Bajaj RE60 CNG reports a mileage of 40km/kg efficiency that is quite imposing for the small look of the machine. Auto car India revealed the reports of the long tested and awaited product, as the affordable quadricycle which the company is working on to be out on the roads, since the Delhi Motor Show 2012. The machines on test are pulling out an amazing fuel efficiency of 40km/kg of CNG approx.
The machine is considered as a safe and extraordinary replacement to the three-wheeler. The budget four-wheeler, with a monocoque chassis, weighs just 400 kg, and gets its power by a 216 cc water-cooled DTSi 4-valve engine with a closed loop fuel injection system. The engine is paired to a 5-speed manual transmission. The engine is seated at the rear of the vehicle, and drives the rear wheels. It was announced by Bajaj, that the model would have petrol, CNG and LPG variants of the RE60, last year at the Delhi auto Expo 2014.
Bajaj Auto, India’s second largest 2-wheeler manufacturer, claims that the low-speed, lightweight quadricycle pulls out 37 km/l of petrol and emits a mere 60 grams of CO2 per km. The Government of India has recognized the RE60 as ‘quadricycle’, as it is incapable to reach speeds of 90 km/h to be classified as a ‘car’. The Brand had planned to launch the machine last year in October, however that the safety of the vehicle was a concerning issue for its release. Now the clearance from the Supreme Court would give a green signal for its sales.As reported in recent news in the newspaper, the completive brands are planning to get into a similar venture.
