These products are available at lowest down payments from Nationalised Banks and with attractive finance options.
The introduction of the new range of CNG vehicles is a strategic initiative from Piaggio to reinforce its commitment of providing path-breaking solutions in the last mile transportation segment. Piaggio is a strong market leader in Jharkhand and especially in Ranchi with about 73% market share in total three wheelers. The new Ape’ City+ CNG, Apé Auto Dx CNG, Ape’ Xtra LDX CNG, and Ape’ Xtra LDX+ CNG vehicles, offer best in class performance in terms of power, pick-up, mileage & maintenance. With this new CNG range, operating costs will come down to almost half of that of petrol autos. The new CNG range will meet the growing demand for commercial vehicle mobility solutions particularly suited to intra-city travel in Jharkhand. Government’s focus on growing CNG infrastructure will not only increase the earnability for the drivers but also boost self-employment opportunities for the local youths of Jharkhand.

Ltd. said, “At Piaggio our core philosophy is to provide path breaking solutions in the last mile transportation segment and we are committed to provide best in class offerings to our customers.

Setting up of CNG stations in Ranchi under the Urja Ganga project will further strengthen the small commercial vehicle industry in Jharkhand. As far as Piaggio is concerned we have the largest range of CNG 3 wheelers in India. For Jharkhand market we have designed special exchange schemes for old petrol and diesel auto rickshaws. We also have tied up with nationalised banks for the benefit of our customers.
