Tata Motors on Thursday said it has bagged an order for 500 next-generation low-floor urban city buses from the Ivory Coast.
According to the company, as part of the order, it has delivered 117 buses to the SOTRA - Abidjan transport company.
"Built on Tata Motors next-generation HCV (heavy commercial vehicle) bus platform, the Tata LPO 1924 RESLF Abidjan's next-generation bus has been developed with inputs from SOTRA, with a high degree of customisation based on feedback gathered through city trials, over the last couple of months," the company said in a statement.
The auto major said the buses were financed under the EXIM Bank of India for operation by the SOTRA - Abidjan Transport Company.
