I think TM may rework its multi axle halage stategy.
Hey this post is a typo error!
I meant it as LPT 2513 and mistakenly typed as LPT 2523.
There is no such model called LPT 2523 available with TM.

The 2523 export model is (or at least was) available, though only chosen by a limited number of customers.

As for the 2513, as it is the 2518 was selling more than the 2515/2516, so dont expect big numbers from it. Its for those few extremely price sensitive customers who dont want to pay for the 2516/2518.

The present day Cummins 6BT5.9L BS3 engines supplied to TML are all 24valve engines, be it 130HP(1512), 180HP(2518) or the 230HP(2523). The differnce being in the FIP calibration. Meanwhile 2523 seems to be withdrawn in Tipper segment.

Does TML have any model as 2516/2515 (cummins engine) presently! (2518 was there in BS2 and well as BS3, but 2515/2516 does not)

The BSIII models are 24valve but the BSII ones I beleive were 12 valve versions. But the 230hp ones were always 24valve.

As of now there is a 2513TC, 2516 TCIC and the 2518 TC versions.

Looking at the blog, it seems like one showing a lot of poster/logo etc designs. Thus this may be just a poster design made for the U-truck by some designer, who at the time just used any truck pic that he could find on the net.

I think, the 2nd pic shows that the Ashok Leyland logos have been photoshopped on.

My bad, I didn't even bother to look at the source site. Julupani is right here.

This is in the net for quite a long time atleast for about more than 10 months.
No idea who have made this.

As we are discussing about domestic models hope you are not speaking about export models.
And even in export model there is nothing like 2516 TCIC as of now.
But my sources are limited to Jamshedpur and Lucknow but if there is something produced elsewhere kindly let us know..

what will be approximate cost difference between 2513 and 2518.
I think they are not pricing it much higher

The 2516 with the 697 engine has almost always been on offer, but doesnt rack up high sales.

I dont know exactly how much costlier the 2518 would be. But I think there will be a set of customers for whom even a saving of 50grand will be considerable. Agreed the set will be small, but its for this small group that the 2513 exists.

I doubt Scania can say anything about some designer using an image which he probably found on the net. I dont think this poster was for public consumption anyway.

Almost on offer... but where?
Ok let me conclude things.
There is no such model called LPT 2516 for sale and all I could tell is you are only giving these statements...
