Bajaj Auto may launch RE60 Quadricycle by the fiscal end

CarDekho has been constantly informing you about Bajaj RE60, which was waiting for the government clearance. Few days back, the government of India has allowed quadricycles to run on roads as public transport within city limits. Now, the rumors are on rife that Bajaj will launch the RE60 by the end of this fiscal year. Earlier, it was stated that Bajaj RE60 will hit Indian shores by the festive season (Diwali and Dushera), which is the best time to launch a new product in the country. But, due to delay in government clearance, the plans of launching quadricycle has postponed to later date.

After getting the clearance, we could soon see RE60 running on streets, overtaking the three wheelers. Quadricycles are more safer than the 3-wheelers, as it sports a fully covered body structure with hard top and doors. Bajaj RE60 looks like a car, but the maximum speed limit and engine capacity are lower. It is expected that the Bajaj RE60 could be priced around Rs. 1 lakh, which would emerge as an unmatchable product and would effect the sales of autorickshaw by a huge margin.

Showcased a day before 2012 Auto Expo, the Bajaj RE60 has been spotted couple of times on the Indian roads during its test rounds. The RE60 will derive power from a 200cc, single cylinder, liquid cooled engine that is capable of developing 20bhp and delivering a fuel economy of 35kmpl, which will be the USP of Bajaj RE60. The top speed of the RE60 has a top speed of 70kmph. It is also claimed to produce the minimum amount of emission which stand at 60 grams of CO2 for every kilometer. The company might also launch the CNG version of RE60 as time progresses.
