The burgeoning partnership between Bajaj India and Metropolitan Motors is set to change the disorderliness that has characterized the last-mile journeys in our urban and rural settings, currently dominated by tricycles and motorcycles.
Metropolitan Motors, the sole distributor of Bajaj vehicles in Nigeria, has introduced the BAJAJ QUTE into the Nigerian market. The QUTE was launched on Sunday, December 10, 2017, at the Haven Event Centre Ikeja.
Qute is a four-wheeler, yet not a car. It comes under a whole new category — the quadricycle. It is a new-age vehicle that carries the attributes of a three-wheeler as well as those of a car. It is compact, lightweight, and has a carbon footprint that is 37% lesser than the smallest car available. Like a car, it is spacious and has an enclosed body structure, giving the driver and passengers a comfortable and safe ride. Also, it has adequate space for luggage and runs at optimum restricted city speed, which provides safety for all.
In this day and age when rapid urbanization has led to excess congestion on city roads, Bajaj Qute is indeed a smart move: it makes city travel safer, smarter and more economical. Bajaj Qute initially called the RE60, meets the European Standards and Guidelines of Quadricycle for quality and design. Its high-end technology equips it to run at a restricted speed of 70kmph while utilizing fuel as little as 1 liter for 36 km.
This innovative product from Bajaj India, the pioneer of last mile city transport, is engineered for safety, convenience, and smarter commuting. To the operators, the Qute is more economical than deploying a car for taxi operation due to its smaller engines and lighter body.
By this product, Metropolitan has begun a transformation of the last mile transportation in Nigeria. With this product, passengers can now commute on the last leg of their journey in a safer, smarter and more economical manner.
