Bajaj Auto’s ultra-lowcost micro car, Qute can now make its debut in India with the Supreme Court approving quadricycle as a new category of vehicle. The road transport and highways ministry issued the final notification on Tuesday regarding the standards for quadricycle which specifies its weight, emission and safety features. According to it, the passenger quadricycle will have a maximum weight of 475 kg, and it will have to pass the mandatory crash test before launch to ensure it abides by the passenger safety standards.

Aside from those running on conventional fuel, the government has also given approval for the electric and hybrid quadricycles. This gives auto manufacturers an opportunity to come up with quadricycles powered by hybrid systems or electric systems. To ensure safety of the passengers, the government has set stringent safety standards for the quadricycle which according to officials are sterner than the European standards. 

As for the Bajaj Qute, the company will first have to obtain a certificate from the the Automotive Research Association of India to launch its ultra-lowcost micro car in the country. Just to brush up your memory, the India-made Bajaj Qute received two star rating in the crash test conducted by Euro NCAP. The crash test was however conducted on a different set of parameters, as opposed to the conventional cars.
