Tata Motors attacks government's move to allow quadricycles

By Religare

Auto major Tata Motors has hit out at the government's move to allow quadric-cycles on Indian roads, terming it as a backward step.

In a tweet, Karl Slym, MD Tata Motors said, "Why? The Govt.+ industry (sic) have been accelerating efforts in traffic safety & environment, now we consider Quadracycle (sic)! Why go backwards?"

A committee headed by Director of the International Centre for Automotive Technology (ICAT) Dinesh Tyagi is to submit its report to the Ministry of Road Transport & Highways for forming a policy on quadricycles.


"It is, however, more or less unanimous that the safety and emission standards must be equivalent to European norms for quadricycle," an official source said.

Bajaj Auto Ltd (BAL) has been pushing for allowing creation of a new class of four-wheelers or quadricycles so that it can commercially launch its RE60. However, it does not qualify as a car.

Tata Motors' Nano, meanwhile is powered by a 624 cc petrol engine, is being sold as a small car that meets all the criteria of a car.
