VE Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles has in­tro­duced new trucks.

The In­dian e-com­merce seg­ment is turn­ing out to be a hot in­vest­ment op­por­tu­nity. On­line re­tail busi­ness in In­dia is es­ti­mated to grow over 1,200 per cent to USD 200 bil­lion (Rs.13,30,550 crore) by 2026, up from USD 15 bil­lion in 2016, ac­cord­ing to a re­cent re­port by fi­nan­cial ser­vices firm Mor­gan Stan­ley. As per the study, on­line re­tail will ac­count for 12 per cent of In­dia’s over­all re­tail mar­ket by 2026. Cur­rently it is es­ti­mated to be close to a mere three per cent. With e-com­merce and ex­press lo­gis­tics be­ing the pri­mary growth driv­ers, the vo­lu­mi­nous seg­ment in­dus­try in In­dia is claimed to be grow­ing at an ex­po­nen­tial rate of 50 per cent ev­ery year. An­tic­i­pat­ing such an

ex­plo­sive growth per­haps, Volvo Eicher Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles (VECV), to have a sig­nif­i­cant pres­ence in the seg­ment, has in­tro­duced new trucks. These were un­veiled at the ‘Eicher Pro Biz expo’ the com­pany or­gan­ised. Aimed at dif­fer­ent stake­hold­ers of the e-com­merce and lo­gis­tics in­dus­try, the new trucks are es­pe­cially en­gi­neered for the e-com­merce seg­ment. Out of the 14 trucks Eicher dis­played, the new trucks, priced be­tween Rs.16.26 lakh and Rs.27.4 lakh, these in­cluded five new vari­ants Eicher Pro 1000 and Eicher Pro 3000 se­ries vari­ants. To ad­dress the sec­toral de­mands across long haul, short haul and last mile de­liv­ery, the trucks, to be pre­cise, are Eicher Pro 1110, Pro 1110XP, Pro 3012, Pro 3014, and Pro 3015.
