Govt. announces BS6 emission norms for quadricycles

The government of India has announced BS6 emission norms for quadricycles (L1 category).

The new emission norms are in line with the EU's World motorcycle test cycle (WMTC) cycle used to measure fuel consumption and emissions in motorcycles.

The L1 category of vehicles were introduced in 2018. These are 4-wheeled vehicles that are of the same size as a 3-wheeler. A quadricycle has to be within 3,000 mm in length, 1,500 mm in width and 2,500 mm in height. It can have a maximum speed of 70 km/h.

A quadricycle can be used for private and commercial purposes. Vehicles like the Bajaj Qute fall in this category.
