Powerland – why ATV?
Orchard farms traditionally use jeeps instead of tractor because of hilly terrain’s and 4×4 option. However jeeps are expensive and lack maneuverability within the farm due to a comparatively larger turning radius and overall width.
Thus, there was a need for a multi purpose all round vehicle that can serve the orchard farms.
ATVs are very popular in international markets. They are used in the orchard farm segment and are available only in petrol engines. They never entered Indian markets as India is a diesel driven market. Also, no international players have gotten approvals.
