Dubai: In the UAE vehicle market, Indian automaker Ashok Leyland sold a total of 1400 buses. Every bus will be used for educational purposes. School Transport Solutions and Emirates Transport in the United Arab Emirates bought the buses. Cost of a bus is Dh2 lakh (Rs 43.30 lakh). A 400 crore rupee transaction was completed.
At Ashok Leyland’s manufacturing facility in Ras Al Khaimah, all the buses were made. According to Executive Chairman Dheeraj Hinduja, 55% of the construction-related supplies were purchased in the UAE, with the remaining materials coming from India. The Gulf nations will soon begin using the electric buses that have already been implemented in India and the UK.
In the Gulf nations, a smaller version of the electric buses known as Switch is being tried. Building batteries that can resist the Gulf’s high temperatures is a difficulty. As soon as the batteries can withstand heat, he added, electric buses would be introduced in the Gulf nations.
In the UAE, Ashok Leyland holds a 70% market share. In the Indian market, 30%. Every year, the Ras Al Khaimah factory turns out 5000 vehicles. The production rate of the factory was at its highest. The new unit’s launch is now being prepared.
The car won’t be made in Ashok Leyland
In a new era, electric buses have been introduced. While switching to a new form, construction costs will go up. The price of buses will go up as a result. The company’s popularity is due in part to the affordable costs it gives for its buses. The conventional form has not changed for this reason.
There won’t be a break in the bus and truck building. Another industry is that of making cars. I won’t go into it. A barrier to producing additional vehicles is a scarcity of chips and semiconductors. Although manufacturing is being doubled by chip manufacturers in China and Taiwan, this is not enough. However, according to recent data, the lack of processors and semiconductors may be changing.
