Bajaj unveils the RE 60.
The Bajaj RE60 will be manufactured in Aurangabad.




New Delhi: Bajaj Auto, India's second largest bike maker, finally unveiled its first four-wheeler, a low-emission car - RE 60 on the eve of the 2012 Auto Expo in New Delhi.

The company, which had in 2008 showcased a concept small car but decided not to go ahead with the project.

High fuel efficiency and lower emissions are the key factors on which the company is banking on to make its foray into the car segment a success. The company expects a big growth opportunity by targeting the three wheeler segment.

The RE 60, according to Bajaj has high fuel-efficiency ratios. Bajaj claims that this vehicle has hit 40kmpl under test conditions and a realistic mileage in daily driving conditions should be above 35kmpl. The 200cc rear-mounted engine's emissions will be an incredible 60g of CO2 per km.

The RE 60 has body coloured bumpers and funky wheels. The interiors get a central speedometer cluster, folding front windows, 44-litre boot space, 95-litre under seat storage and prominent seatbelts in cabin. This four-wheeler gets a digital twin spark tech engine. It is also available in fuel injected CNG variant.

Slated to be launched this year, its engine is a new water-cooled DTSi 4 (Digital Twin Spark Ignition) and able to accelerate to a maximum speed of 70km per hour. The small car can accommodate four people.

Though Bajaj has not yet revealed the prices for the RE 60, it is believed to be a ultra-low cost car and will compete with the Tata Nano, currently the cheapest car in the world.

Bajaj has been working with Nissan Motor Co and Renault SA on a project to develop an ultra low-cost mini car. The Bajaj RE60 will be manufactured in Aurangabad.

As per an agreement with the Renault-Nissan alliance, BAL was supposed to develop and manufacture the vehicle and sold under the badge of the alliance.

The ultra low-cost car was first scheduled to hit the roads in India in 2011, but was delayed due to differences between the partners on pricing and design.

While Renault-Nissan wanted to price the car at around $2,500, Bajaj insisted on lowering the overall cost of ownership.

In 2010, Renault-Nissan announced the signing of a memorandum of understanding with Bajaj Auto to take forward their ULC car project. As per the MoU, design, engineering, manufacturing and supply base expertise for the ULC would be executed by Bajaj with the support of the alliance, while branding, marketing and selling will be by Renault-Nissan.

"They have not seen the product yet. They have seen only on virtual media. They will see it in Auto-Expo. If they are disinterested in the four wheeler they are free to walk away," Rajiv Bajaj, managing director, Bajaj Auto, said.

"Last century was scooters, this century was motorcycle. We have made a remarkable transition from a scooter to a motorcycle company. We've gone from selling cheapest scooters in the country to some of the most expensive motorcycles. For the last 8-9 quarters, Bajaj Auto has been the world's most profitable auto company. There has been valid criticism that Bajaj has not done justice to its 3 wheeler business even though we are largest in world. We have been urged to do something dramatic for the 3 wheeler business, as dramatic as the transformation from Chetak to Pulsar. These are a host of features that are not normal for this segment just like when we launched Pulsar. It's a testimony to our engineering," Bajaj added.

National Anthem of India: Over 15,000 sing 'Jana Gana Mana' in unison; create world record

AURANGABAD: In a rousing display of patriotism and unity, over 15,000 people from the city today participated in a mass singing of national anthem 'Jana Gana Mana', creating a world record in the process.

With a tally of 15,243, they took India into the 'Guinness Book of World Records' for "the most people singing a national anthem simultaneously", erasing the previous record held by Pakistan for 5,800 individuals, the organisers said.

Andrea Banfi, Head of Adjudicators, Guinness World Records Ltd (GWR), who had flown in from London, handed over a certificate acknowledging the feat, to Rajya Sabha MP and Chairman of city-based Lokmat Media, Vijay Darda, who accepted it on behalf of the local citizens.

Lokmat Media had organised the event at a sports complex here in Central Maharashtra to commemorate the completion of 100 years of the national anthem.

Talking to news persons, Darda showered praises on the city residents for creating the record.

"Aurangabad has done the nation proud, and we are humbled to have helped in the process. This is our collective gift to the nation on the eve of Republic Day. Aurangabad has put up a truly splendid show of national solidarity and India's unity in diversity."

People came from all walks of life and far-flung areas of Aurangabad to take part in the event. The entire stadium, with an official capacity of 45,000, was jam-packed. Hence, the final GWR tally of 15,243 came as a surprise to everyone.

Banfi said, "We were not able to include all the people present at the packed stadium in the count, as it was physically impossible to court everyone.


"After the first singing, many people left. But, for us to do a proper count as per the GWR standards, we requested Lokmat Media to ask the people to assemble once again, in a particular order, and sing the anthem again. The figure of 15,243 is what we arrived at after the second singing," Banfi added

Perkins India Pvt Ltd, a group company of US-based Caterpillar Inc, has plans to set up a greenfield facility to manufacture diesel and gas engines at Aurangabad.

According to sources, the company has finalised the location of the new facility, expected to go on stream in the second half of next year, at the upcoming second phase of the Shendra industrial estate. The proposed investment in the plant, for which Caterpillar has sought Mega Project Status, is around Rs 500 crore in the first phase, with a provision for expansion.

At Aurangabad, Perkins plans to make its 4000 series engines, currently made only in the UK, that are used in generator sets. The engines will be for sale in both the domestic as well as the export market, the source added.

Headquartered in Peterborough, UK, Perkins Engines Company Ltd is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Caterpillar Inc. The parent company is present in India through two facilities located in Tamil Nadu where construction machinery and engines are manufactured.

With six manufacturing sites worldwide, including two in China, Perkins is a leading manufacturer of industrial diesel and gas engines. These are used for a host of applications, including power generation and construction machinery. The company also sources components from India for use globally, and the setting up of a manufacturing facility for engines in India is expected to give a fillip to this business.

Demand for industrial land has prompted the Maharashtra Industrial Development Corporation to establish a second phase to the existing 800 hectare Shendra industrial estate in Aurangabad, home to Czech auto maker Skoda, Siemens, and Hindalco. Acquisition of 250 hectares for this purpose has been completed and Perkins is likely to be the first occupant of the new industrial estate.
