First displayed at the Auto Expo back in 2012, the RE60 quadricycle was touted as a replacement for the three-wheeled auto rickshaws. The quadricycle was originally slated to be launched in October last year but PILs against the vehicle in various state high courts saw the launch postponed.
In February 2015, the Supreme Court made the move to bring all the cases against the RE60 from the high courts to the Supreme Court for a combined hearing. The hearing was expected to take place on April 22, but has now been deferred to mid-July. This means that the RE60 will face further delays before it can enter production.
Bajaj has, however, said that despite the delays in India, it is aiming to launch the quadricycle by year-end in Sri Lanka.
