Aravind

Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Capable of returning a mileage of 36 km/l.

The Bajaj Qute (previously known as RE60) was spotted testing in Trivandrum, Kerala, courtesy of IAB reader Prashoy C.L. The production-spec model was unveiled on September 25, 2015, although it hasn’t gone on sale in India yet since the company is still awaiting approval from the Supreme Court for the quadricycle. In the meantime, Bajaj has introduced the Qute in Turkey.

Bajaj Auto is believed to be test-running the vehicle in Indian towns and metros to gauge the people carrier’ performance in real world conditions.

Weighing 400 kg (gross weight), the Bajaj Qute is powered by a Euro 3 compliant 217 cc single-cylinder water-cooled DTSi engine with 4-valves and a closed loop fuel injection system. It outputs 13.5 PS at 5,500 rpm and 19.6 Nm at 4,000 rpm, and is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox.

With a small engine and light weight, the quadricycle is capable of doing 36 km/l and CO2 emissions of 66 g/km, while the top speed is limited to 70 km/h. It will be available in petrol, CNG and LPG variants for both LHD and RHD markets.
