The launch of the vehicle will be hard earned as the company had to contest various PILs claiming the vehicle is not safe. The company somehow managed to get the vehicle listed under the urban commercial vehicle category after marathon efforts. The launch will be a bad news for three wheeler manufacturers and drivers as RE60 clearly looks to have an edge over them. RE60 is surely prepared to provide more safety to the commuters who till now had to trust upon the unstable three wheelers. The vehicle is expected to launch at a price of INR 2 lakhs (ex-showroom). The quadricycly will be coming to India after passing the European Whole Vehicle Type approval. The company is also expected to reveal details of the private version of the model on the launch today. Though it is going to be a hard earned occasion for manufacturer of this vehicle but they are a little wary about the launch of Tata Magic which will be done in some time and is expected to face stiff competition from it.
