Here comes the Honda India auto rickshaw!

Hot on the heals of the Honda Unicorn will come the first Honda three-wheeler, a Honda auto rickshaw that will take on the likes of the ubiquitous Bajaj rickshaw and the Piaggio Ape.

The new rickshaw from Honda will feature a modified Honda Eterno engine (150 cc), and may later be offered in a 200 cc version too.

We do not know for sure, but sure we haven't heard about any three-wheeler from Honda before that is a passenger carrier like the proposed three-wheeler. Honda may have other three-wheeled vehicles, but they are most probably ATVs (all terrain vehicles).

So after making its mark in the scooter market and winning the battle with India's largest scooter manufacturer; and about to launch a motorcycle that will take on the same manufacturer's best-selling motorcycle, Honda India is about to take on the same auto manufacturer in the three-wheeled passenger segment too. Very, very interesting. 

The other players in the three-wheeler segment in India are Mahindra and Mahindra, Piaggio and Atul Auto - all of whom are marginal players in the market. So there is a good chance that Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India will manage to snatch a large piece of the three-wheeler pie. Check back on this page later for an update as and when more news becomes available.
