Best Light Commercial Vehicles in India

Introduction of Light Commercial Vehicles:

Light Commercial Vehicles (LCVs) own about 75% of the commercial vehicles market revenue in India. The primary use of LCVs is for carrying goods with mass varying from 3.5 to 7 tons and are used in industries with comparatively shorter delivery time, like fruits and vegetables, milk, poultry, fishery, etc. Their dynamic nature against lesser cost and lower maintenance make them a perfect choice for individual businesses and small-scale manufacturers or retailers. The market for LCVs in India is super competitive and tight to new entrants because few top brands like Mahindra, Bolero, and Tata have built strong reliability around their vehicles. 

This article discusses the Top 10 Light Commercial Vehicles in India and their details. You will also find the available tyre sizes and their recommended tyre patterns for the LCVs and their variants.
