Ashok Leyland Ltd has launched India’s first made-in-India electric bus “Circuit” in Chennai, Tamil Nadu. The Circuit series vehicles are all exclusively engineered on India-specific platforms that can tackle varied topography, gradients and usage conditions. The bus is a zero-emission, non-polluting vehicle, created specifically for Indian road and passenger conditions. It is built on a simple, mass-market platform that will enable the operator to cater to customers in city centres with minimal operational and maintenance costs. These vehicles are integrated with a fire detection and suppression system (FDSS) and can travel 120 kilometers on a single charge.
