With 4,917 vehicles shipped from January to November 2009, Piaggio Veicoli Commerciali saw a 5.7% improvement in sales in the first eleven months of the year, compared with 4,654 vehicles shipped in Italy in the first eleven months of 2008.

The continuing improvement in Piaggio Veicoli Commerciali’s performance reflects the structural progress of its brand, fuelled by the success of the Porter and Porter Maxxi ranges. Over the past few months, technical and aesthetic enhancements have been introduced on both models as well as new environment-friendly bi-fuel engines using LPG and methane and a new electric version. Today, these environmentally clean models account for 75% of Piaggio Porter deliveries, reflecting the success of a complete range in meeting the needs of a market increasingly attentive to environmental sustainability and to flexibility in installing fittings.
