Bajaj Lite

Recommended Posts

The country's second largest bike maker Bajaj Auto Ltd on Tuesday cocked a snook at those who sniggered at its efforts to get into the passenger car market.

The company silently unveiled its 'Lite' concept car in New Delhi, two days before the much hyped launch of Tata Motors' Rs 1 lakh car.

Bajaj Auto, the country's second biggest two-wheeler maker, said it plans to bring out its small car in collaboration with Renault and Nissan within four years but it will not be for Rs 1 lakh (Rs 100,000).

"I know Carlos Ghosn (President and CEO of Renault and Nissan) has set a target of 2010 for Bajaj-Renault car. While it is hard to put any time-frame, we can say in two-four years we can expect to have the product ready," Bajaj Auto managing director Rajiv Bajaj told reporters in New Delhi.

Bajaj declined to give a specific price of the small car. Ghosn has earlier stated that Renault was looking for a $3,000 car in India, a move triggered by Tata Motors' Rs 1 lakh car that will be unveiled later this week.

Here's the Bajaj small car, but  it won't cost Rs 1 lakh!

January 08, 2008

The country's second largest

bike maker Bajaj Auto Ltd on Tuesday cocked a snook at those who

sniggered at its efforts to get into the passenger car market.

The company silently unveiled its 'Lite'

concept car in New Delhi, two days before the much hyped launch of Tata

Motors' Rs 1 lakh car.

Bajaj Auto, the country's second

biggest two-wheeler maker, said it plans to bring out its small car in

collaboration with Renault and Nissan within four years but it will not be for Rs 1 lakh (Rs 100,000).

"I know Carlos Ghosn (President and

CEO of Renault and Nissan) has set a target of 2010 for Bajaj-Renault

car. While it is hard to put any time-frame, we can say in two-four

years we can expect to have the product ready," Bajaj Auto managing

director Rajiv Bajaj told reporters in New Delhi.

Bajaj declined to give a specific

price of the small car. Ghosn has earlier stated that Renault was

looking for a $3,000 car in India, a move triggered by Tata Motors' Rs

1 lakh car that will be unveiled later this week.

The dash looks a bit cluttered it will be good to c how we will look towards the side to check on the gauges. Also the gear lever is too high up it can accidentally shift when the driver or passenger moves around. If its a CVT it  would cause a lot less problem then a manual. But bajaj is saying its "Semi manual" God knows wat dat means.

I was speculating that Tata's one lakh car would kill the Bajaj three wheeled auto-rickshaw. Bajaj is planning well ahead before Tata succeeds in that. Good for everybody.
