Economic Times is reporting that Eicher Motors and Polaris are teaming up in order to develop a new small vehicle specifically for farmers and others in the agricultural space.
There is likely to be two different versions, a MPV-like van and a twin-cab pickup, both capable of transporting people and carrying loads such as produce.
Production is expected to commence some time this year in Jaipur, with engineers targeting a fuel efficiency of 25 km/l.
The vehicle will be powered by a 600 cc diesel engine, constructed with composite materials, and have a tubular frame.
The report also mentions that the new Eicher-Polaris vehicle will be comprised of 20kg of plastic in order to ensure a lightweight body.
