Anjan Ravi, I'm a true-blooded petrolhead. Hope you enjoy our news stories, launch coverages, motorshow coverages and test drive reports.
Bajaj brought the production version of the RE60 quadricycle to the 2014 Auto Expo. We were also updated about the technical details of the RE60 including its fuel efficiency claim.
The RE60 is powered by a 216 cc liquid-cooled, 4-valve, fuel-injected engine with triple spark. Bajaj will offer the quadricycle in LPG, CNG and gasoline (petrol) variants. A 5-speed manual transmission will be used on the RE60 with its gearlever mounted on the dashboard.
The RE60 returns 37 km/l according to Bajaj and emits 60 grams of CO2 per km. We were previously told that the RE60 was capable of achieving more than 35 km/l (Bajaj did not disclose the official figure until now). The top-speed of the vehicle is rated at 70 km/h.
It remains unclear as to when series production of the RE60 starts, or when Bajaj intends to commence sales of the quadricycle.
Bajaj also showcased a concept version of an urban personal vehicle that adheres to the RE60's properties.
