      Mahindra has now introduced its latest version of the load carrying three wheeler in the form of the 2012 Alfa Plus, which is a longer deck version, allowing for extra luggage carrying capacity. The 20% increase in wheelbase of the Alfa Plus three wheeler also gives this goods carrier higher stability, and that is something which is a big positive as three wheelers are usually highly unstable.

      Apart from the higher load carrying capacity and the longer wheelbase, the Alfa Plus goods carrier comes with an improved transmission, which is said to increase the life of the gearbox by 20%. Also, the clutch life, which is a major component that has a short replacement life cyle, has been increased by 50%, which is a major boost. Mahindra has also boosted peak torque by 8%, to handle the higher loads that the Alfa Plus can now carry due to the longer deck. The Alfa Plus produces a peak power of 7.5 Bhp and peak torque of 18 Nm, which is a 1.3 Nm increase from the previous figure of 16.7 Nm.

      The Mahindra Alfa Plus three wheeler is powered by a direct injection, single cylinder, diesel engine displacing 395cc. The air cooled engine is mated to a 4 speed transmission with 4 forward and one reverse gear. Electric start is standard for this diesel engine. The Alfa Plus comes with a driver’s cabin that can seat two adults, has doors and features a monocoque chassis. The Mahindra Alfa Plus will be manufactured at two locations, at Zaheerabad and Haridwar. The three wheeler will be sold from Mahindra’s commercial vehicle dealerships across India.

      The Mahindra Alfa Plus comes with a 24 months manufacturers warranty as standard. The Mahindra Alfa Plus will be aimed predominantly at the intra city goods carrying space, to carry a variety of goods. It also remains unclear whether Mahindra will continue selling the shorter wheelbase version of this three wheeler, called the Alfa. Mahindra has not yet announced the pricing and availability of this goods carrier.

      they are still unstable. I thought the market had matured up and moved into 4 wheeled load carriers.
