I am looking forward to the actual approval. Imagine if we could use golf cart like electric vehicles for last mile connectivity... Amazing..

Auto Rickshaws are very overpriced. Quads are equally overpriced. At best they can replace the 3 wheeler version.

TATA should develop a lower cost Nano .. Just a "Nan" removing components that add weight and cost and price it 50k lower than the Bajaj Quad. Very doable and much safer.

I am being sarcastic. Would hate to see the quad succeed at anything but replacing the 3 seater Rickshaw, in which case too a skimpy Nan (Nano) would be better.

There is nothing cute about this contraption and I really hope against hope the union govt. doesn't give approval for this. All I see is a sinister machine for making more mullah for another powerful business house.

The biggest issue I see on our roads is relative speed difference between various vehicles occupying the same piece of tarmac. Most vehicles do not maintain a safe enough speed due to poor mechanical condition, age, load, capability and poor and less engaged drivers. This is a bigger problem than over-speeding!! Reduces the flow of traffic on road and adds stress and impatience to everyone.

And this doodah is going to add to this menace.

What's the status of this?

I thought all had been cleared, but I'm yet to see any formal announcements from Bajaj.

I am keen to see autorickshaws (atleast in Tiers 1 and 2 towns) getting replaced by these small 4 wheelers. Maybe subsidised by the govt to some extent (in the interest of safety). Can't expect Bajaj to subsidize, as it essentially means a major cannibalization of its own rickshaw product.

Nano was denied permission for rick replacement as a taxi is what I understand. Why the double standards. It definitely is a much safer and better vehicle compared to Qute and same price range too.

If this is allowed for personal use , then the mandatory safety equipment of airbags and ABS should be in place as well. That is said to be one of the reasons for discontinuing Nano . Nano is otherwise safer and a more accomplished car. Even without airbags , it may be more safer than some of the other cars out there in real life.
