Bajaj Qute Launched at INR 2.48 Lakh; 2 Variants on Offer

First revealed at the Auto Expo 2012 in Greater Noida under the name of RE60, the Bajaj Qute faced many hurdles over the years in terms of regulations. An amendment in the policies from the Government of India has finally made it possible for Bajaj to launch the Qute quadricycle in India. It has been launched in 2 variants, the petrol model is for personal use and the CNG model has been specifically designed for commercial use. The petrol variant of Bajaj Qute comes with a price tag of INR 2.48 lakh while the CNG model can be had for INR 2.78 lakh. The prices are much higher than what most sources expected for the Qute. Both the prices are ex-showroom Maharashtra. The Bajaj Qute is also available in Delhi, Chandigarh, Gujarat, Kerala, Rajasthan, UP and Orissa. New stipulations were formed by the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways when they decided to approve the quadricycles and change the policies. According to these new regulations, a vehicle will be considered a quadricycle only if it has a curb weight of fewer than 475 kilograms and passes the safety, emissions, and crash tests that are mandatory. These safety standards are considered to be more strict than the ones set in Europe for the same category. Other manufacturers and policymakers have been openly disapproving Bajaj Auto but the Qute is all set to make a statement and a name for itself. The quadricycle gets its power from a 216cc single-cylinder water-cooled petrol engine which has been mounted at the rear of the vehicle. Bajaj Qute comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox and the top speed claimed by the company is 70 kph. The mileage stands at 35 kmpl and 43 km/kg for petrol and CNG respectively. Here are the key technical specifications of Bajaj Qute.

Bajaj Qute has yet not been launched in India due to the ban imposed by the court. Its safety is still in question due to the size and engine power. So, there's no release date for its launch in India yet. But we can always expect things to be positive and hope that it will be launched in India soon. Till then we can only wait for the court to declare it safe because it is obviously safer than a 2 wheeler.

Bajaj has launched the Qute for 16 countries but its Indian launch has been postponed due to the case registered against Bajaj Autos regarding the safety of the vehicle in supreme court of India. The Qute was ready for production a long time ago and finally Bajaj launched it for export markets as the case would take long to settle in the Indian courts. The price for the same has been kept at INR 1,32,000($2000) for the other countries, pointing toward a lower tag if launched in the Indian market. It is powered by 217 cc engine producing 13 BHP and 19.6 NM of torque. The top speed has been rated at 70 kmph and it returns a company claimed mileage of 35 kmpl.
