ICB Exclusive: We show you Bajaj Auto’s revamped range of Autorickshaws

Bajaj Auto Limited must be one elated commercial vehicle maker, for the Indian government has just approved Quadricycles to be used on Indian roads. The first and the direct beneficiary of this policy is the RE60 Quadricycle, a four wheeler that Bajaj Auto is ready to build. While the RE60 Quadricycle will go on sale once Bajaj Auto manages to meet all regulatory norms, the automaker is also bullish on its three wheeler range, a sector in which it is the undisputed market leader.
