Ashok Leyland Ltd and Hino Motors Ltd. Japan entered into a Mutual Cooperation Agreement (MCA) where Ashok Leyland will utilize Hino's engine technology for Ashok Leyland's Euro-VI development and will support in development of Hino's engine parts purchasing in India for global operation. Hino and Ashok Leyland have had a cooperative agreement for engine production in India since 1986. By this mutual cooperation agreement, both companies will leverage each other's strengths in diesel engines.

Vinod K. Dasari, Managing Director & CEO of Ashok Leyland said in a statement, "We believe in long term partnerships, and have great respect for Hino Motors. This cooperation between our companies would be mutually beneficial and enable both of us to produce globally competitive products."

With emission norms getting stricter by the day, it was only time that company's like Ashok Leyland took the step in the right direction. While the joint development will help the company get ready even for the Bharat Stage VI norms that will come into force in April 2020, it will help the company gain ground in international markets too.

Interesting times ahead, as AL has developed their own Euro-6 ready Neptune series engines. The partnership with Hino will probably be used to offer more options to the customers based on application

Default re: Ashok Leyland & Hino Motors partner for Euro-VI development

After the 1980s collaboration, the two companies had joined hands again in 2003 to make the J series in India. However, the venture didn't take off and AL introduced its own engine (Neptune) with specs similar to J's.

It remains to be seen if the new Mutual Cooperation Agreement takes off, considering AL's indigenous development of BS-VI engines.
