Bajaj Auto and US-based MotoCzysz LLC will join hands and build a ‘next generation automobile.’
The details are sketchy, but according to the reports, a low cost electric car for the Indian masses is what they are setting out to accomplish. MotoCzysz revealed its E1pc electric superbike recently (pictured above; zero to 192km/h acceleration in around 7-8 seconds), and when they say next generation automobile, it has to be something affordable and unique. It certainly is not going to be a supercar.
Work on the first prototype of this ambitious project will begin this month in Portland, USA. What should we expect? Well, that's a tough one, but expect a slippery design, innovative interiors and a very distinct overall identity. Since it involves two companies having backgrounds of building two wheelers, could the final product be a cross between a bike and a car?
