Further, to cater to changing customer needs, the company also launched a new range of Apé CNG/ LPG vehicles in the three-wheeler category. Piaggio claims that the Ape’ Xtra LDX and Apé Auto DX are the first of its kind in the industry with water-cooled engines and offer best-in-class performance in terms of power, pick-up, mileage & maintenance. The new range of vehicles will meet the growing demand for commercial vehicle mobility solutions particularly suited to intra-city travel in India, and equipped with the latest-generation eco-friendly engines and state-of-the-art technological features.

As part of the ‘Super Warranty’ programme, customers buying Apé Diesel 3w vehicles will get a warranty for 42 months or 1.2 lakh kilometres (whichever is earlier). Customers buying the Ape’ CNG/ LPG/ Petrol 3w vehicles will be entitled to a warranty of 36 months or 1 lakh kilometres (whichever is earlier). The company is also offering a personal accident insurance cover of Rs. 1 lakh for each Piaggio customer buying a 3wh vehicle.
