New Delhi, Nov 15 (UNI) Hinduja Group firm Ashok Leyland today introduced a new 49-tonne heavy commercial vehicle (HCV), 4921TT, priced at Rs 19.75 lakh.

''We are targeting to sell nearly 1,000 units of 4921TT in the 49-tonne HCVs segment,'' company's Chief Operating Officer Vinod K Dasari told reporters here.

He said the market for 49-tonne HCVs is growing and is expected to reach 2,000 units by March 2008.
