The Bajaj Qute, a much-awaited quadricycle is all set to be exported globally even as it awaits the Supreme Court verdict to introduce it in the Indian market. The 4-wheeler ultra compact passenger vehicle, which was earlier known as RE60, will be launched as Bajaj ‘Qute’ in 16 markets in America, Africa, Asia and Europe at a price which is estimated to be USD 2000.
The partners of the company athwart Africa, Asia, America and Europe are thrilled about the development opportunities that the vehicle offers. Fabrication of the Bajaj Qute has already begun in full swing at the company’s Aurangabad facility and the shipment for the export markets is likely to commence at the end of September or the first week of October.
The Bajaj Qute is motorized by a water cooled, 4-valve DTSi engine which delivers a fuel economy of an appealing 36 kmpl. It can arrive at a top speed of 70 kmph. Bajaj Auto claims that Qute would be used as a beautiful intra-city 4-wheeler. This is the first Indian made quadricycle to meet up the inflexible European norms. The company still awaits the verdict from the Supreme Court of India over the creation of a new vehicle category called ‘quadricycles’.
Bajaj Auto had previously showcased the RE60 in 2012. This was a mini four-wheeler power-driven by a 200 cc petrol engine which is mounted at the rear end. This was also an intra-city urban transport. Even though it was geared up for the launch, RE60 was mired in legal tangles related to its manufacturing.
