Could it be Eicher? Im just guessing looking at the body, the color and style and tires, quite similar to Eicher.

The greenhouse says it all, it is the AL AVIA that was displayed at the Auto Expo, however what surprises me is its registration RTO, Chennai. Why on earth has AL registered it there?

I saw the same with a white cargo loader near the Forum signal moving towards Adugodi yesterday evening. Could not take photos due to the traffic conditions.

Isn't AL based in Chennai? I remember seeing most of their trial vehicles with chennai registration marks.

AL has a factory in Ennore near Chennai. It's a big one and if any use local trains from Central to Gummidipoondi route - you can see the factory on both sides. Yes - train lines cuts through the factory!

You can gather more info about the factory @ Manufacturing Facilities | Ashok Leyland

And why not ? AL is headquartered in Chennai. It's sprawling factory at Ennore, Chennai, is the first AL factory anywhere in India. It is spread on both sides of the Grand Trunk railway track, with long traffic-light-controlled-subways, beneath the tracks, connecting both sides of the factory.

Where else would they do it? Ennore (north chennai) is their mother plant - and their next best facility is Hosur (TN again) - did you miss it?

Hi Folks

Yea, that, for sure, is Avia from Ashok Leyland.

Attaching a picture taken at Auto Expo, way back in January 2008.

Cheers

I was of the opinion that the Hosur plant is their main plant, especially for L&MCVs, hence the confusion when I saw the Green Hills Chennai RTO number.
Thank you for the clarification.
