Ashok Leyland has unveiled Innoline, a BS4 engine driven by inline fuel pump for commercial vehicles. After the success of the first mechanical pump for BS3 engines in India and the very well received iEGR (intelligent exhaust gas recirculation) technology, Ashok Leyland has combined both these indigenous innovations to successfully introduce the inline pump for BS4 engines for the first time in India. Innoline combines the efficiency and performance of the iEGR technology with the simplicity of the renowned ‘Sada’ or 'Inline' pump. Ashok Leyland is the only OEM in the world to have an inline pump for BS4 or Euro 4 engines that is also certified by the ARAI (Automotive Research Association of India). This technology can be upgraded and used for BS6 engines as well.
Vinod Dasari, Managing Director, Ashok Leyland, said, "Innovation is making things simpler and less complicated. With BS3 inline fuel pump and iEGR, this is exactly what we did - delivering several benefits to our customers like lower operating cost, lower maintenance and no hassles of AdBlue. iEGR is already a success in the Indian market, with more than 1 lakh vehicles sold last year. And now we are making it even simpler by introducing the Innoline technology for our H-series engines. This technology will have an inline pump for our BS4 engine, taking iEGR further and giving our customers an even simpler system, enabling easier maintenance and other cost efficiencies. This technology is also future-ready as this can also be upgraded to BS6 emission norms.”
Innoline, as the name suggests, is the innovative inline pump or the upgraded ‘Sada’ pump. This inline pump is well known in the Indian commercial vehicle industry and is preferred by the drivers and service mechanics alike. Innoline makes the maintenance of the engine much simpler for the mechanics.
