    At present, US company Smith Electric imports the cab/chassis from Avia in the Czech Republic and use it as the basis of their all-electric Smith Newton delivery truck, of which several hundred are in daily use in Europe and the USA. Will AL continue supplying Smith Electric, from the Pantnagar facility?
