The Auto Expo is yet to officially begin, but Bajaj has already fired a significant salvo. They have just unveiled the RE60, their small, eco friendly vehicle.

The RE60 certainly looks striking, as small cars go. The front fender looks a little overdone, but when painted in the same colour as the body, it blends in better. At first glance, it is compact, but the interior is surprisingly roomy, much like the Tata Nano.

The car is fuel injected and uses twin spark ignition, and it is water cooled. The company claims a real world fuel mileage of 35 kpl, with a carbon emission of 60 grams per kilometre, which also reflects in the name RE'60'. The body weighs 400 kg and the car is powered by a 4-stroke engine. There is also a fuel injected CNG variant available. No electric options will be available.

The compact RE60 has a turning radius of 3.5 metres. On the inside are moulded seats, 400 litre boot space, digital instruments. And to keep the windscreen clean is a single windscreen wiper.

The RE60 will be available in two versions - commercial and deluxe. The RE60 comes powered by a 200 cc petrol engine that is rear mounted. The engine is a four valve, fuel injected, liquid cooled affair with an all new transmission linked to it. The car can make 20 bhp and will also be available in LPG and CNG variants. Bajaj has no diesel variant planned for the car as the diesel engine will be too heavy.

 

The car will be ready for production in a few months time, and will be manufactured in Aurangabad at the three-wheeler plant whose capacity will be expanded.

Pricing details are yet to be revealed.

Appreciate Bajaj's efforts. Bajaj should kept designs in mind. This car looks terribly ugly. The ugly carling.

is it a SABBON KA DABBA? How come a Pulsar type designing company could do this. Even Bajaj RE auto is having a good aesthetic looks than this car. For this design it took years to build? Top speed of 70km/per hr, will it pull 4 or 5 seaters in hilly location or how many Kms it can go at a stretch? Even fuel economy only after on rds

A nice cute SOAP BOX. Top speed 70km/hr? will it pull if 5 persons are seated? especially hilly areas and steep. Total disappointment from Pulsar designer. No catch for pulse of the customer. Even RE Auto looks good than this one

Hello Bajaj, Great Job, a bit late down the timeline...you have been producing Three wheelers for centuries, why it took so late for you to upgrade to 4 wheels as you have done now? Happy to note that you are changing with times...as is well said "If you do no not get updated you sure are going to be outdated!" wish you all the best ,please offer this car as a buy back for the existing Auto Rickshaw owners ,,nothing wrong in helping them.
