Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!

The controversial Bajaj RE60 has managed to dodge its initial hurdles and is waiting for the final go ahead from the government.

The RE60 creates a new segment in the Indian auto market called the quadricycles. A quadricycle fills up the gap between a three wheeled rickshaw and an entry level car.

To be marketed as an urban transportation solution, the quadricycle will mainly target the commercial operators. The government has also announced saying that quadricycles cannot be used as private transportation.

Of course Bajaj has officially unveiled the production version but here is an interesting spyshot from Motorbash.com. For the first time, we are able to see the taillight detailing of the RE60 when the lights are on.

Bajaj RE60 taillight detailing
Bajaj designers did a commendable job with the taillight detailing of the RE60.

Despite being built to a strict cost target, Bajaj designers have managed to incorporate trendy brake light elements. The C-shaped lighting patten immediately reminds us of that of the Skoda Fabia.

Bajaj continues to test the RE60 as evident from these spyshots. The vehicle is powered by a 200cc DTS-i engine whose power output is yet to be made public. The quadricycle weighs 450kg and has a claimed mileage of 35+ kpl. The top speed stands at 70kph and it emits only 60g/km of CO2 (hence the name RE60).

The Bajaj RE60 is expected to go on sale by the end of 2013.
