Polaris Eicher Multix Features

While the Multix doesn’t have the creature comforts one can find in passengers cars that retail at the same price point (read- air conditioning, power steering, disc brakes), it does get some features that enhance the safety and ruggedness. The Multix gets-

  • Tubular frame structure
  • Roll-over protection system
  • Independent front and rear suspensions

Let’s be honest, the Multix is nothing like anything else out there. True, it misses out on creature comforts, but the makers of Multix never intended to pit this vehicle against passenger cars. Instead, the Multix should be seen as not just a personal mobility solution but also as a highly practical offering that can come in handy for most small-scale businessmen and farmers in Tier II and Tier III cities. The Multix is a 3-in-1 vehicle that can switch between roles of being a people carrier, goods carrier and even a power generator!
