Rain­ing ICVs

Commercial Vehicle - - LETTERS - Ra­jesh Nath, Kolkata

The ar­ti­cle on Mahin­dra Fu­rio was in­ter­est­ing. It pro­vided a good in­sight into how the LCV and ICV truck mar­ket is chang­ing. It also pro­vided a good in­sight into how these trucks will cater to new ar­eas of ap­pli­ca­tions. Wasn’t it a few months back that Tata Mo­tors an­nounced the launch of its en­tire range of Ul­tra ICV? Such an­nounce­ments and in­tro­duc­tions seem to sug­gest that LCV and ICV trucks are sud­denly get­ting a lot more at­ten­tion than they did ear­lier. Whether it is the chang­ing trans­porta­tion sce­nario in a post GST en­vi­ron­ment, will be in­ter­est­ing to see. It will be also in­ter­est­ing to see if these modern ICV trucks re­place the ex­ist­ing ICV trucks that have come to have long le­gacy. Both, the Fu­rio and the Ul­tra look much like the modern light and medium-duty trucks seen in var­i­ous other markets of the world. Seem­ing to of­fer com­fort and modern ameni­ties go­ing beyond their looks, these trucks also sig­nal a change in the In­dian CV in­dus­try.
