It is offered with several segment first features, which include tubeless tyres, headlamp bezels, beige colored dashboard, dual tone seats and transparent windows for better transparency. This autorickshaw uses a 3-valve engine, which provides more power and torque and makes for a fun to drive experience.
Piaggio India Chairman and MD Diego Graffi said that the Piaggio Ape NXT+ is a new offering from the company with CNG, LPG and petrol fuel variants. The growing demand for alternative fuel vehicles and the need to control pollution are giving impetus to CNG powered vehicles.
The Government of India is taking significant steps to promote alternative fuel options, which in turn is helping OEMs like Piaggio to innovate with their product portfolio to meet the needs of larger customers.
The new Ape NXT+ has been designed and developed in India for the Indian market and will be exported to overseas markets as well. With the launch of Ape NXT+, we aim to further strengthen our position in the alternative fuel segment.
He added that Piaggio is proud to add the Ape NXT+ to its fleet of three wheeler cargo and passenger vehicles. Ape NXT+ has been developed after extensive research and extensive customer feedback. With the rise in fuel cost, we understood the high mileage requirement of our customers with a cost saving approach and introduced a new vehicle.
The new Ape Rickshaw offers highest class mileage, comfort and more space for passengers along with minimal maintenance cost. The Ape NXT+ comes with contemporary design elements which make it the most stylish product. Its 3-valve engine has been designed for powerful pickup and exceptional driving experience.
