Bajaj Auto, which is among the many OEMs participating at the Bharat Mobility Expo in New Delhi, is displaying a full spectrum of vehicles that run not only on petrol but also on a range of cleaner alternative fuels such as ethanol-blends, CNG, and electric.

There are six vehicles on display comprising two motorcycles, one scooter, passenger and cargo three-wheelers, and the Qute quadricycle.

Dominar E27.5: This variant of the Dominar 400 touring motorcycle has a variant which uses a 27.5% ethanol-petrol blend.

Pulsar NS160 Flex: This eco-friendly variant of the popular Pulsar motorcycle runs on both ethanol and petrol. Flex-Fuel is the intelligent capability of the engine to run on a combination of ethanol and gasoline mix which can be varied at the behest of the customer. These vehicles are ready to support the initiatives of the Government of India on ethanol-blended and ethanol fuels.

Chetak Premium: Bajaj Auto’s electric scooter, which is seeing strong demand in the marketplace, is the EV product on show.

Electric 3-wheeler (passenger and cargo): The Bajaj RE E-Tec 9.0 passenger-carrying and Bajaj Maxima XL Cargo E-Tec 12.0 are the recently launched electric three-wheeler passenger and cargo variants of the high-selling Maxima ICE three-wheeler.

Qute CNG: India’s first Auto Taxi, the Bajaj Qute, is a 4-seater hatchback for commuters that comes in 2 variants, LPG and CNG. Running on cleaner and cheaper alternatives to gasoline, the Bajaj Qute has superior range, all-weather monocoque body with attractively lower operating costs to ensure an affordable and comfortable commute.

Rakesh Sharma, Executive Director at Bajaj Auto, said: “It is a great opportunity to showcase some of our innovative mobility solutions to not just the customer, but also to all stakeholders like policy makers, vendors, and collaborators. Our technology and manufacturing capabilities are being leveraged to delight customers in India as well as in over 90 countries where we operate. The displayed range has been carefully selected to demonstrate our commitment to not just conventional fuel based options but also to newer and cleaner alternative fuels in step with the goals of society."
