Uber to launch Bajaj Qute, a quadricycle in partnership with Bajaj Auto

Ride-hailing company, Uber has made an announcement to launch its new category, a quadricycle, called as Bajaj Qute on UberXS for affordable, quick, and smart urban commuting. The company has partnered with Bajaj Auto to launch the Qute in Bengaluru exclusively. The four-wheeled motor vehicle offers commute to four people, including the driver. It is much smaller and lighter than a regular vehicle, which helps to park in congested areas.

The team suggests that the Qute comes with two fuel options, i.e. petrol and CNG. However, all units available as UberXS rides will be powered by CNG, which is more eco-friendly as compared to petrol. UberXS will be available on the Uber app for riders starting from today, and it will be available in areas like Koramangala, Indiranagar, HSR Layout, and parts of the outer ring road. It is a brand-new category in South Asia (India) region.

The Qute will provide a mileage of 43km/kg, which accounts it for low running-cost vehicles and it promises to make urban commuting more environmental-friendly and affordable. It is an easy-to-drive option and suitable for daily commute as it has dash-mounted sequential shift gears. The turning radius of 3.5 m makes the vehicle easier to maneuver.

“Bajaj Qute is the first quadricycle in India. It will prove to be an ideal solution for the mobility challenges of congestion and pollution arising from rapid urbanization,”says Samardeep Subandh, Senior VP, Bajaj Auto.
