Joshua Maithya, a Car and General
Sales Executive for Piaggio said, “There is a growing need
for urban transport which is driven by the rapid expansion
of cities and towns in the 47 counties. Three wheelers are
gaining popularity as they are perceived to be safer than
“The Piaggio Romanza features a drop
top hood and coordinated half doors and is available in
white, blue and red. Designed for a driver and two rear
passengers, this open carriage style makes it a great
option for couples wishing to enjoy the outdoors for
picnics, or sight-seeing for short distances from towns
and for movement between hotels at the coast.“
The Piaggio three wheelers are a
popular mode of transport in many urban centres especially
in Mombasa and Malindi. Because their running costs are low
they are very economical as taxis. There are also van and
pick-up models which are used for delivery work, courier
services, laundry and fast food operations.
The addition of the Romanza brings to
six different Piaggio passenger and cargo models sold and
serviced by Car and General.
