Bajaj Auto Limited Company and Renault-Nissan Alliance decided to deprive of the title \"The cheapest car in the world\" the compact car Tata Nano.
The basis of the cheapest car in the world was taken in India popular hybrid car and a motorcycle, which is also called auto-rickshaw. But, in contrast to the scooter, Bajaj RE60 has a four-door cabin and four wheels.
Indians with in close collaboration with Renault-Nissan have made the car worth a total of $ 2215.
This car with the seating capacity 2+2 or 2+3 was created in Bajaj Auto.
About four years ago, the largest Indian manufacturer of motorcycles, rickshaws and cars Bajaj Auto Limited and the Renault-Nissan alliance conceived to create extra-car for emerging markets. For the first time in 2008 - the company showed a concept car, but the other day, after some reworks later was demonstrated a serial copy, named RE60.
This narrow and high 4-door car is even more compact than its main competitor, Tata Nano. Thus, the length of micro van is 2752 mm, the width is 1312 mm, and the height is 1650 mm. As for the Nano, it is 3099 x 1495 x 1652 millimeters accordingly. The little one is moving due to the more than 200 cc water-cooled engine (located in the rear part of the body) with the power output of 20 horsepower. It uses at average 2.8 liters of fuel per 100 km and emits into the atmosphere 60 g / km of CO2. This one characteristic of the car makes it the first one to emit the lowest amount of CO2 in the world.
To reach 100 km / h from the start this 400-pound machine requires ... at least more power, and now the maximum speed is not exceeding 70 km / h.
The most important thing for Bajaj RE60 is its price. The \"baby\" Bajaj RE60, presumably, will be asked for about 2215 to 3650 U.S. dollars. Updated recently Tata Nano is currently estimated at $ 2730, but it is much larger, more productive and can reach 105 km / h.
The cheapest car in the world-Bajaj RE 60 was officially presented to the public in 2012 during Auto Expo in New Delhi.
