Three years after Bajaj developed the quadricycle, the government of India is yet to come up with a policy for the quadricycle segment.
During the 2014 Auto Expo, Bajaj claimed that the RE60, the newest quadricycle from the Pune based manufacturer will be ready to hit the dealers as soon as the government gives the thumbs up.
RC Maheshwari, the President for Bajaj Commercial Vehicles says that the company is ready for commercial production of the RE60.
Once the government of India notifies the norms and policies, Bajaj will take around two to four months for ARAI (Automotive Research Association of India) to certify the quadricycle.
Bajaj Auto has set up production of these RE60 quadricycles in its Aurangabad plant, where it currently manufactures its three-wheelers.
Once the RE60 quadricycles hit production, the three-wheeled rickshaws have a high chance of being replaced since four wheels are safer than three wheels.
