Government may pave way for private use of Quadricycles, says report
Paving the way for a new segment of affordable four-wheelers for Indian families, the centre may approve the sale of quadricycles for private use, reported Hindustan Times.
Quadricycles are different from the regular four-wheelers and weigh almost half as much as entry-level small cars, with smaller and frugal engines equipped with basic features, the report said. In June, the government had approved it for commercial use.
“We will be issuing a notification in a day or two allowing the use of quadricycles for private use. Earlier, we had allowed them as a new transport category for commercial purpose. At present it is available as a petrol-driven vehicle only,” a senior official from the road transport and highways was quoted as saying in the report.
According to regulations, the vehicle has to weigh less than 475 kg and have to meet the crash protection and emission norms, the daily said. Bajaj Qute RE60, launched in 2012 is one of the first vehicles in the category, the report said, adding that the company could not launch it successfully as its rivals and industry bodies approached Supreme Court citing safety concerns.
