Multix, a personal utility vehicle, is launched this week by Eicher Polaris. It has cabin space for 5 people . The cargo space is 418 litres with 3 in back seat of the cabin. The back seat can be released to enlarge the cargo space to 1918 liters. The most important feature of this vehicle, pertinent for agriculture, is the 3 kW Electrical Power Take-off point. I always felt that small tools like brush cutters, augers, pumps etc should be electrical rather than with a small petrol engine. With the electrical power-take-off point (EPTP), such tools become feasible even in remote areas. Guess that the EPTP will appear in mini-tractors as well. With its small wheels, the Multix cannot be used as a mini-tractor. Otherwise, the small farmer need not have looked any further.
Innovative products appear in the Indian scene. Great development.
