Ashok Leyland Enters Passenger Segment Stile
Ashok Leyland showcases the Stile, which is a van that shares the same platform with the Nissan NV200. Both the vans will be built on the same assembly line. However, the powertrains on them are different. The Stile will be powered by a 1.5-litre engine (not the 1.5 dCi) and this engine will churn out about 130bhp of power. At present testing is going on the Stile and Ashok Leyland can reduce the power to increase the fuel efficiency.
The Stile has a low floor that makes ingress and egress much more easier. The Stile will be available with a wide seating options as it will come with two and three rows of seating. The Stile will also be available as a cargo as Ashok Leyland will even be sold in the commercial vehicle market. Ofcourse the power on the commercial vehicle will be lesser and the interiors basic. There is a good possibility of a CNG powered Stile in the commercial market.
