2020. Stating that it has combined iEGR and in-line fuel pump technology to come out with a BSIV compliant ‘Innoline’ powertrain in the second half of 2018, the CV OEM has received BSVI certification from the Automotive Research Association of India (ARAI).
