Quadricycle: An alternative to Auto Rickshaw in Mumbai?

With the launch of Bajaj Qute Quadricycle and state's nod for using it for commercial purpose, it can possibly be a potential threat for auto rickshaws in the city.


Bajaj launched its Qute Quadricycle in Maharashtra and it has the honour of being the first Quadricycle to be launched in the country. The vehicle is available in both petrol and Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) variant and is priced at  ₹2.48 lakhs and  ₹2.78 lakhs respectively. 

The new Bajaj Qute quadricycle bridges the gap between a three-wheeler rickshaw and a proper four-wheeler and could possibly be a replacement for the former.

A state transport official also said that Qute could possibly be a new mode of public transport in the city. The state has also given a go-ahead to anyone who wants to run it as a mean of public transport in the city. 

Mumbai Autorickshaw men's Union leader Shashank Rao, showing their discontent opposed the entry of Quadricycles and said that it could be a direct threat to rickshaw drivers.
