Ashok Leyland has received an order from Senegal. This order comes from Senbus Industries, a company assembling urban buses in Dakar. The company has signed a contract for supplying 400 units of Ashok Leyland Eagle 916 Minibuses worth Euro 10.06 million. This order comes after the successful operation of 475 buses to Senegal’s Dakar Dem Dikk.
The Eagle 916 bus is a strong and sturdy platform, which has been developed exclusively for Africa. Featuring superior technology of inline pump with Euro III emission norms, maneuverability and fuel-efficiency, Eagle takes comfort, safety and profitability to the next level. The capital of Senegal will start receiving buses towards the end of June this year.
This project will provide mobility solutions to the country by expanding reach and covering the remote areas through AFTU, a leading private bus association of operator groups that run buses extensively across Senegal.
Ashok Leyland, the Hinduja Group flagship company in India, is engaged in the manufacturing of commercial vehicles and related components. The company’s products include buses, trucks, engines, defense and special vehicles.
