Mahindra & Mahindra has launched BS VI-variant of its flagship three-wheeler brand the Alfa. The Alfa three-wheeler is available in both passenger and cargo variants with 4 offerings catering to varied customer segments.

With 9.4 hp power and 23.5 Nm torque, the new Alfa offers improved pickup and better pulling power on slopes. The three-wheeler range provides mileage of 28.9 km per litre in passenger and 29.4 km per litre in load variant.

According to Veejay Nakra, CEO – Automotive Division, Mahindra & Mahindra “We are happy to launch our flagship 3-wheeler Alfa in BS VI variant with best in class fuel efficiency, higher power, torque and driveability, which provide better operating economics and comfort to the end users. There has been some delay in launching our BS VI range of 3 wheelers, given the supply chain disruptions due to Covid-19. With all of that behind us and the onset of festive season, we see good demand in both load and passenger segments and we are gearing up our production accordingly to meet this demand. With these launches we are confident to regain our spot amongst the top 3 players in the 3-wheeler segment.”

In its new avatar the Alfa gets a completely new powertrain and water-cooled engine that has undergone significant testing both on and off field, clocking over 400,000km. The OEM says it also aims to enrich the lives of its three-wheeler customers through Uday Program which offers benefits such as accidental death insurance cover of Rs 10 lakh, child education scholarship and referral benefits on service among others.
