BEIJING and PONTEDERA, Italy, October 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The CEO of Piaggio
The signing ceremony was attended by the Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Piaggio Group, Matteo Colaninno, who met in Beijing with Chang Rui, President of Foton Motor Group.
This will expand the range of Piaggio commercial vehicles with two new four-wheel electric variants, designed to meet the specific needs of intra-urban mobility, with a combination of compact dimensions and a payload capacity of at least one ton, particularly high for this vehicle class.
The new range of electric Porter models will be manufactured in Italy, at Piaggio Group's Pontedera factory. Marketing will begin at the end of 2024 in the main European countries through a network of dealers specialized in sales and support services for commercial vehicles, for maximum customer satisfaction.
The new Porter electric vehicles will feature innovative cybersecurity solutions and active and passive vehicle safety systems, including advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). The new content will also be available on Porter combustion models.
The agreements consolidate the positive collaboration established between the two Groups, which led to the introduction in 2021 of the first urban truck, the new Porter NP6, a bi-fuel model with compact dimensions and exceptional capacity, which has been very well received in the European market.
