Commenting on the development, Diego Graffi, Chairman and MD, Piaggio Vehicles said, “At Piaggio, we believe in providing path breaking solutions in the last mile transportation segment with best in class technology offerings to our customers. Our new BSVI performance range has been a huge success in the market due to superior specs than competition products. Ape’ Xtra LDX +, with longer deck size, will enable our customers to earn more and will further strengthen our position as a leader in the 3 wheeler cargo category.”
Saju Nair, EVP and Head of Commercial Vehicle Business, Piaggio India said, “We are pleased to be launching the Ape’ Xtra LDX + diesel cargo. Through market research we saw the latent need of a longer deck product required by the customer to carry high volume loads with higher unit length. The more powerful 599 smart BSVI engine gave us an opportunity to develop this variant on our already proven diesel platform. We feel that the 6ft variant will especially be suitable for captive customers & e-commerce delivery businesses and will give stiff competition to 4Wh SCV cargo products”.
