Piaggio Ape mini 0.5 truck india

Piaggio India has launched the 0.5 tonne Ape Mini truck and has priced its new four wheel light commercial vehicle at Rs. 1.74 lakhs across all of India. Regular readers would remember we had brought spy pics of the Ape Mini few months ago.

The Ape Mini is said to return 29 kms to the liter, thanks to its incredibly fuel efficient engine and comes with a 15-month warranty and 5 free services. We expect a passenger version of the Ape Mini 4-wheeler to follow soon.

Ravi Chopra, Chairman and Managing Director, Piaggio India –

We have consistently gone to the market with our customers in mind. We are confident that the ape mini will outclass others in the half-tonne four-wheeler segment.

Piaggio India is one of the leading players in the light commercial vehicle segment with the Ape three wheeler having more than 10 lakh customers so far. With the Ape Mini four wheeler Piaggio would be take the fight right to the doorstep of Mahindra Gio and the soon to be launched Tata Ace Zip (Penguin).
