In a country where the fuel price is constantly increasing the need for a car that consumes little is essential. Although in the Argentine market there are already economic models none can go 36 kilometers per liter like the Bajaj Qute does, a small city car developed by the Indian giant in cooperation with Renault and Nissan.
The Qute was released in January 2012 and since then it has been marketed in various parts of the world, such as Russia, Poland, Portugal, Ukraine, Peru, Guatemala, Dominican Republic, Dubai, Turkey e Indonesia. In the IndiaHowever, your sale will start in 2019 when the law that classifies it as a car and not a quad as before (that is why it was only sold for commercial use) comes into force.
This little car, the first four-wheeler made by Bajaj, has capacity for four people and has a 200 cm3 engine that delivers 20 horsepower and allows it to reach a speed greater than 70 km / h, something that makes it ideal to circulate in the city, although not on the route. The small impeller is attached to a box of five-speed sequential shifting. Plus, its carbon footprint is 37% smaller than the smallest car available.
“It is an affordable urban mobility solution on four wheels. Its closed body, seat belts and other features make it a safe and more convenient alternative to the two-wheeler at a similar operating cost., say from Bajaj about this vehicle.
WILL IT COME TO ARGENTINA?
In our country Bajaj is a well-known brand that enjoys many followers due to the quality of its motorcycles. The representation is held by the Iraola Group (Corven Autoparts, Corven Motos, Kymco, Kawasaki, Mondial and Artic Cat), which since this year has a business unit for the commercialization of cars, trucks and buses.
This initiative is undoubtedly in line with Bajaj's policy of exporting Qute to emerging markets. "We will look to export it where Bajaj three-wheelers and two-wheelers are popular ”, admitted Rajiv bajaj, CEO of Bajaj Auto to Business Standard. That is why it is easy to suppose that Argentina may be in their plans ...
How much could it be sold for? It is difficult to answer. As a reference it is worth saying that in India it will be sold to about U.S. dollar 2.500; while in Peru it is marketed to about U.S. dollar 5.000.
