- Around 70% market share in 3-wheeler segment belongs to Bajaj Auto’s RE brand which is immensely popular
Bajaj Auto is India’s leading three-wheeler brand. Its RE and Maxima models holds more than 70% market share. As compared to rivals Bajaj Auto offers supreme reliability, durability, mileage and low maintenance on its three-wheelers. This is what that makes Bajaj Auto to grab a lion share in India’s three-wheeler space. Bajaj Electric Auto is also in the works and the brand is now ready to begin its EV onslaught.
Bajaj RE Electric Auto – Range & Specs
RE Electric Auto is going to be launched very soon. The e-rickshaw has been spied on several occasions. Bajaj RE electric will offer 120 Km range on a single charge. The charging time is 4 hours which may increase or decrease with type of chargers being used.
It is unlikely that Bajaj Auto will offer fast charging technology on RE Electric. It’s a desirable feature which may increase revenue potential in auto rickshaw business. To distinguish it from ICE counterpart Bajaj Auto will offer the RE Electric in white colour shade with blue inserts just like the Mahindra Treo range of e-rickshaws.
As electric vehicles have totally flat floor board the space inside them is uncompromised and more than ICE vehicles. Bajaj RE Electric too have plenty of space at the back as there’s only battery and motor in the floor board. Of course there will be silent ride than what we see in ICE auto rickshaws.
Mahindra offers 7.37 kWh battery pack in Treo range of e-rickshaws. Bajaj Auto RE Electric will also get battery pack of same capacity. Top speed will be of around 50 km/h. As you can see in pictures design is similar to the regular Bajaj RE Auto except the flat floor board. Bajaj Auto will offer full digital instrument cluster in RE Electric. This cluster will show information like battery percentage, distance to empty, distance travelled etc.

Electric Vehicles are nowhere close to be affordable. Upcoming Bajaj RE Electric is likely to get a price tag of around ₹3.00 lakh (ex-showroom). This price is little bit higher but will get shadowed the low running cost of the e-rickshaw. Petrol variants of the Bajaj RE auto rickshaw starts at around ₹2.27 lakh (ex-showroom).
