PIAGGIO GROUP: INDIAN THREE-WHEELER RANGE ALREADY COMPLIANT WITH NEW BS VI EMISSION NORMS

THE GROUP CONFIRMS ITS PLACE AT THE CUTTING EDGE OF TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION 

Milan, 24 January 2020 – The Piaggio Group (PIA.MI) said it already begun production in India of three-wheel vehicles compliant with the new Bharat Stage VI emissions norms. With this, Piaggio becomes the first three-wheeler maker in the country to have upgraded its entire range to the new standards.

The diesel models feature a completely new power pack, a 599cc engine, a 5-speed gear box and a new aluminium clutch. The upgraded cargo range comes with a larger cabin, while the passenger range has new safety doors for commuters. The alternative fuel range is equipped with one of the most advanced drive-trains in the industry and a hi-tech 230cc 3-valve engine.

The Piaggio Group has always paid special attention to product engineering in order to minimise emissions, a policy that has enabled it to comply with the new laws ahead of time without the risk of fall-outs on its production and sales.

In India, the Piaggio Group offers the widest selection of vehicles for last-mile transportation of both goods and passengers.

"We are delighted to be the first manufacturer in India to offer three-wheelers compliant with the new norms and to be BS VI ready with our entire product range. We began preparations well ahead of time and so today we are excellently placed for the transition from BS IV to BS VI,said Piaggio India CEO Diego Graffi.
