Eicher has never been a significant player in Medium & Heavy commercial vehicles. We have already witnessed the 3 major ups and downs in CV industry in last 13 years and its for sure that any CV Organisation needs to have big portfolio to safeguard itself. They need to aggressively build up their portfolio with winning products alongwith a viable network.
Their absence in and below 3 ton segment is a big constraint in becoming a large player by volumes. Last Dec and this Auto Expo, they showcased their Pro series, which seems to be good and big hopes and expectations are there, provided these products perform on customer’s expectations.
While looking at B/L sheets, Eicher seems to be very good as it’s a near debt free company but there are always two sides of the coin. In my view they should leverage their strength to expand and grow organically or inorganically.
