Bajaj has been manufacturing the quadricycle in India since four years for export markets.
Why Bajaj Qute RE60???? The owners says that the other common low cost vehicles like motorcycles, auto rickshaws and small cars all perform adequately in the city, but they’re not perfect. Quite has many common abilities of all of them. The small motorcycle-sized engine gives it great mileage – Bajaj claims 36kmpl from petrol and 45km/kg from CNG. Like an auto, it’s still basic people transport and so it’s relatively inexpensive and cheap to maintain – Baja Claim as little as Rs 1.53 per kilometer. And it borrows the stability and the obvious protection of four doors and four wheels from a regular car. So it can legally carry more people than a motorcycle and is more weather proof and stable than an auto. But with no AC or even a blower, and the fact that it’s confined to city limits, it’s not as free roaming as a car either. And it is obvious that without AC many will not prefer to drive in the recent years even a commercial vehicle as the heat is increasing every year throughout the country.
Is it cute?? The Qute actually looks quite conventional. Its face consisits with two large halogen headlamps and a large chrome Qute logo between them. Under that is a grill that borrows some more tech from the motorcycle world. It uses the ram air principle to force air up the A-pillar and into the cabin or onto the windshield for better ventilation. The bonnet opens to reveal a 77-litre storage area for shopping or a small bag, but it’s subject to a 20kg weight limit. On the side, you’ll notice that Bajaj has taken efforts to give the shoulder a characterful slope even though the sliding windows would have been easier to execute with a straight horizontal window line.
Its key features are Power Windows, Airbags, ABS, Central Locking, Fog Lamps, Child Safety Lock, Adjustable headlamps, Gear Shift Indicator
