Ashok Leyland has rolled back its decision to make a big name in the car market and stopped the production of its sole offering - the STILE MPV. The MPV was manufactured in alliance with Japanese Nissan Motors. Ashok Leyland will now concentrate on their core business of manufacturing the commercial vehicles only.

"We have stopped production of STILE. It was not doing well as expected. We may reenter the segment if we see prospects," said Vinod K. Dasari, Managing Director, Ashok Leyland. Leyland made an investment of around Rs 224 Crores for the project. Dasari added that the JV with the  Nissan will remain intact and they will continue rolling out light commercial vehicles.

Ashok Leyland Stile was powered by a 1.5-litre diesel unit that produces 75 bhp of power and was mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The Stile was a competent MP and had a seating capacity of 8 people. Stile had seating options of 2 and 3 rows and power steering to make driving easy. Ashok Leyland will continue to manufacture the Dost LCV and its variants in association with the Nissan Motors Inc.
