Piaggio unveiled the NT3 prototype at the Auto Expo, four years after it was first shown at the 2010 EICMA Moto Show in Milan. The NT3 seats features four wheels and three seats with the driver placed forward in a central line. Last time we heard, the vehicle was still on the road to production.

Piaggio calls the NT3 a tangible demonstration of the advanced level of Piaggio Group’s R&D in light four-wheelers.

The company decided to term the NT3 a “light 4-wheeler,” adding that it would be in a space that is of particular interest in India today. The NT3 protoype is powered either by a 230 cc or 350 cc petrol engine. Piaggio has also developed a 350 cc hybrid powertrain for the four wheeler.

    Good design, it would manage effortlessly in crowded roads.
    when can we expect on roads?

    This is what we need for India to substitute two wheelers…33 Kmpl is a good mileage, It’s compact dimensions allow to park in narrow conditions, efficient for personal mobility. I would prefer to take it around the city. If it can come with Variomatic gear and a light steering, nothing can match this. Please get it to India….we need this very badly…..change the way of travel from two wheelers to NT3.

      feel proud that we have NANO here.. do you think it would be that cheap so that people can take it as a substitute to two wheeler?

        I am not sure buddy…..concepts are always different than the final product……if they can do it at a reasonable price….there is always a market for good product. Some one at some time has to make a first move…..that puts them in a league….like Maruti did with small cars.
