Newest affordable, small auto not a car, India company says
India has a new ultracheap small car. Well, sort of. The company that introduced it Tuesday, Bajaj Auto, best known for making motorcycles and motorized three-wheeled rickshaws, does not even call its newest product, the RE60, a car. Bajaj (no relation to the reporter) prefers the generic term four wheeler. Executives say they have no plans to market it to average consumers. Instead, they are aiming for drivers of rickshaws, which are powered by motorcycle engines and operate as short-distance taxis in India.
