Piaggio ups its game in last-mile transport

Piaggio Vehicles (PVPL), a 100% subsidiary of the Italian Piaggio Group, has announced the launch of the new Porter 700, confirming its commitment to customers’ changing needs and Piaggio’s core philosophy of providing path-breaking solutions in the last mile transportation segment.

The Porter 700 is a strategic initiative from Piaggio to expand its wings in the last-mile transportation category through the four-wheeler cargo market. It is a revolutionary product adapted for Indian conditions on the basis of Piaggio’s on-going customer feedback programme and will further consolidate and strengthen Piaggio’s presence in the last-mile commercial vehicle industry.

The Porter 700 incorporates the exacting high standards of style, design, performance and technology that Piaggio is known for internationally. It offers the best mileage in its class. It has superior power (14.75 hp) and torque (40 Nm), enabling superior pick-up and acceleration. The payload capacity of 700 kg and long cargo deck (30 sq feet) ensures superior load-carrying capability. It also has the  highest ground clearance (218 mm) in its category to negotiate bumpy ride easily.

Explaining the company’s new initiative, Piaggio Vehicles Chairman Ravi Chopra said, “Piaggio would continue to provide technological solutions in the last-mile transportation market and would focus on further strengthening and dominating this category particularly the last-mile transportation cargo market. The three-wheeles and four-wheelers will continue to coexist.”

Piaggio Vehicles CEO Diego Graffi said, “Anticipating our new-age customer’s needs, the Porter 700 has been conceived as a modern, stylish vehicle with many new features and yet delivering its core values of exceptional reliability, fuel efficiency and earn ability, for Piaggio to continue its dominance in the last mile transportation cargo segment.”
