Bajaj Qute ‘Small Car’ To Launch In India Soon

17

The Bajaj Qute car is all set to launch in India after a wait of six years. The Ministry of Road and Transport has given the green signal to legalize quadricycles in India. Final notification of this policy is expected to come by the end of this week.

With the final approval from the Ministry of Road and Transport set to come by the end of this week, we are soon going to see the Bajaj Qute car on Indian roads. This car was first showcased at the 2012 Auto Expo. And since then, Bajaj has been fighting for the inclusion of Quadricycles in the Motor Vehicles Act which so far had no provision for such vehicles. The Qute is already in production at Bajaj’s factories and is currently being exported to Central American markets, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Bangladesh. Soon the company is also planning to begin selling this quadricycle in Mexico as well. If all goes well, we might see the Qute plying on Indian roads within the next 2-3 months.

The Qute isn’t a new idea, oh no, not by any stretch of the imagination. It was first unveiled a few days prior to the 2012 Auto Expo and was known as the RE60 in its initial days. The Qute gave birth to ‘Quadricycles’, new vehicle segment in India. Much like a small car in its form, the Qute is apparently set to displace auto-rickshaws for intra-city public transport services. The launch of the Qute has seen a huge delay owing to many PILs formed against it in various courts across the country.

Bajaj Qute Car Launch Date

Launch Date (expected) Second half 2018

Earlier, due to the huge number of hurdles which the Qute had to face, we were not quite so sure about its launch in India. However, with the recent developments, it seems that this quadricycle might launch in our country within the next couple of month or so.

Earlier Mr Rajiv Bajaj stated that the biggest reason for the delay of the small car’s launch is the never-ending string of tactics being used by the rivals. “It is well known that the only country where the Qute is not permitted in our country (and it is) only because of competition. They have used all kinds of nefarious techniques to create problems through political circles and through courts. I will say this very candidly that they have stooped to levels that we thought they never will. (But) If it means we have to live without one country (then) we will live without one country.”

Bajaj Qute Car Price

Minimum Price Rs 1.40 Lakh
Maximum Price Rs 1.60 Lakh

First things first, the Qute isn’t meant for private car buyers, at least not yet. Secondly, all rumours of a base price of merely Rs 60000 should be put to rest because the Qute will cost at least Rs 1.40 lakh. We really fail to understand where the Rs 60000 price rumour came from. It has almost always been known that the Qute will cost at least Rs 1.40 lakh when it goes on sale in the country. The CNG variant could cost as much as Rs 1.60 lakh. This price is slated to go upwards if you choose the various options, like an MP3 player, this car is expected to provide.

Bajaj Qute Car Specifications

Engine 200cc DTS-i single-cylinder
Fuel Type Petrol, CNG
Max. Power 20 BHP
Top Speed 70 KMPH
Mileage 35 KMPL

Bajaj has already showcased the petrol variant of the Qute quadricycle. We’ve also caught testing the CNG variant of the Qute (you can see the spy images below). The Qute doesn’t get an engine befitting of a car, simply because it isn’t one. True to its utilitarian aspirations, the Qute small car comes with a 200cc DTSi petrol engine that has a maximum power output of 20 BHP. This engine is likely to be compatible to run on both Petrol and CNG. The CNG variant is likely to go on sale in cities where Petrol/Diesel-run commercial vehicles aren’t allowed anymore. The Qute small car has a claimed top speed of 70 KMPH and can return a mileage of 35 KMPL.
