Bajaj Qute – Know The Best Things About India’s First Quadricycle-We see a variety of vehicles on the Indian roads, including cars, trucks, carts, three-wheeler auto rickshaws, etc. However, the door for a new category of the vehicle never closes, and the public is always looking for a unique and innovative alternative to the existing means.
Keeping with this need, Bajaj has made a valiant attempt of introducing India’s very first quadricycle, the Bajaj Qute. You can refer to Bajaj Qute as an intermediate between a three-wheeler and a car, as it has four doors and a roof and runs on a 216 cc engine.
Although Bajaj first introduced the vehicle at the 2012 Auto Expo in Delhi, it took them a while before they could introduce the vehicle in the market due to the lag they received while requesting permission from the transport department to formally launch the vehicle.
However, the Qute isn’t going to be registered as the conventional Bajaj Qute car, but it has got a category of its own, a quadricycle.
