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.

The Indian Government have given the nod for the Quadricycle, a new small vehicle category to officially run on the Indian roads. Quadricycles are small four-wheeled personal vehicles which have been passed through a variety of emission tests and other tests under the guidance of Automotive Research Association of India – ARAI plus the Indian Government.

The green signal given to the Quadricycles is finally allowing the Bajaj Autos to launch Qute, their very own ultra-low cost micro car in the Indian market after so many legal delays. The Quadricycle Qute is powered by 216cc rear-mounted single cylinder engine which is mated to a four-speed manual transmission.

Bajaj Autos were officially rooting for the launch of the Quadricycle category in India like they have in other countries like Europe that focuses entirely on compact four-wheelers which are much safe and environment friendly.

As of now, there is no confirmation regarding the GST rates applicable with this category of vehicles while the notifications regarding the vehicles its weight, emission and safety features have already been dropped by the Government.

In order to guarantee passenger safety, the Quadricycle will have to go through several crash tests considering its kerb weight is only 475 kg. The Government has allowed the vehicle to be launched in two other electric and hybrid categories alongside the conventional fuel one. Bajaj Qute will also have to go through a series of highly strict emission tests for petrol, diesel and alternative fuels in order to check its worthiness over the road.

“The final standards for the category have been issued. Any company that manufactures quadricycle can sell it in India. We have ensured that the safety standards for quadricycle are more stringent than the European standards,” is the Government statement we have officially gathered as of now.
