Bajaj has been in the news a few times regarding the company's four-wheeler, the Qute. Now, the Indian automaker has launched the Qute (formerly called the RE 60) in Indonesia at a price of IDR 65 million (Rs 3.29 lakh), making the Bajaj Qute the most affordable four-wheeler in Indonesia.
Measuring 2,752mm in length, 1,312mm in width, and 1,652mm in height makes the Bajaj Qute one of the smallest passenger cars in the world. Also, a wheelbase of 1,925mm adds to the car's compact design.
The Bajaj Qute is powered by a 0.2-litre (200cc), water-cooled single-cylinder, triple spark engine that makes 13bhp and 19.6Nm of torque. The engine is mated to a 5-speed sequential gearbox. The Qute returns a claimed mileage figure of 36km/l.
To keep the Bajaj Qute cost effective, creature comforts such as air conditioning, power steering, power windows, and an audio system are omitted. The Bajaj Qute is available in six colour options.
What makes the Bajaj Qute interesting is the fact that it is the first Indian made quadricycle that has managed to pass stringent European quadricycle norms.
Bajaj had earlier mentioned that the Qute will be made in India and exported to 16 countries around the world in continents such as Asia, Africa, Latin America, and Europe. Unfortunately, the Qute never got the necessary paperwork to be sold in India.
