Bajaj will unveil its much awaited small car on January 3, 2012 at the Taj Palace hotel in New Delhi in the run-up to the Auto Expo. The production ready car from Bajaj which will be showcased at Pragati Maidan comes four years after the original concept was shown at the Auto Expo in 2008.
According to sources, the Bajaj Small car is more of an upgraded three-wheeler rather than a scaled down hatchback and draws heavily on Bajaj’s expertise and experience in the three-wheeler segment.
Renault will be particularly interested in the Bajaj small car as it has the option of marketing it under the Renault brand as per an agreement with Bajaj. Though few technical details are known, the Bajaj Small car is likely to come with path-breaking fuel efficiency to offset a purchase price that is expected to be higher than the Nano’s.
The all-new car platform which can be used for private and commercial applications is likely to be launched as a commercial vehicle first before being upgraded for personal use.
