Piaggio Vehicles on Tuesday launched online sales facility for its commercial vehicles to enable customers to book vehicle online by paying an initial amount of ₹1,000, check ex-showroom and on-road prices for their cities and apply for loan, among others.
The new sales initiative, which the company claims is first-of-its-kind in the CV sales space, comes nearly a month after Piaggio Vehicles Private Limited (PVPL) rolled out a digital platform for its Vespa and Aprilia brands of scooters.
PVPL is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Piaggio Group of Italy and has presence in small commercial vehicles and premium scooter segments in India.
