Tata Daewoo Commercial Vehicle Co Ltd (TDCV), one of the largest commercial vehicle manufacturer of South Korea and a 100 per cent subsidiary of Tata Motors, has developed South Korea's first liquefied natural gas (LNG) powered heavy tractor-trailer, an environment-friendly commercial vehicle.

The company that was acquired by Tata Motors in 2004, posted a turnover of Rs 1,584 crore in 2005-06, a growth of over 34.5 per cent over the preceding year's turnover of Rs 1,178 crore.
