TVS King Auto Rickshaw

15 January 2010 15 Comments Posted By:Dileep

TVS Motors have entered the three-wheeler segment, with the launch of it’s auto rickshaw called the TVS King. In a bid to capture a share of the growing domestic and export market for 3-wheelers, the company will manufacture both petrol and CNG-powered autorickshaws.

TVS King comes with a 200 cc two-stroke low-friction engine. The company has promised a good mileage and a higher capacity engine, with the peak torque at lower RPMs. Fuel-injection technology being integrated, the fuel-efficiency should indeed be impressive. There is also the option of an electric start (ordinary version – hand start), albeit at a slightly higher price. Twin-headlamps, futuristic design, bottle-holder, magazine-holder, more leg-space for passengers and driver are some of the impressive features of the King. Also, the ric is priced very competitively, at a shade below it’s competitors. The price of the king will vary between Rs. 90,000 to Rs. 1,30,000. A 4-stroke version of the king is also in the pipeline.

The company is launching the King in a very gradual manner, as sales have started in the states of Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and Gujarat. The response, so far, has been pretty good. Since the 3 wheeler market has been a monopoly of a single manufacturer, we believe TVS can do well if they can roll-out a descent product. Bajaj Auto currently leads the three-wheeler market in the country, followed by Mahindra and Piaggio. Recently, Honda India also announced its intention to enter the three-wheeler business. So, it is indeed a good move by TVS to foray into this segment of the Indian automobile industry. Let’s wait and find out whether the ‘King’ can rule the 3 wheeler segment.

    @prakash kumar – The on-road price is believed to be ranging between Rs 90,000 and Rs 1.3 lakh. Slight variations would be present based on the model, and the taxes of the state where the vehicle is sold.

    @uday – Unfortunately, i do not have much info on this regard. I haven’t come across this seating option from TVS autos. But of course, you could alter the seating arrangements from some local seating and upholstery works. But do remember to keep the safety factor ahead of the rest, when altering the seating arrangements.
