Uber had announced its partnership with Bajaj automobile to introduce Bajaj Qute passenger quadricycle in its fleet of UberXS services. The Bajaj Qute is essentially a driver-plus-three-passenger-quadricycle – a four-wheeled vehicle that’s smaller and lighter than a passenger car.
This partnership is an extension of Uber’s commitment towards lowering transportation costs, enhancing asset utilization and improving rider convenience. According to the company, Qute’s low running cost makes it suitable for daily commuting and it is easy to drive because of dash mounted sequential shift gears.
All units available as UberXS rides would be powered by the eco-friendly CNG fuel option, which provides a mileage of 43km/kg. UberXS is a brand-new category in the India region and would initially offer Bajaj Qute exclusively in Bengaluru. Uber’s riders would be able to see UberXS on the app starting Thursday and it would be available in Indiranagar, Koramangala, HSR Layout and parts of the outer ring road in Bengaluru.
