The RE60 car is four-seater and this new baby for the Indian roads claims and promises on its low carbon emissions and fuel efficiency which the company has already told in detail much before its launch.
The look of the vehicle is almost like an enhanced size of a hatchback car with an elevated roof on top. This ultra low-cost minicar RE60 was developed in co-operation with the French motor company Renault SA and Japan’s Nissan Motor Company with India’s Bajaj Auto Ltd. The further teamwork and co-operation in RE60 will be known soon from these two international motor companies.
